Schooner Adventure

Schooner Adventure (d.b.a. The Gloucester Adventure) is a 501(c)(3) maritime historic preservation and educational organization. They are the proud stewards of the 122-foot, 1926 Schooner Adventure, one of the last surviving Grand Banks dory-fishing schooners. Adventure is a national treasure that has, following an extensive, two decade-long, nearly $6 million restoration to ensure her preservation, resumed active sailing as an icon of the American fisheries and as a floating classroom for maritime history and environmental education programs. Adventure is important not only to Gloucester, but also to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and all of America. In 1994 Adventure was awarded National Historic Landmark status in recognition of the significant role of the vessel in the nation’s history. This is an exciting new chapter for Schooner Adventure. With an extensive historic restoration of the vessel now complete, the organization is poised to launch its next chapter, focused on a robust offering of programs and educational opportunities. The Executive Director is responsible for overall management of Schooner Adventure, working together with the Board of Directors to further the mission pertaining to preservation and operation of the vessel and position Adventure as a focal point for education focused on themes of fisheries, maritime history and the ocean environment. The Board is seeking a dynamic and experienced Executive Director to maintain Schooner Adventure’s successes, drive program development and growth, enhance community awareness of the mission, programs, and activities, and develop diversified revenue streams. This unique opportunity will allow the new Executive Director to advance the mission of this historic organization while strategizing for the future.
