New Boat Capital Campaign

MarineLab needs to add a new boat to our marine science education fleet! This boat has to meet US Coast Guard requirements for inspected passenger vessels, be consistent with the other boats in our fleet, and provide a stable, safe platform for marine science education for students grades 5 - 12. We have chosen Ameracat for the builder and we're excited about our new boat!

All told, the boat will cost $250,000 for the 31' center console. We have $100,000 put away in our savings for this new vessel, but we need to raise the rest of the funds! Our boats are center to our education programs. They get the kids OUT of the classroom and INTO the marine environment. In today's virtual world, many kids don't even get outside much - making this type of outdoor experience even more valuable and impactful.

We hope you will help us reach our goal by making a donation today via our Donations page!
