The Peacemaker was built on a riverbank in southern Brazil by an Italian family of boat builders, using traditional methods and the finest tropical hardwoods. The ship was first launched in 1989 as the Avany, a name chosen by her designer and original owner, Frank Walker, a Brazilian industrialist.
We were fortunate enough to be graced with a visit from the Peacemaker to our port in Pensacola. And I was fortunate enough to be able to tour the boat at my leisure, taking photos.
