She began her work as a sail training vessel in 1953, and over fifty years later, 9,000 teens and adults have learned traditional seamanship skills while sailing local and distant waters. Brilliant's excellent condition is a testament to the designers and skilled craftsmen who built her to the highest standards at the Nevins yard in 1932, and to the careful maintenance she received ever since. Originally built for offshore cruising, Brilliant has proven herself in many races and is the platform for the nation's oldest sail education program.
