id=»article-body» class=»row» section=»article-body»> San Diego has a long maritime history. There’s a naval base in the harbor and a marine base just up the road. The incredible USS Midway is nearby and available to tour. So it’s not surprising that the San Diego Maritime Museum celebrates ships of so many different eras.
There are sailing ships from the 1800s, submarines, even a massive ferryboat that’s a beautiful example of turn-of-the-last-century design and ornamentation.
Two replica sailing vessels offer a glimpse of what ships from historic paintings look like in the real world. Even more amazingly, all these ships are in the water, and most regularly sail.
Check out the gallery below for a look at the many ships, inside and www.matcl.com out.
