Built for the passenger trade in 1967, this comfortable, well cared for schooner is a reliable revenue generator and passenger pleaser. The current owner / operator took over 27 years ago and built a successful business. The ship is certified for limited coastwise operations for 60 with overnight accommodations for 36 guests.
Each winter sees a bevy of projects large and small. Recent improvements include a replanked quarterdeck, a new head rig and replacement gaff jaws. In the words of her longtime captain, "The schooner gets what she needs. She always has."
