William the Fourth is owned by William the Fourth Inc., a registered charity, and is fully maintained and operated by volunteers as it requires continual maintenance.
To support the long-term operation of the ship we seek the financial support of community members.
The ‘William the Fourth Shipmates’ program allows community sponsorship, with benefits for all members. Contact us for more details.
