Our goal is to provide prospective students and their families as many opportunities to visit Northeast Maritime Institute as possible. Northeast Maritime Institute acquired the 32 Washington Street building in Fairhaven, Massachusetts back in 2000 and has renovated the space to create a beautiful, fully functional facility that is famous for being a place of worship to the first Japanese Diplomat Manjiro Nakahama. It includes three full-service classrooms, two bridge simulators, liquid cargo handling simulators, a Radar and ARPA simulation classroom, gym, and a galley style break area.
The Joshua Slocum Library at Northeast Maritime Institute holds thousands of titles in print books, magazines, videos, trade journals, and online journals. The fiction and non-fiction works are cataloged in our searchable database and available to be checked out. Our materials can provide information for the recreational boater, nautical student, or professional mariner. NMI also has a professional librarian on staff to assist students in all of their information and resource needs.

Marina At Slocum Cove
Named in honor of Joshua Slocum, the legendary tall ship cargo captain, this marina will be an invaluable asset to our students who want to learn about marina maintenance and management. NMI also offers student housing at the marina.
The Marina at Slocum Cove was named after the legendary tall ship captain, Joshua Slocum, who was the first individual to circumnavigate the world alone on a solo voyage that left within one hundred meters from the marina, in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. This waterfront facility will host all NMI vessels for training, a boat house, working labs, classrooms and will host NMI’s competitive collegiate sailing team.
Brigantine Hall is the main student center, a nice place for students to meet up, have lunch, get some help from instructors, and do their schoolwork!
Brigantine Hall, the name attributed to the Institute’s Brigantine S/V Fritha is the host facility to student services and recreation. Brigantine Hall provides lots of quiet space for tutoring and student support services such as one on one professional guidance, career counseling and just a place to talk to someone in a time of need. Brigantine Hall hosts the Offices for all Nautical Science faculty and facilitates a comfortable environment for faculty and students to connect in a relaxed environment. The basement of Brigantine Hall hosts a cooking classroom, a game room with ping pong, table top shuffle board (it’s more fun than you realize) and a pool table. We have a movie room and lounge and a dart room as well for dart tournaments in the traditional British sense.
Northeast Maritime Institute believes a “hands on” experience is necessary to develop and practice marine safety. Therefore, NMI provides students with a full installed 30 foot fiberglass lifeboat complete with gravity davits, which is used in our USCG Approved Lifeboatman Proficiency in Survival Craft Course. Students complete practical demonstrations of launching, rowing and recovering the lifeboat in this course.
Named after the heroine in "The Snow Goose" the brigantine S/V Fritha guides students on the Summer Sail program and serves as a multi-platform asset that facilitates our students and clients needs. Fritha provides the opportunity for hands on training in navigation, marlin-spike seamanship, marine ecology, and the lost art of square rig sailing.
In 2016, the Northeast Maritime Institute Foundation received a donation from Mr. and Mrs. Michael Jamel from Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts for the distinct purposes of using the vessel to augment real time training scenarios as sea for Northeast Maritime Institute – College of Maritime Science students and local maritime educational programming. The Breaux Bay Craft hull number 1554, a 65' x 18' aluminum passenger vessel with a 3’11” draft has already become a viable training platform for our College of Maritime Science students.
The vessel was built in 1982 and was transformed into a pleasure craft by the Jampel’s in the early 2000's and has recently received a complete navigational bridge renovation by CMS faculty and students. Navigator has twin 400 HP 1015 Deutz Diesels with an operating speed at 11 knots and topping out at 23 knots.
Captain Jules Kehoe was a beloved instructor at Northeast maritime Institute and encouraged students and faculty alike to keep improving and growing as mariners and as people. To "honor the mariner" NMI has a dedicated a Launch in her name.
