Ashronia Christian Cadet and Mission Ship Association is to have built in Fremantle. Western Australia a 200ft Barquentine called “The Sovereign of the Seas”. This Scandinavian design of 396 tons will be a replica of the “Barden”.
As a Cargo-Cadet-Training Ship our “Mercy-Aid vessel” will carry humanitarian Aid world wide, and be a support standby vessel in National Emergencies. Many organizations have expressed their concern that as with the Indonesian Tsunami they could not secure sea transport to the effected coastal areas to off-load vital equipment or supplies as no shipping was available. You can get involved by making an enquiry.
