The Maritime Foundation was founded in the early 1980s. It is a charity which aims to promote Britain’s interests across the entire maritime sector. Its purpose is to inform and raise public and parliamentary awareness of the importance of Britain’s maritime industries, commerce and defence through education, training and research, as well as through the foundation’s annual Maritime Media Awards. The Maritime Foundation has published a wide range of reports on the need for a coherent maritime policy, including major studies on the British merchant fleet and its linkages, defence matters, marine leisure, shore-based infrastructure, maritime skills, and their contribution to the nation’s economy.
