I'm Assuming you mean the S.S. Anne .
In Pokemon Firered/Leafgreen, there isn't a clock-based Calendar system. This means that the game has no way of keeping up with a years or months that pass by.
Therefore, after the ship leaves, it is gone for good. It will never come back to Kanto in this specific game.

Despite rumors going around, there is no cheat code that will make it come back either. The whole "Defeat the Elite four __ Times and it will return!" rumor was eventually busted as a fake.
Once the ship leaves the port, it is never to return again.
However, there is a glitch to keep the from leaving in the first place. That is, if you were to battle someone and lose on the ship before it leaves. This would send you back to the Pokemon center, thus never triggering the ship's depart script.
Keep in mind that glitches may sometimes corrupt your game though.

Hope I helped.
