The Viola was a small whaling vessel built in 1910 at the end of the sailing-whaling era in America. Built in Essex, Massachusetts, she was classified as a Hermaphrodite Brig because she was square rigged on the first mast and fore-and-aft rigged on the second. She sailed out of Portland, Maine and was lost at sea, with all hands, in 1917. Viola represents the end of a grand era in American history. Plans made available by the Whaling Museum of New Bedford, Massachusetts.
