Transformational Gifts, Unforgettable Experiences, and Objects to Behold in Support of Mayflower II
It was the Voyage that Made a Nation® and changed the world. The most famous émigrés in recorded history arrived aboard the Mayflower in 1620. With them came the ideas of self-government, freedom of religion and an entrepreneurial spirit. That history is the focus of Mayflower II’s educational mission. Plimoth Patuxet relies on the generosity of individuals like you to keep that mission alive.

Mayflower II Tribute Bell ($2,020)
Going, Going, Gong! Own a Piece of Mayflower II History!
Fewer than 16 of these bells are still available. Created by the world-renowned bell makers, The Verdin Company, each bell is made from the same bronze as the ship’s bell cast in 2019 and installed on the ship. The tribute bells feature the same mayflower design as the ship’s bell.
The Shallop Sail ($25,000)
Join the Captain of Mayflower II, Whit Perry, for an evening tour of Plymouth Harbor in the newly restored Fuller Shallop. In 1620, the Mayflower was anchored offshore and the Pilgrims boarded the shallop for the last leg of their journey to America. After your shallop adventure, a delicious New England lobster dinner will be served dockside along with refreshing cocktails after enjoying a private tour of Mayflower II.
The Shallop Sail serves a group of up to 6 people. Date to be mutually agreed. Weather dependent, so alternate dates will be available if needed.
The Mayflower Adventure ($150,000)
Sail the Nation’s most beloved Tall Ship! Plimoth Patuxet has charted a course for you and up to twenty-five friends or family members to sail aboard Mayflower II’s historic decks out on beautiful Cape Cod Bay. On a date to be agreed with Mayflower II Captain Whit Perry, you’ll board the ship in Plymouth Harbor. After being towed out of the harbor the crew will hoist the sails and catch the breeze. This is a rare opportunity and thrilling maritime adventure that only a handful of people have experienced—sailing on historic Mayflower II!
In addition to the sail, you will receive the following commemorative items:
