Dunkirk 2025 - We need YOU!

We need YOUR help to get Massey Shaw to Dunkirk in 2025 alongside our fellow Dunkirk Little Ships.

The challenge
Both of our main engines require extensive repairs and rebuilding. Being nearly 90 years old we require custom parts to be made and specialist knowledge and testing to get everything running again.


Seeing & Learning

Education is at the core of the Massey Shaw Education Trust and we are proud to have such a unique resource to display and educate people in the history of the vessel and London’s maritime history.

We can cater for individual visits and groups on board or we can bring the history to you with our unique drama performances!
