120-year old Barkentine Gazela in Philadelphia


The Ship Guild maintains and operates two historic vessels, a 1902 tugboat (Jupiter) and a tall ship (Gazela). Both ships need skilled maintenance for their diesel engines, generators, electrical systems (120-volt DC on tug), sanitary systems, and general maintenance. The work is primarily done by volunteers, amongst which are people like you.

If you are interested in sailing on either vessel, you must attend mandatory training sessions.
