William H. Albury

The William H. Albury is one of the most recognized sailing vessels to come from Man-O-War Cay, although the namesake was instrumental in the production of several fine boats. She is a 70’ schooner built in the 1960’s. Originally named Esperanza, meaning, Hope, she has since been renamed after her builder. She has participated in several Tall Ship events on the Eastern Sea Board and is now home in the Eastern Harbour of Man-O-War Cay.


  • The William H. under construction early 1960’s. Building crew to include Uncle Will and Kenneth Thompson.
