Quaco Queen


      Ship Under Construction


Ships built in St. Martins sailed around the world for decades bringing prosperity and power to New Brunswick, and now, 147 years later, a piece of marine art history has been brought back home to Saint Martins. Join the Quaco Museum, as we celebrate Canada 150, by welcoming home the restored figurehead from the ship The Prince Victor.
