Whitstable Maritime is a Private Company Limited by Guarantee registered in April 2014. In August 2015 it was recognised by the Department for Communities and Local Government as the lead body for a Coastal Communities Team. All members of this not-for-profit Company are volunteers.

Whitstable Maritime aims to help residents, visitors, schoolchildren and students enjoy exploring the town's coastal connections - past, present and future - at a visitors centre, along the foreshore and afloat.

By working in partnership with other organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors we hope by 2018 to have:

  • restored an historic 42-foot Whitstable Oyster Yawl;

  • created a Maritime Discovery Centre;

  • established an annual Maritime Festival;

  • designed coastal trails from Whitstable to Faversham;

  • incorporated new and alternative technologies; and

  • added value to the local economy
