In 2016, we began a major refit of the Unicorn. The project began with replacement of the fire and gray water pumps, then moved on to update the forepeak, installation of an elevated foredeck and the replacement of the planking on the weatherdecks and housetops.
Remaining on the task list are the finishing of the weather decks, prep, prime and paint freshwater tanks, design and installation of a chillwater a/c system with air handlers in all manned spaces, installation of diesel heat system, redesign of black water system, installation of new custom refer/freezer unit in the galley, elevation of the fo’c’sle bulwarks, remodel of wheelhouse, reballast, inspection and maintenance of rigging and tackle, prep, prime and paint superstructure, sand and varnish rails, and finally a haul out in 2020 for hull, through hull and packing maintenance, prime and anti fouling coating.
Unicorn will once again welcome guests dockside, with a opening of our cabin calendars on Airbnb, currently scheduled for June of 2020. We look forward to hosting you on your visit to the Historic Triangle and the Tidewater area of Virginia! Please check back often and follow us @TallShipUnicorn on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
