About the American Victory Ship

The SS American Victory was launched during WWII, continued her service through Korea and Vietnam, and still serves today. At her home berth in the Port of Tampa, the American Victory Ship is dedicated to community service, open everyday to the public for tours, and hosts private events and youth educational programs throughout the year. Join us in support of this 501c3 nonprofit organization as the ship prepares to steam again!
