Vessel Refit Assistance

We have the most amazing fleet of Sea Mercy vessels and Captains in the world! Each having given up very lucrative charter businesses in order to "sail with a greater purpose" with Sea Mercy. Placing their vessels in harms way in the South Pacific, they sail from island to island through dangerous waters, ferry our volunteers and health ministry staff back and forth, and provide incredible accommodations and meals for each rotation. As you can imagine, this creates a much heavier wear and tear on their vessel and equipment than normal day to day charter operations. With less charter income available, there are planned and emergency needs that can arise that require additional personal funds for their vessel in order for our rotations to operate effectively. This Vessel Refit Assistance page was created to allow people to contribute to help meet those unforeseen needs. As a general rule, Sea Mercy holds these funds until the item is purchased by the FHCC vessel and vessels must be currently operating in Sea Mercy's service for them to qualify for the gift.

Below is a list of current "Refit Assistance" needs by vessel:
