Steamship Freshspring Society

Registered Charity Number: 1151907

Our primary vision is to preserve and ensure future sustainability for SS Freshspring as a working example of 19th and 20th century marine technology for the benefit of the public. To attract young people and provide engineering and seafaring education facilities to encourage them to consider a career in engineering and to provide facilities to teach basic skills in the management of a historic vessel and steam machinery.

This exciting project aims to preserve and bring back to steaming condition an extremely valuable and unique steamship. The SS Freshspring will be utilised in a sustainable way, delivering a range of services from a scheduled cruise programme to providing a unique insight into the small British steam coaster, which provided a major transport link around the coast of Britain and beyond. The ship will become a valuable educational resource for all people with a particular emphasis on educating young people. The ship will be a living museum demonstrating life at sea between the wars and will be the only operational small coasting steam cargo ship in the world.

Donations are welcomed to help with the task of stabilising the ship and provide match-funding for an upcoming HLF bid
