Help Resurrect Grand Lady - One of Americas Great Historic Treasures.

The 1919 Trumpy, Grand Lady, is currently being considered by the National Maritime Historical Society (NMHS) for their support and endorsement.  If NMHS becomes involved in this cause they would work diligently to bring attention to the public eye so that funds can be raised for this historic boat's preservation. 

This antique craft is one of Americas great historic treasures.  Grand Lady was designed by Americas highly respected boat builder, John Trumpy Sr, and built in Camden, NJ by the Mathis Yacht Building Co.  Grand Lady was one of the very first vessels built for navigation of the highly anticipated Intracoastal Waterway and was launched, in 1919, the same year the Intracoastal waterway was authorized by the United States congress.

A total of 450 Trumpys were built and Trumpy eventually earned the long standing reputation of building Americas finest vessels.  Today, it is estimated that there are less than 60 of these gems left. Grand Lady is one of the very oldest of these surviving Trumpys and she is one of only two of the small Trumpys that are in existence today.

The National Maritime Historical Society's mission is to preserve and perpetuate the maritime history of the United States.  They are a proven leader in gaining national attention for the preservation of the rapidly dwindling number of historic ships and their involvement in Grand Lady would help secure her future as an American treasure.

Please let NMHS know that you care and want to see Grand Lady celebrate her 100th birthday.
