The Saint Augustine Maritime Heritage Foundation envisions being a resource for inspiring community, business, corporate and government participation in organizing and supporting maritime projects, activities and events that focus on and showcase our historic port. Initially, we are working to insure the success and legacy of St. Augustine’s 450th Commemoration from an historic maritime perspective.
Our mission, in addition to support of the St. Augustine 450th Commemoration, is to promote an understanding and awareness of the nation’s oldest port, its maritime heritage and to support greater connectivity and utilization of this magnificent asset. An essential aspect of this activity is the recognition and promotion of the significance of the Hispanic Cultural Heritage as an essential part of the story of America.
The signature event that will showcase life and activity in 16th Century St. Augustine is the construction of a 16th century Astillero (Boat Yard) that will house a working replica of a utility work boat called a Chalupa .
