North Sea Maritime Center
The mission of the North Sea Maritime Center,
a 501(c)3 organization, at the Historic Tupper Boathouse
is to preserve Southampton's maritime heritage through
educational and recreational programs that increase the
awareness and the relevance of historical and
contemporary marine activities.

Center at the Historic Tupper Boathouse will fulfill the
mission by establishing the following programs and
facilities to benefit our community.
A wooden boat building facility.
A Maritime Museum focusing on the North Sea, Southampton's first port.
Classes to teach local maritime history, water navigation, sailing, boating safety, basic boat maintenance, and other marine-related programs and activities.
An aquaculture education facility.
A facility where the Southampton schools and other educational institutions can have field experiences and host marine-related programs, events, and workshops
