Educational Tall Ship SF Bay

Matthew Turner build site by the Bay Model in Sausalito

Educational Tall Ship is constructing a traditional wooden tall ship, Matthew Turner, which will serve as an experiential learning platform for Bay Area youth. The vessel, when complete, will be run and operated by our partner, Call of the Sea, who has been successfully operating on-the-water programs since 1984. The Matthew Turner, in the hands of Call of the Sea, will expand their reach from 5,000 to over 17,000 kids each year. 

We are currently making frames! This process will continue for close to two months. The next step will be to complete the centerline structure which includes stem (bow), ballast keel, horn timber, dead wood and transom frames. Tying all this together will be bronze plating and large bronze bolting.

We are at 65% of our goal. Please help us build the Matthew Turner by making a donation today! Everything helps. And, don't forget to visit us if you are in the area. Our shipyard is open to the public and we are always happy to have visitors. Bookmark our site and check back often as we have lots going on and will update our site regularly. You can also check out  our live video stream of the shipyard!
