Beautiful brig "PHOENIX" at Liverpool

the "PHOENIX" was built in Denmark in 1929, she was built as an evangelical mission schooner, the ship was acquired in 1988, she was converted to a brig in 1996, she is normally based at Charlestown Historic Harbour in Cornwall, she has been used in a few TV series like Frenchman´s Creek, Moll Flanders and Hornblower, she was opened to the public during the Riverside Festival in Liverpool and I have been on board, she looks amazing, very well looked after, the last time I saw her was in Falmouth during the tall ships races in 1998, photos included, 11th September 2011
