Welcome to the Cornish Maritime Trust

We exist to 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 work with organisations in Cornwall and enjoy the support of many people and organisations across the country.

Please have a look around our site, contact us if you want to know more, and support us by joining the Trust!
