Home > Clubs & Community > Shipshape Scotland Hub

The Scottish Fisheries Museum is proud to work in partnership with National Historic Ships UK (NHSUK) to act as Shipshape Network Hub for Scotland. Hubs are ambassadors that aim to bring businesses and individual vessel projects together. As a Hub the museum carries out Network-related projects, supports the sector and helps attract funds, giving advice to Network members.

The Shipshape Network brings together historic vessel owners, skilled craftsmen, businesses, heritage organisations, training bodies and all those with an interest in Britain’s maritime heritage and ship preservation. The Shipshape Network is about making contacts and forging partnerships so that results can be achieved which would not be possible on an individual basis.

Shipshape Scotland

Shipshape Scotland brings together traditional skills, services and facilities across its 32 council areas. It acts as a focal point connecting vessels, projects, organisations and craftsmen including: the Scottish Maritime Museum at Irvine and Dumbarton; the Scottish Fisheries Museum at Anstruther; RRS Discovery at Dundee; the Tall Ship Glenlee and the Galgael Trust in Glasgow; the Orkney Historic Boat Society; and a range of other craft from the National Register of Historic Vessels.
