About the event
The Mayflower Shallop II is a historic reproduction of the small sailing and rowing boat that the pilgrims would have used to explore the coastline of the new world. This vessel was originally built in 1952 and has just completed an extensive restoration at Lowell's Boat Shop.
The Mayflower Shallop II will be stopping at Maritime Gloucester on its way to Plymouth Harbor.
This event will include two days of open-to-the-public dockside viewing and demonstrations by the crew and Captain Whit Perry, Captain of the Mayflower II. Come see history unfold as you learn about the restoration, the skills required for sailing, the details of the Fuller Shallop (and what is a Shallop, anyway?), and their plans for the future.
Plimoth Patuxet Museum staff will be on hand in their pop-up booth to answer questions, share information, and sell merchandise. Get your piece of history today!
