For over 100 years, Massachusetts Maritime Academy has been preparing women and men for exciting and rewarding careers on land and sea. As the nation's finest co-ed maritime college, MMA challenges students to succeed by balancing a unique regimented lifestyle with a typical four-year college environment. As a member of the cadet corps you will live, study, sail, work and play in an atmosphere that encourages you to be your best.
To go along with the Offshore Sailing team, Massachusetts Maritime Academy enters some races in the Cruising fleet. RED SKY and MARITA are among several cruising boats that have done many prestigious events such as Figawi and the Marion to Bermuda Race. We have a wide variety of boats that are in the cruising class from Hinckley’s to Jon Meri on the sailing side and Hatteras, Tiara and Huckin’s on the power side. We train the cadets the necessary skills on these vessels to become more adept in boat handling, seamanship and team work. These vessels are also engaged in cruising excursions that many cadets and staff partake in during the year.
