Sail on the newest Maine windjammer in the fleet, built in 1983 along the traditional lines of the schooners that navigated the waters off the coast of Maine more than a hundred years ago. Attention has been given to the details that will assure you the best windjammer cruise around.

Welcome aboard for your sailing adventure. A large stable vessel, the HERITAGE is 95 ft long and 24 ft wide, built with your comfort in mind.

  • plenty of deck space for everyone
  • stairs instead of ladders leading below the deck
  • a large galley where everyone can enjoy meals
  • cozy cabins with plenty of headroom
  • large skylights allow for natural light and fresh air below deck

All of your food and meals are included with your trip. Our chef in the galley creates delicious restaurant-quality dishes, all cooked on a wood-burning stove. The smell of freshly baked breads and desserts fill the air, and gourmet hors d'oeuvres are a perfect accompaniment with an afternoon drink on deck. The trip wouldn't be complete without an all-you-can-eat traditional Maine lobster bake on a deserted beach.

Enjoy a memorable sailing experience, exploring the beautiful islands and bays of "DownEast" Maine. We'll anchor at unspoiled islands and harbors. Perhaps you'd like to go for a row, explore the beach or just relax and enjoy the scenery after the day's sail. Often we'll drop anchor in a picturesque harbor and go ashore to explore a coastal village, do a little shopping or take a walk out to the lighthouse on the point. There's no set schedule. We'll go where the wind and tide takes us.

This trip far exceeded all of my expectations!
