We have launched an appeal to raise £5m to add a new Flagship to our fleet. 

A 24-berth flagship would be the optimum size for larger groups of young people and keep the running costs affordable, and therefore self-sustaining. We envisage a schooner-type vessel, akin to the Sir Winston Churchill and Malcolm Miller that operated when we first started over 60 years ago.

Raising a total of £5m will enable us to:

  • Buy a vessel on the open market
  • Re-engineer the internal layout to take groups of young people
  • Buy the equipment needed to ensure she meets Maritime and Coastguard Agency standards.

It will take the charity to where we have increased voyage capacity, no liabilities, and a bursary fund to draw upon for young people in exceptional hardship.
