Our Mission

The Kalmar Nyckel Foundation is a non-profit educational organization with the mission of preserving and promoting the cultural and maritime heritage of Delaware and the Delaware Valley for the education and enrichment of all. The Foundation is a volunteer-based organization that built, owns and operates the Kalmar Nyckel.


Launched in 1997, Kalmar Nyckel serves as a floating classroom and an inspirational platform that offers people of all ages a variety of sea- and land-based recreational and educational experiences. The Foundation also serves as a catalyst for social and economic development and outreach in and beyond the state of Delaware.

The Tatiana and Gerret Copeland Maritime Center, opened in 2015, offers educational opportunities and a year-round destination for schools as well as the public to experience hands-on learning, museum quality galleries, private event and party space, and workshops for maintaining the ship.
