Royal Ark Mariners

The Royal Ark Mariner Degree is attached to the Mark Degree and is open to all Mark Master Masons.

This beautiful and interesting Degree has no historical connection to the Mark Degree although it is governed by Mark Grand Lodge, and as its name suggests it has a nautical  flavour, taking for its scenario the circumstances leading up to the Great Flood as recorded in the book of Genesis and the steps taken by Noah to build the Ark, by which mankind was preserved from perishing in the “Universal Deluge”.

The senior officers of a Royal Ark Mariner Lodge represent Noah and his two sons, Japheth and Shem.

Like the Mark Master Masons Degree, there is only one ceremony of Elevation.

The Royal Ark Mariner Degree has some really beautiful portions of ritual, which are guaranteed to make a lasting impression on every candidate.
