The Corwith Cramer was the first ship built to the USCG’s regulations for Sailing School Vessels. The Sea Education Association (SEA), working through ASTA, was instrumental in helping the Coast Guard shape these regulations. The Corwith Cramer was built in Bilbao, Spain, and it took the largest floating crane in northern Spain to launch her. She is a safe, stable vessel and a platform for SEA’s educational and oceanographic research missions. Along with the Robert C. Seamans, the Corwith Cramer is owned and operated by the Sea Education Association of Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
