If you are looking for a more intimate trip join us aboard our new boat- the Sailing Vessel Owl! The Owl is the most versatile sailboat in Camden Maine's Sailing Fleet. She was designed by world Famous yacht designer John Alden to be a fast and comfortable cruising boat. Built in 1941, she is a timeless classic that has been rebuilt to the highest of today standards. She is available to charter for up to six passengers, making her the most private Wooden Sailboat in Camden's Fleet. The Sailing Vessel Owl goes out for two and three-hour day sails and is available for two-hour, threee-hour, four-hour, six-hour, or full-day private sailing charters.

Captain Aaron Lincoln is a local Mainer and will talk about the history of the area as well as the schooner trade while you sail one of his favorite locations!

Weddings on a beautiful boat are the best!

Welcome to a new year!  We hope that everyone had a great holiday season, and enjoying winter thus far.  We have had quite a few conversations recently with people inquiring about the possibility of getting married on the Schooner Olad or the Cutter Owl this upcoming sailing season. We love to have people get married on the boat so much that two of our captains are notaries!  It's the perfect venue for an intimate affair, and the views can't be beat.  Many couples take a two hour private charter and get married near the lighthouse on Curtis Island...what a backdrop!  We also have many groups decide to make it an all day affair, and let us prepare them a traditional Maine lobster feast out on Warren Island State Park.  However much time is spent with us, we will help make it a day you and your guests will always remember. Along with weddings we also have many groups that charter the boats out for bachelorette and bachelor parties as well as something to do for their guests who come into town for a larger affair at one of the local resorts.  Either way, it’s always fun to help coordinate the event.  We love assisting in finding a local caterer or a florist to help make the boat especially festive.  It is our pleasure to help make your special day aboard the Olad or Owl flawless.  Please feel free to call 207-236-2323 or email info@maineschooners.com if you are thinking about taking a special sail with us.
