To Attend:

On September 21st the crew of the Apollonia will be hosting a FREE community gathering at the Basilica in Hudson, NY. We’ll be presenting our vision for how the Apollonia will bring about positive change to the Hudson River, and reaching out to our community, as well as potential partners. Food generously provided by Little Deb’s! Please come and share your ideas and learn about ours!

Apollonia is a 64-foot steel-hulled schooner built in Baltimore MD in 1946. She’s designed to move efficiently through the water and built with rugged ¼” thick steel plating making her ideal for what we’re trying to do. Powered by a traditional gaff-rig sail plan designed by the naval architect J Murray Watts, with a 15’ beam, she’s ready to be a stout workboat that’s capable of carrying 20,000 lbs of cargo. The powerful sail plan will carry her along in almost any breeze.  Learn more about the Apollonia and the vision for future merchant vessels.
