Mission: 
Maine's First Ship will build and operate a 51'6" reconstruction of the pinnance "Virginia" to promote an understanding and appreciation of Maine's shipbuilding heritage and general history of this area and its people. We will offer a range of educational programs, centered on historic ship design, construction, operation and maintenance skills designed to promote interest and participation in our local history and community. We will engage students of all ages in the "hands on history" reconstruction and operation of "Virginia" on the river and coast of Maine.
