  • Help the American Victory Sail Again!

    In commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor, the American Victory has a goal of cruising Tampa Bay once again this December!

    We need your help to raise funds for the dry-docking expenses and repairs to make her sea-worthy for this monumental cruise.

    We have started a crowdfunding campaign and our goal is to raise $250,000 by July 15, 2016. That's right … July 15, 2016. If this world-class Victory Ship could be built in 55 days, then with your help we can raise $250,000 by July 15th.
