Built in 1995, also by Treworgy Yachts, the Alliance was originally named the Kathryn B. and sailed as a part of a windjammer fleet in Maine. She was purchased in 2004 and moved to Yorktown, VA and rechristened the Alliance in honor of the American French alliance during the revolutionary war. Inland Seas Education Association acquired Alliance in 2022 as a response to increasing program demand. The name Alliance now represents the many partnerships ISEA has across the Great Lakes that make our work possible.

Alliance’s Current Location

Inland Seas is a member of Tall Ships America (TSA). Tall Ships America is an organization comprised of sail trainers and educators working aboard tall ships and dedicated to safe and effective ship operations.
