The Khersones or Chersones (Ukrainian: Херсонес) is a Ukrainian three-mast tall ship, a full rigged ship. It was built in 1989 in Gdańsk Shipyard, Poland, in a series of six sister ships (among which also the Mir), after the designs of Zygmunt Choreń. The ship is named after the city of Kherson on the North coast of the Black Sea.
Today Khersones is a training ship for the Kerch Marine Technological Institute. Like many Eastern European training ships she also takes on board paying passengers. She partakes in many windjammer regattas.
