Historical Significance:
The Will Everard was the last of four 280 ton barques with a hull of steel. The ship was used by the Everard family for over 40 years for coastal navigation along the Eastern coast of England, the islands and the English Channel.

A diesel engine was installed in 1951, but in 1967 it was decided to take the “ Will” out of service. After nine years at rest, the “Will” was bought in 1976 by Overseas Container Ltd. Since then the vessel has sailed in European waters, rounding England several times and visiting over 50 ports in Europe- sailing as a living memory of sailing ships from times past.
