If you’d like to target your gift to a specific project—be it shipboard maintenance, preservation, education programs, or the final phase of her restoration—please let us know.
As Schooner Adventure embarks on her next journey, sailing as a community educational resource from her berth at Maritime Gloucester, she will provide experiential learning programs to students and adults of all ages. At her core will be programs about the history of schooner fishing from the earliest days, but specifically about Adventure through the years and what she meant to Gloucester and the Cape Ann community.
Although we have completed all work essential for Coast Guard certification to carry passengers, two significant projects still remain.
- The historic captain’s cabin will highlight restoration of the original wood paneling that was installed.
- The design and build-out of the Adventure Learning Center—formerly the Fish Hold.
Funding for Operations is also a priority. Our yearly expenses are approaching $600,000 and will continue to grow as we add new personnel to administer our Education Programming, event planning and general organization administration. With the advent of full sailing season for Adventure, we will be coordinating logistics for thousands of people.
