Brief history of The Modern Matthew


The Matthew that lives in Bristol today is a modern reconstruction of the original Matthew that John Cabot sailed to Newfoundland in 1497. She was designed by specialist ship architect Colin Mudie, who led a team of 12 local shipwrights.

The ship was built between 1994-1996 on Redcliffe Quay, in preparation for the 1997 voyage to celebrate the 500th anniversary of John Cabots famous journey to Newfoundland and back. A heritage attraction, she has enjoyed many voyages, featured in a number of films and television programmes and is welcomed at maritime festivals across Europe.


The Matthew is located on Princes Wharf, Wapping Road, Bristol BS1 4RN
