Legacy Moves to Miami

February 27, 2002
Windjammer Barefoot Cruises has done that rare thing in the post-September 11 era: It’s kept a low profile. But the company’s recent announcement -- that it’s flagship Legacy will sail out of Miami this summer -- represents a radical departure for the company, which for 20 years has pretty exclusively kept its ships based in Caribbean ports.

Legacy, part of Windjammer’s all-but-one ship fleet of sailing vessels, is the line’s largest, carrying 122 passengers. Legacy’s Miami-based itineraries, which will flexibly offer a variety of lengths, 4, 5 and 8 day voyages, will focus on the Bahamas. And those passengers yawning about the been-there-done-that Bahamas -- who have never tried the offbeat, ultra casual and genuinely unique Windjammer experience -- known for calling in at off-track islands, some of which don’t even have a port, not to mention a city full of duty free shops, may want to try a new adventure.

Windjammer was launched in 1947 and consists of a fleet of six that, besides Legacy, features the sailing vessels Flying Cloud, Legacy, Mandalay, Polynesia, and Yankee Clipper. It also owns and operates the M/V Amazing Grace, the company’s only motor vessel, which serves as both a freighter -- carrying supplies to its other ships -- and offering passengers a freighter-style sailing experience. Itineraries focus on the Bahamas, South America and the Caribbean.
