Tall Ship Pelican Up For Sale


Published at 8:55am 3rd May 2012.

The race is on to find a buyer for a Weymouth Tall Ship.

The Pelican has been used as a training vessel by more than 500 young people since its maiden voyage in 2007.

It's hoped the new buyers will continue to support the charity- Adventure Under Sail Limited.

For the moment it's very much 'business as usual'.

Do you have a spare £2.45m? The receivers, Smith and Williamson are hoping that this summer's Olympic sailing will bring in an interested buyer.
