The vessel you see pictured here is the most faithfull seaworthy replica of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s legendary lifeboat anywhere in the world. She was constructed by the International Boat Building Academy of Lowestoft, England to the original Frank Worsley specification, and later retrofitted and equipped for sea by myself, family and friends who also have a connection to the original James Caird. After many years of archival research, an epic expedition to recreate the voyage in 2013, this boat is the culmination of years of learning, the subject of a book currently taking shape. The J.Caird is now up for sale on the open market in the hope that she will find a new home as a museum exhibit, adveture sailing boat, or as an expedition vessel for use overseas. For more information please contact the seller.
