Associate Members

HNSA Associate Members are organizations whose objectives are compatible with the objectives of the Historic Naval Ships Association. Examples are historic ships not yet open to the public, firms who supply goods and services to Fleet Members, for-profit tourist attractions such as ship excursion lines, and non-profit organizations working to obtain historic naval ships for siting and display as museum vessels.

HNSA encourages its Fleet Members to give preference to the products and services offered by its Associate Member vendors and suppliers. It also advises Fleet Members to make their own decisions regarding the purchase, employment or other use of the products and services offered by its Associate Members. HNSA incurs no liability and assumes no responsibility for problems that may occur prior to, during or after an Associate Member has supplied a product or performed a service in support of a Fleet Member.

Ocean Technical Services (OTS) began in 1984 and is a full service, nationwide marine surveying and consulting company. While working at Boston Fuel & Transportation Company as a licensed wheelhouse tug master aboard the coastwise tugboat, barge and tanker fleet, Joe Lombardi began getting requests to lend his expertise to surveying projects.

Recently, OTS has experienced significant growth in the Charleston, SC and Houston markets. We can assist with your marine project, anywhere in the United States or overseas. Chances are we can help with international projects as well.

The Mission of the Pritzker Military Museum and Library is to acquire and maintain an accessible collection of materials and develop appropriate programs focusing on the Citizen Soldier in the preservation of democracy.  Colonel J.N. Pritzker, IL ARNG (Retired), founder of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library, assembled a major collection of books and related materials on military history, with a particular focus on the concept of the Citizen Soldier in America. Today, building upon that foundation through the generosity of private donors, the Pritzker Military Museum & Library has become a non-partisan research organization that attempts to increase the public understanding of military history and the sacrifices made by the men and women who have served.

In a democratic society, it is important for people of all viewpoints to have an open, public forum to discuss the past, present, and future of the military. Through its collection and its programs, the Museum & Library is dedicated to serving as a forum for those discussions and preserving them for future generations. Since opening in 2003, the Museum & Library has hosted more than 400 events featuring the country’s most acclaimed authors, historians, journalists, and scholars.

This group is working to open U-475 to the general public. The submarine is available by special arrangement to school groups, private functions, and TV and film units. 

About the Sub Foxtrot B-39 Hunter Killer Class Submarine: Foxtrot B-39 (U 475) was built in 1967, and used specifically for training foreign submariners – Libyan, Cuban and Indian.

She was in active service with the Russian Baltic Fleet until April 1, 1994, having spent 27 years in active service. The vessel arrived in London from the naval base in Riga, Latvia, in July 1994 under the command of its Captain Vitalij Burda who bid official farewell to his second home for the last 23 years. She was at Long’s Wharf, Thames Barrier until 1998 and then moved to Folkestone.

The submarine is currently moored in the middle of the river Medway at Strood, Kent adjacent to Rochester Bridge.
