Falls of Clyde is the only surviving iron-hulled four-masted full rigged ship and the only surviving sail-driven oil tanker in the world. She is currently berthed at Honolulu Harbor.
She celebrated her 137th Birthday on December 12, 2015.
The Friends of Falls of Clyde (FoFOC) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the Falls of Clyde. The FoFOC received ownership of the Falls of Clyde from the Bishop Museum on September 30, 2008.
