Photograph of the Elizabeth II, a small sailing ship based on Elizabethan shipbuilding designs.

Sizes available: 1024×768 | 450×338 | 300×225

The Elizabeth II is a reconstructed sailing vessel based on Elizabethan shipbuilding designs. It is named after one of the ships that sailed with Sir Walter Raleigh from England to the New World in 1587. The Elizabeth II, however, is a composite design, and not a replica of that ship. Elizabeth II was presented to North Carolina as a historic site in 1984, and is now at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo.
