Our Tall Ships

Seas Your Future is the trading name of the charity Adventure Under Sail which has been operating since 2008. We support the development of young people through Sail Training, introducing them to Maritime Careers, and exposing them to Ocean Science experiences.

In 2012 the charity became owners and operators of Tall Ship Pelican to cater for a growing number of young people joining our programmes.  Since then, we have taken hundreds of young people between the ages of 15 and 30 to sea in our first Tall Ship.

Every one of the students has grown as individuals and many have gone into further education or a work placement and are putting their newly acquired skills into practice.

Since 2016 Our Tall Ship, Pelican of London, has been maintained by Sharpness Shipyard. All aspects of support and maintenance have been provided around the world from minor repairs, major refits to running maintenance.

The breadth and depth of capability of this family firm has enabled Pelican to remain at sea where she provides sail training to young people.

Sharpness Shipyard and Drydock Ltd provides drydocking, repair and general maintenance facilities for vessels of up to 103 metres in length, 14.6 metres beam and 4.7 metres draft.

Situated at the head of the Bristol Channel, Sharpness Shipyard and Drydock Ltd operate and manage one of the few drydocks remaining in the south west of the United Kingdom able to offer the shipowner a competitive repair and maintenance facility.

General cargo ships, passenger vessels, tugs, dredgers, barges, sailing ships, lock gates and caissons, cranes and gantries - all can be accommodated at our Sharpness premises.

The skilled workforce is also available to travel to alternative locations for your convenience. Please contact us for further information. To enquire about any of the services offered by Sharpness Shipyard please CONTACT them direct.
