"I personally want to see the tall ships remain there," a local councilman, John Oxenham, told BBC News. "They are a huge part of the attraction of Charlestown, and the surrounding properties all rely on this, the film industry included."

If you are only interested in purchasing part of the area, Davies has divided the property into three separate lots. The first, at $2.4 million, includes the harbor and a number of businesses. Another lot, for the same price, is 2 acres of undeveloped land. And the third, for $2.25 million, is a marine training center and charter business, and it includes two tall ships.
