Past Projects

Corinthian Sloop


Launched: Summer 2017

Designed by Philadelphian Thomas D. Bowes, Naval Architect, and built in Holland in 1951. One of eight built for the Corinthian Yacht Club of Essington, PA, for competitive sailing on the Delaware River. It is one of three still in existence. Construction was Mahogany on White Oak frames. It was restored for use in the water in hopes of revitalizing interest in the fleet. 

 

 

Cruiser Olympia Tables & Benches


Commenced: Fall 2016
Finished: Winter 2016

Period-authentic mess tables and benches were replicated for Cruiser Olympia. These benches closely match the original mess tables that would have been present on board during the ship's active service and serve to interpret the lives of the regular sailors aboard. These are also used for visitor convenience and Museum programming, which allow for better functionality of the ship in the modern world and a better sensory experience for visitors.
