250th Anniversary Celebration
Navesink Maritime Heritage Association to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence
Navesink Maritime Heritage Association plans to have an active involvement in the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. NMHA’s program will focus on three aspects:
Its program will depend on the level of funding that can be secured and, as such, NMHA is investigating projects according to increased levels of funding as follows:
The Navesink Steamboat project is NMHA’s most ambitious project and will require about $2M start up funding, where the other programs can be executed at much lower costs and take advantage of NMHA’s very extensive prior experience in events of this type.
This project will include all aspects of NMHA’s focus. It will revolve around the construction of a 100 foot 145 passenger replica sidewheeler, that will be solar powered. The vessel will be a reflection of the nation’s history and its future. During the celebration it will participate in USA250 events and serve as the traveling exhibit on revolutionary maritime history. After the anniversary celebrations its unique and advanced technology will allow it to become a statewide sustainable technology ambassador and a profitable USCG certified passenger excursion vessel.
NMHA is soliciting partners and financial supporters for these projects.
