Topsail Schooner Amistad is a Baltimore Clipper designed 129-foot schooner built in 2000. She carries 12 students and serves a variety of Ocean Classroom Foundation programs in 2013.

Since her launch on March 25, 2000, Freedom Schooner Amistad has worked with international agencies and organizations in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Europe and West Africa in recognition and commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the Atlantic slave trade in the former British Empire (1807) and the United States (1808).
