Could Pugwash be a Ship Building Centre?

The two cousins who built the Schooner Katie Belle are considering Pugwash as home for a summer sailing business. The Katie Belle attended this year’s Harbourfest and the vessel and the harbour were good for each other.


The idea of making Pugwash the home for a cruise business was floated by Bill Kempt, President of the Pugwash and Area Chamber of Commerce. Kempt pointed out to the schooner owners that they could leave from Pugwash harbour and easily touch PEI and New Brunswick  on the same cruise.


Kempt reports that the Katie Belle builders and operators liked the idea and are giving it serious consideration, along with Mahone Bay on the province’s south shore.


Kempt upped the ante with a suggestion that Pugwash could also become the home of traditional ship building. He urged that more schooners, like the Katie Belle, could be built in the area and sold as tourism ambassadors to communities around the Nova Scotia coast.


If Lunenburg can have the Bluenose, and Pugwash the Katie Belle, then why not the Fundy Queen in Parrsboro, a replica Ship Hector sailing from Pictou, and so on?


The Pugwash Chamber supports the idea and will continue discussion with the operators of the Katie Belle.
