About the Fame:

Fame is a full-scale replica of the first American privateer schooner to get to sea during the War of 1812. Fame was also arguably the first privateer to send in a captured vessel. She seized over 20 prizes in the waters off Maine, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick before being lost in the Bay of Fundy in 1814. Launched in 2003 from the H. A. Burnham Boatyard in Essex, MA, this replica cruises on the Salem Sound, where pirates, privateers, East Indiamen, and men of war have been making history for 400 years.
