Welcome to the Cornish Maritime Trust

We preserve Cornwall's maritime heritage by maintaining and sailing working vessels from the days of sail. We work to educate people about our maritime heritage, to train people in the skills associated with sailing, restoration and maintenance, and to share our enjoyment of sailing our incredible boats.

We own and operate three historic working boats: Barnabas, Soft Wing and Ellen.

Thank you to our supporters! We work with organisations in Cornwall and enjoy the support of many people and organisations across the country.
