WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL ALMA DOEPEL WEBSITE
The Alma Doepel is a three masted topsail schooner,
Australian built and operated, with more than a hundred years of
history behind her, and with more history yet to be written.

Restoration Wish List
We urgently need a heavy duty (1200W) mains-powered Reciprocating Saw
("Sabre saw"). This is used for cutting steel and iron bolts and nails as we
remove old fastenings from the hull so they can be replaced.
Wish Granted! Ex-trainee, voyager, crew and committed Alma supporter Mike Morris and family have seized the moment and donated a Metabo 1200 sabre
saw, which is now in use on board the ship.
Many thanks for your continuingand timely support, Mike.

Guided Tours and BBQs
The monthly BBQs have been replaced with guided tours and BBQs for groups and special events.
A great activity for your organisation or a group of friends, we can offer a guided tour of Alma's shed and the ship.
View the many activities involved in the restoration of a 110 year old Australian built sailing ship.
We can include a sausage sizzle, wine, tea, coffee and soft drink at Docklands for around $10 per person.
