Vic­tory Chimes, the only known sur­viv­ing ex­am­ple of a Ch­e­sa­peake Ram schooner, holds a USCG Cer­tifi­cate of In­spec­tion for 50 pas­sen­gers and has been sail­ing the Maine coast for char­ter since 1990. The 132-foot, three-mas­ter has 21 pas­sen­ger cab­ins and is of­fered for sale at $650,000. Hon­ored by the Na­tional Park Ser­vice as a “Na­tional His- toric Land­mark” and fea­tured on the State of Maine quar­ter, she was once owned by Domino’s Pizza, whose owner com­pletely re­stored her and is cred­ited with sav­ing the ves­sel in the late 1980s. The ship has a beau­ti­ful full gal­ley, but sur­pris­ingly, no ded­i­cated pizza oven.
