The Seattle Fireboat Duwamish is a piece of Seattle history. Currently, the boat is in need of repair. Our goal is to bring it back to its original glory.

Update!  Thanks to a generous grant from 4Culture we have been able to open the engine room. The engine room is now available for touring.  Please call 206 999-5107 to schedule a time.

We are currently raising funds to have the ship painted.  

Please keep our history afloat. If you are a firefighter, historian, seaman, Seattlite, or anyone who just wants to do the right thing, please contribute generously to this effort.

The Seattle Fireboat Duwamish is open for tours every Sunday (weather permitting) from 11 am to 4pm at the South Lake Union Historic Ships Wharf at 650 Terry Ave. N. in Seattle behind the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI). 

The Duwamish is a not-for-profit, 501c3, registered National Historic Landmark and a Seattle Historic Landmark.

The Duwamish was built in 1909 to protect Seattle's waterfront and boats. When the Duwamish wasn't fighting fires it could be found providing water shows for Seattleites and visiting dignitaries.
Now designated as a National Historic Landmark, as well as a Seattle Historic Landmark, the Duwamish needs your help. Please help us keep this Seattle treasure afloat.

It is a great old boat - likely one of a kind.

Thanks for a great experience for our 4-year old, Hugo! All he talks about is being a fire fighter when he grows up :-D
