More Information


Dear Alumni, Faculty, Staff, Students, Parents, and Friends of Massachusetts Maritime,

Since our inception, the State Maritime Academies (SMAs) have used old merchant ships or surplus Navy ships that were converted for use as training ships. As Coast Guard and International regulations/requirements escalate and the complexity of operating in the marine environment intensifies, we need to provide new, modern training platforms for the mariners who will carry the critical cargos to our ports and to our servicemen and women overseas. As you may be aware, the six State Maritime Academies Presidents have spent considerable time over the past year reaching out to our elected officials in Washington D.C. for Congressional support to fund the replacement of our aging training ships with a new class of common hull ships. The new ships will be called National Security Multi-mission Vessels (NSMVs) and will support both mariner training at the state academies and be able to respond to critical missions such as disaster relief and humanitarian assistance. As t he T. S. Kennedy is 47 years old, the second oldest of the training ships, it is imperative that we support this initiative. 

Each of the SMA Presidents is requesting that their alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents, benefactors and industry partners ask their members of Congress to support construction of these vessels by writing them a letter to support this action through their local Representative and also Senator.

Find your Senator:

Find your Congress Person:

This letter comes at a crucial time. The Administration is crafting their new budget right now and if we don't get in, the chances for success become very dim. I hope everyone will take just five minutes of their time to read the letter and send it to their Representative and to their Senators. If you can send a personal email to them, or even a handwritten note, that would be even better!

Thank you for your help and your advocacy at this critical time.

Rick Gurnon, President
