Elizabeth Monahan + Ross Beane
Designed by French and Stuart and launched by Machiasport Boat Shop in Maine in 1947 from wood, the very traditional gaff rigged schooner ALAMAR has been rebuilt and refitted over the years and is maintained in first class condition. ALAMAR was originally built for use by a summer camp, and she’s retained her workmanlike interior and deck layout, over the years, in a very sea kindly and well-maintained hull. ALAMAR provides comfortable berths for 6 people in the large main cabin (all are 6 feet or longer) plus the crew in the fo’c’sle. She has generous seating for 10 at the drop leaf table in the main cabin, and has a new “Halibut” porcelinized wood/charcoal stove (with small oven) for heating and cooking. The head (bathroom) is forward to port with a classic WC Sea-Clo – manual long handle head and basin. No shower but there is a sun shower for on deck use. There are screens for the hatch openings. Pillows are provided, sheets and blankets are not.
ACTRESS is a beautiful 75′ brigantine designed by Murray Peterson in 1937 and built by Scott Kennedy in East Boothbay Harbor, Maine. With her 80,000-lb displacement and 56′-long deck, ACTRESS makes a wonderful platform for learning to navigate and sail our beautiful coast. Carrying nine sails, she offers plenty of opportunities for everyone to handle sails, ropes, and sail. Capt. Hans Vierthaler purchased ACTRESS in 2017 and has set her up to carry six passengers for a very unique sailing experience.
