The Blount Differenceshare
Luther Blount, the founder of Blount Small Ship Adventures, could have stopped the day he coined the term “small ship cruising.” By then, he was a prolific inventor and shipbuilder. He’d created ships so innovative, his competitors lined up, hoping to buy them. But he always saved the biggest innovations for his own fleet. Ships with bow ramps. Retractable pilot houses. Ships totally unlike anything else in cruising. He’d taken people deep into the nooks and crannies of the world, and along the way, discovered adventure in the places big cruises couldn’t sail.
Today, we celebrate another year of Blount Small Ship Adventures. And, we celebrate a man who kept on sailing. Who kept innovating with a passion that lives on, every time a Blount ship leaves port.
