Tall Ships 2017 was an Immense Success!

Marine Operations at UMass Boston would like to thank each and every one of you that came out with us to watch the return of these majestic ships berthed in several grand locations in Boston Harbor. As well as those of you who were lucky enough to have come out on our vessel the M/V Columbia Point on that Saturday June 17, 2017 to view the first Parade of Sail to entertain the city of Boston in over 17 years! We are proud to announce we took over 200 people out to see the return of the Tall Ships last month, even selling out the last two public cruises. Check out our announcements page for more photos of the event!
