About Freedom Sailing International
Based in New Orleans, LA, Freedom Sailing International will design, build and operate a tall ship for people with disabilities, based on the goals of Inclusive Design, to enable those with disabilities to sail alongside their able-bodied family and friends, spreading awareness and goodwill.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 2013, there are over 70 million people with disabilities in the U.S., as well as thousands of wounded American soldiers. Our goal is to accommodate all people including the elderly and people with disabilities, along with their family and friends, to explore the high seas. New Orleans is a major port city, and the perfect location to launch Freedom Sailing International. This innovative concept will introduce shipbuilding and inclusive design to the world. The time is now for America to spread goodwill globally and become a strong voice in the advancement of people with disabilities.
