 New stretch target

There is no upper limit to what can be spent on 'Ross Revenge'. Our priority is very urgent hull and deck work to secure her future. With extra funding we would be able to refurbish the ship further. We would like to see her engines run again and restore her to her former glory. We also plan to create an interactive visitor centre in the forepeak to show the fascinating broadcasting and fishing history of the vessel to schools, groups and individuals.

The Cause


‘Ross Revenge' is in urgent need of dry docking, where surveys and structural repairs can be carried out. Our prize draws supplement our fundraising appeal to achieve our goal of securing the future of our historic ship for generations to come. The former pirate radio ship 'Ross Revenge' is still regularly broadcasting at sea today and more than 1,200 visitors tour the ship each year. The vessel is an important part of both deep sea fishing and broadcasting history. To lose her would be a tragedy.
