Rebuilding Royalist

Rebuilding Royalist

Our ambition is to rebuild Sir James Brooke's famous schooner, Royalist, in Plymouth. We have completed the first phase of project planning and costing.

The Trust continues its work through the generosity of our supporters and is reliant on donations to fund its projects

Royalist played an instrumental role in establishing the Raj of Sarawak, from James Brooke's first visit in 1839 until he became the first White Rajah of Sarawak in 1841. 

The Trust aims to build a replica of Royalist as a platform for experiential learning and outreach programs.  The Trust is in its early stages of project inception. Research, design, project planning and costing have been completed, with further detailed project definition and development of an implementation strategy now being the priorities.

The Trust is embarking upon a fundraising campaign to seek funds for this significant project. For further information about the project or to make a donation go to our Projects and Support our Work
