• Our history

  • Salem shipping partners Aaron Waite (1742-1830) and Jerathmiel Peirce (1747-1827), owners of the original Friendship, conducted business for almost 50 years from Salem and Beverly, Massachusetts. Their ships visited ports around the world, from the West Indies to Canton and Archangel, Russia, to Isle de France in the Indian Ocean.
