A 137' Grand Banks schooner built in 1925, Roseway has been designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark. Of the more than 4,000 schooners built in Essex, Massachusetts, it's one of only three still sailing today. In 2002, Roseway was donated to World Ocean School, and we gave her an extensive restoration. Last year, Roseway's Phase II Restoration Project was completed. As a 94-year old vessel, continued care and preservation is necessary to maintain her functionality and ability to impact students now and years to come.
Viking Gustafson from Gloucester Marine Railways presented a wonderful video highlighting Roseway getting out of the water at a Woman Mariners event. You can watch the video here!

It's preservation and then hopefully another 92 years. You can't do the programs without the boat, and you can't do the work without the programs.– Roseway Captain Tom Ryan
