Safe Harbor Maritime Academy Summer School

Press Release
Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Twelve teenage boys will be able to experience an aquatic adventure aboard a 114-ft megayacht & perhaps decide for a maritime career.

Boys who are enrolled in the program will spend their summer living aboard the 114-foot yacht  Amazing Grace, where they will learn to pilot the vessel from the Captain's chair, acquire the skills of a deck crew member, become familiar with the engine room, learn to prepare culinary delights in the ship's galley, and collect other skills relevant to life and work on a "super yacht." In addition, weekly adventures will include sailing lessons, scuba diving lessons, fishing aboard our 50-foot Hatteras motor yacht, anchoring off Cumberland Island where horses still roam free, and so much more.

The Amazing Grace boasts luxurious living quarters and state-of-the-art equipment. It was awarded honors as "Best Motoryacht" in the year 2000 by the International Super Yacht Society. The vessel is part of the fleet of boats and yachts owned and operated by Safe Harbor Maritime Academy, which also operates year-round as a home for troubled adolescent boys. Surrounded by the lessons that seamanship and Biblical mentorship provide, boys at Safe Harbor overcome behavioral problems and mature into young men of character and vision. Since 1984, the Academy has provided a safe alternative home environment for struggling teens.

"We're excited to offer what we believe to be the first of its kind summer program for adolescents to live, learn, work, and play aboard a megayacht.  This can be a one of a kind summer experience or it might be the beginning of a career" says Dr. Douglas Smith , Founder of Safe Harbor Maritime Academy.
