We're still collecting donations

On the 29th March 2022 we'd raised £6,595 with 32 supporters in 35 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

If we stretch our initial target then we will use the extra money to start filming content and developing our online platforms. 


In 2017 we launched the Bounty Project (following on from the successful Channel 4 TV programme, Mutiny). Since that time, we have taken 100's of people sailing, visited schools and colleges across the UK, organised exciting adventures for families and made several new TV programmes exploring the history of our local waterways.

We now want to take this a step further and transform our Bounty Centre into a visitor destination where people can explore the history and heritage of Plymouth Sound National Marine Park fusing digital technologies, extended reality (XR) augmented learning and real life exploration.

In 2022, Plymouth Sound will launch the first Smart Sound Connect 5G network and we want to equip our electric heritage vessel, Bounty's End with the capability to broadcast live video 360 degrees and through virtual reality (VR) headsets in Schools.

We see huge opportunity to blend the physical "onboard" experiences, sailing Bounty's End to places within Plymouth Sound with extended reality capability to help transform the experience and learning opportunities. 

The Bounty Centre is 100% powered by solar and in 2017 we installed a regenerative electric motor into our vessel, Bounty's End making her the first commercially operating electric passenger vessel in Plymouth. The Solar array enables all of our infrastructure to operate off grid which is central to our vision for the Bounty Project.

Our mission over the next 5 years is to take people on journeys to explore the rich 200 year history of innovation and exploration through the eyes of Cook, Darwin, Bligh and Fitzroy as we look forward to how the National Marine Park will shape Plymouth's future in the next 100 years.

So we are looking to raise an initial £3000.00 to cover the costs of the equipment needed to bring our Bounty Experiences to a digital audience. This includes 5G ready modems for onboard and on land, a selection of 4K cameras that can shoot 360 degrees, hard drives for data storage, media cards, Oculus Quest 2 headsets and rechargeable power-packs. 

If we stretch our initial target then we will use the extra money to start filming content and developing our online platforms.
