SAIL the Brigantine ACTRESS out of Belfast, ME and Around Penobscot Bay (2018 Maine Sailing Charters)

19 April 2018
No Comments
ACTRESS is a 75' Murray Peterson schooner designed in 1937. She is traditionally rigged with deadeyes, pinrails, and lots of blocks. She requires 2-3 crew to sail her. She's a great charter vessel with lots of room. With 6 berths below and wide open decks for lounging above, she's a comfortable vessel that makes a fine vacation home on the water.

Captain Hans Vierthaler has been sailing, teaching, and working on boats for 35 years and has had his USCG Captain's license for 25 years. He previously owned and operated Abigail, a 39' Alden ketch, which he used as a sail training vessel. He teaches coastal cruising courses at The WoodenBoat School, and schooner Actress is his charter business proudly running out of Belfast, Maine. He knows all the best spots and events happening in and around the rich cruising grounds of Penobscot Bay, loves meeting new people, and looks forward to sharing the experience of sailing.
