ADVENTURE is a 53-foot historic replica of a 16th century colonial trading vessel designed by the late William Baker. Vessels of this type would have been used to transport goods such as tobacco, coffee and sugar between Charleston, New York and Bermuda. She was commissioned by the state of South Carolina and is on display at the Charlestowne Landing, a national park and living history museum.

ADVENTURE is built with oak double-sawn frames and cedar carvel planking. The interior is very traditional, with an open hold and a few rustic bunks. She has been outfitted with an engine in order to better be able to maneuver out of the small creek that is now her home.The boat was finished in nine months, and upon her completion a crew of six employees delivered her to South Carolina.
