Esteemed Explorers!

The Imperial Expeditionary Society is an esteemed organization with the goal to explore and document the natural world. They are also known to boast at length about their incredible feats and experiences. An exclusive group with a strict dress code and social gatherings, they're also known to carry lavish curiosities and trinkets on their ships. Valuable plunder for pirates!

Alas, the Imperial Expeditionary Society rarely sails in these oceans, as they don't appreciate the pirate code of conduct. One member peered through his monocle and scoffed at the mention of pirates. Recently, a Society ship was commandeered by a few mateys, and now it's for sale in yer local shipyard! Too strange to strip down and sell for booty, this ship will inspire ye to set off on adventure to the unknown!

Enjoy the benefits of membership as ye gather around the Society's hidden bar to share a barrel o' rum and yer grand tales of adventure. Dress in yer finest as ye set off with esteem company to discover the unknown!

The Explorer Class Sloop* will be available from yer local shipyard through September 30, 2015!

*Pirates are civilized. No animals were harmed in the creation of this ship.
