Unicorn is a historic topsail schooner with all the atmosphere and charm of a traditional Tallship yet offering modern comforts and conveniences. HMS Rose Cabin is our largest stateroom.
Tallship Unicorn is a steel hull, topsail schooner whose roots go back to the Second World War. She was built out of scrapped German u-boat steel and has sailed around the world and back in her new life. She has been refit with modern conveniences including a private head in each cabin with electric marine toilet, shower and lavatory. Our cabins and common spaces are maple with teak decks and our weather decks are Iroko and white oak.
Guests have access to the main passageway wet bar and refrigerator, the galley, mess deck and the weather decks. Please note that we do not have handicap accessible accommodations and access to all cabins requires the climbing of stairs.
- Unicorn is a working vessel and as such, for the safety of our guests and crew, and in compliance with applicable law, this is a drug free vessel.
-Unless specifically authorized by the captain and accompanied by a crew member, guest access to machinery spaces, helm, wheelhouse, rigging and captain's quarters is prohibited.
-Quiet hours 23:00-08:00.
I am a retired veteran of the United States Coast Guard fulfilling a lifelong dream with my wife of operating our own Tallship. We live onboard with our cat Fiddles while in Hampton Roads Virginia and enjoy regular visits to the areas historical sights and living history venues. We enjoy life at sea and regularly spend our evenings listening to the Irish Rovers while taking in the sunset. We are currently conducting a refit and hope to open our calendar again this fall once we've completed the refit. In the meantime, you can check out our progress follow us on Instagram and other apps @TallShipUnicorn. We hope to host you soon!
