Photo: Matthew Ship Bonavista

At the Matthew Legacy Site in Bonavista in Newfoundland Labrador, Canada you will find a modern day replica of the historic ship known as the Matthew.

A modern day replica of the Matthew is moored along the wharf at the Matthew Legacy Site in Bonavista in Newfoundland Labrador for tourists to come aboard and enjoy the events on this ship.

The Matthew was sailed by John Cabot in 1497 where he apparently landed on June 24 in either Bonavista or St. John's, Newfoundland.Nobody knows exactly where he landed but these two places seem to be the most likely spots through years of research. Nobody has any true facts of where the Matthew sailed or where Cabot actually traveled, mostly the knowledge known is presumed.This ship is 78' long, carrying a beam that is 20'6" and a sail that measures approximately 2,360 square feet.

The ship was built with the intention of what John Cabot's ship would look like as a modern day replica and was constructed for the Cabot 50' anniversary held in Newfoundland in 1997.Visitors can board the Matthew in Bonavista, Newfoundland and enjoy nights filled with special events that take place on the decks of the ship. ... continue below the picture...
