HM Bark Endeavour of James Cook
This replica of HM Bark Endeavour, the ship of James Cook on his trips
around the world in the 1760s and 1770s, was built by the Australian HM
Bark Endeavour Foundation. She was launched in Fremantle, Australia on 9
December 1993. From October 1996 to March 1997 she sailed from Fremantle
to London. There is a very fine book about this trip: Richard Polden,
ENDEAVOUR, a Photographic Journey, Fremantle Arts Centre Press 1998,
The replica was built to the same specifications as the original
historic ship. Where differences exist they are to meet modern safety
standards and to ensure that the vessel will have a life as long as
possible. More information on the ship, the foundation and chances to
join the crew on HMB Endeavour for voyages you find on the foundation's
In Wikipedia there is a fine report on the history of
HM Bark Endeavour, too.
