Empire Sandy

Location: Toronto, Ontario

Empire Sandy is one of the largest tall ships in Canada. At 200 feet this stunning three masted schooner was once used in WWII by the Royal Navy.

This Canadian flagged vessel is capable of accommodating 275 passengers. She presents an opportunity and excellent venue for new owner operators to conduct tours/expeditions or to be used dockside for weddings, evening dining and special events.
