OLIVER HAZARD PERRY PROJECT –  The Sailing Training Tall Ship of Rhode island ~

NorEast Marine Systems is happy to be a big part of this refit.  We started the design & engineering process back in 2012 and work began in the Spring of 2013.  Almost 2 years later and so much progress has been made refurbishing the Oliver Hazard Perry with all new marine systems.

Specifications of the Ship:

  • 200ft: Largest civilian Sailing School Vessel in the US
  • 7 miles of rope, 160 belaying pins, 20 sails, 14,000 sq ft of sail
  • Ocean-going full-rigged ship: The first to be built in the US in over 100 years
  • Sailing School Vessel: Carries no passengers, all who sail aboard are crew and take active roles in sailing the ship safely
  • Meets and exceeds all USCG and ABS safety requirements for a ship of her size
