Donate to our Vessel Restoration Campaign

We are asking for your support of the Phyllis A in her hour of need.
At 93 years old, the Phyllis A is Gloucester’s oldest former fishing vessel. It is vital that the Campaign reach its goal of $500,000 in order to save this beautiful vessel. With hard work and funding, the Phyllis A will be able to take her story, as an ambassador of Gloucester, to other events in the northeast area. Adding her own chapter to the grace and adventure of Gloucester’s schooners and dory-men. That’s the goal. $500,000 to get a 93-year-old, historic, wooden vessel back in the water and in shape for visitors! Once that is complete, we will move one to the next phase! But that’s for another day.
