“Bob Douglas is a design genius, a savant.”

MASTER, PICTON CASTLE, CAPTAIN UNLIMITED

 

Due to the inherent risk in ocean voyaging, a safe ship is paramount for the FUEL Program. Our ship must also carry 30 students, be U.S. Coast Guard certified, and preserve the Cape and Islands’ maritime heritage. After searching extensively for a ship that meets these criteria we know that building a new ship will make our program safer and be less expensive.
