Step aboard the Sloop Providence, RI’s official flagship

The Rhode Show stepped aboard a historic ship that has earned a spot in the Hollywood spotlight after being featured in blockbuster films.

Sloop Providence is Rhode Island’s state-appointed official flagship and Rhode Island’s official tall ship and sailing ambassador. The Sloop Providence docks in her home port in Newport, but also tours up the coast. The ship was featured in scenes of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Man’s Chest, and Pirates of the Caribbean – At World’s End.

Her name was most recently changed to Pegasus to help share the story of Captain John Newton in a film that’s set to hit theaters soon.

The Sloop Providence is available for weddings, events, and movie sets. For more information contact Owner/Captain Thorpe Leeson at (401) 241-6965 or Mate/Director Nichole Raab at (913) 709-0960.
