As we chart a course towards this extraordinary vessel's revitalization, you can show your support for our nation's greatest and sole-surviving ocean liner by ordering the Conservancy's newest, limited-edition t-shirt!
Now available: limited-edition SS United States t-shirt.
This original design by European ChapterChair Mario Alvarez-Garcillán features the vessel’s primary transatlantic ports of call: New York, Le Havre, Southampton and Bremerhaven. The central image was inspired by a fabric featured in First Class staterooms aboard the ship, originally designed by prolific female interior designers Anne Urquhart and Dorothy Marckwald.
Color coordination was thoroughly studied aboard the SS United States, and colors and patterns were chosen by Urquhart and Marckwald to achieve a bright, ultra-modern look, moving away from the ornate styles of older liners.
Look familiar? The Conservancy's newest t-shirt was inspired by this pattern in the Big U's staterooms, designed by SS United States interior designers Anne Urquhart and Dorothy Marckwald.
The SS United Conservancy is seeking your support to help cover the ship’s basic expenses for the remainder of the year as redevelopment plans advance. This majestic “Lady in Waiting” offers a remarkable preservation and redevelopment opportunity: With over 500,000 square feet of unique space, the ship is ready for conversion into a spectacular historic, waterfront destination.
The Conservancy is also hard at work building an extraordinary collection of art, artifacts and historical documents from America’s Flagship to be displayed in our future ship-board museum. Your support will enable us to continue building and curating our collections, while also developing exciting new digital exhibitions.
The SS United States Conservancy, a national non-profit organization, is committed to saving America’s Flagship, the SS United States. The Conservancy raises public awareness and financial resources for the maintenance, restoration and ultimate reuse of this iconic vessel and works to ensure that the fastest ocean liner ever to cross the Atlantic will remain an inspiration for generations to come.
