Replace the Empire State VI

Help us replace the Empire State VI


Take action now: Send another letter of support for the NSMV to Congress.


Before he left office, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act. The act directs the secretary of transportation to complete the design of the new training ship and authorizes the secretary to enter into a contract for construction.

Once again, we will ask for your continued support and help. This year, we will launch a major advocacy campaign to seek support from the new administration and Congress for funding for construction of the new ship.

We will keep you updated. In the meantime, please know how much your willingness to help means to us as a college and as a Maritime community.
