The Nathan was built by volunteers and launched on the Fourth of July, 1994. She is the last of the Bay's skipjacks built to be a dredge boat, and still is owned, operated, crewed and maintained by volunteers from the nonprofit Dorchester Skipjack Committee.

The Nathan's public sailing season runs from May through October. Regularly scheduled public sails depart from Long Wharf, at the end of High Street, in Cambridge, Maryland.
