About The Spirit of South Carolina

The Spirit of South Carolina, completed in 2007, is a two-masted pilot schooner modeled after the Frances Elizabeth, a vessel that was originally built by Samuel J. Pregnall & Bros. Shipyard in Charleston in 1879. The ship is dedicated to offering a unique educational platform for the youth of the Palmetto State. The hands-on programs offered aboard are designed to challenge and engage students while promoting responsibility, teamwork, and stewardship for both their community and their environment. Real estate developer Mike Bennett and luxury car dealership owner Tommy Baker, member of The Citadel Class 1972 and namesake of the college’s Tommy and Victoria Baker School of Business, saved the ship by purchasing it at foreclosure auction, keeping it in its home waters. The two underwrote an extensive refit to ensure that the ship would be seaworthy for U.S. Coast Guard inspection, finally donating the ship to the nonprofit Spirit of South Carolina, Inc., to ensure that it will continue its mission of experiential education. For additional information about the Spirit of South Carolina, visit spiritofsc.org and follow the ship on social media, on Facebook and on Instagram.
