256-foot Full-Rigged Ship

Built in 1886

Based at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park

San Francisco's most prominent tall ship, permanently berthed at the Hyde Street pier. Originally built for the Britain-California grain trade, Balclutha switched to salmon fishing in 1902 and was renamed Star of Alaska in 1906. While she hasn't sailed in decades, at least she's still afloat–the only sailing ship of her size remaining on San Francisco Bay.
