The 39th Voyage

The Charles W. Morgan, America's oldest surviving merchant vessel, will take her 38th voyage this summer — and her first in more than 93 years — following a $10 million, five-year renovation. The Morgan will visit historic ports of call throughout New England, including New London, Newport, New Bedford and Boston.
