The Gazela Primeiro was built at the turn of the 20th century in a shipyard in Portugal. Built as a fishing vessel, she traveled yearly to Newfoundland for cod. Her career ended in 1969, but her purchase by the Independence Seaport Museum brought her to Philadelphia. The ship's ownership has since been transferred to the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild. She is continually maintained and operated by a crew of volunteers and participates in Tall Ship events up and down the Eastern Seaboard. While not officially open for tours while maintenance is being done, her crew members are often willing to give private tours. The beautiful ship is also available for dockside receptions, weddings and private parties with a maximum capacity of 150 people. If you’re interested in getting more information, joining the Preservation Guild, or reserving the ship, please contact the Guild at office@gazela.org.
