Dine Aboard World’s Oldest Sailing Vessel


Moshulu, whose namesake is a Seneca Indian tribal word meaning “fearless,” battled the precarious ocean for almost 90 years before it came to rest on the Delaware River.
The vessel is the world’s largest four-mast sailing ship still afloat, and was recently deemed the ‘world’s toughest restaurant.’
That’s because Moshulu has survived 54 perilous passages around the horn of South America, carried supplies to Central American copper mines, lumber to Australia, grain to Europe and petroleum to Mexico.
It was even confiscated twice, during both World Wars, and featured in “Rocky” and “The Godfather II.”
But now, far from its formidable past, “this lovingly restored, historic ship…is an upscale restaurant that offers diners a chance to eat like a king and wander the decks like a ship captain,” says Donna Schorr of the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation.
Opened in 2003, Moshulu is an AAA Four Diamond Award winner and the “perfect fit for Philadelphia because it reminds people that we’re a port city… It’s a family-friendly destination restaurant that is also is a favorite spot for grown-ups to enjoy a deck side cocktail,” gushes Schorr.
It’s worth a visit the next time you’ve got a flight to Philadelphia.
