The Schooner Mary Day

  • She is the first schooner built specifically to carry guests on windjammer vacations.

  • We rebuilt and refurbished her in 2000 - and didn't stop there. We continue to upgrade her every year.

  • The open, uncluttered decks provide ample space to stretch out and relax.

  • Cabins have windows, skylights, and 9 feet of headroom, for plenty of fresh air.

  • She is the only windajammer with heat in every cabin. The wood-fired heat keeps things dry and wards off the occasional evening chill.

  • There's an all-you-can-eat lobster picnic offered on every 3-6 day cruise.

  • Our cooks work hard to satisfy the hungriest appetites with delicious dishes prepared from scratch and baked to perfection, all in our antique wood burning cookstove.

  • We are the owners/operators/guardians. We've been sailing Penobscot Bay for three decades and wouldn't miss sharing this experience with you. As educators, we'll help you get more from your Maine sailing adventure.

  • There's no inboard engine, just pure sails.

  • Mary Day is Coast Guard inspected and impeccably maintained by our dedicated crew.

  • 28 guests, 7 crew, 1 magnificent coastline - and no itinerary!
