Sailing Yacht Calypso
51 Ft Alden Ketch
Calypso's heritage is second to none. She was designed by the late world renown yacht designer John Alden. Her classic lines, roomy mahogany saloon, and attention to detail are quintessential Alden touches. She was built by America's oldest yacht builders, Hodgdon Brothers of Boothbay Maine in 1978.
She's a cutter rigged ketch, meaning two masts and two head sails. That means we'll be sailing with four sails! Not only does that create for a majestic sight, it means she's powerful! While she's very stable, safe, and provides a dry sailing experience, we can still get her fully heeled over and flying fast though the water if you're looking for a thrill. We can also choose to keep it mellow and even keeled for those days we want to just relax and enjoy our food and views.
Choose to hang out in the cock pit and learn the ropes and take the helm. Or lounge in our deck seats, on the bow deck, in our bean bag chairs on the back of the boat, or even up on the bow sprit if you're feeling adventurous.

Herreshoff Harbor Pilot 18'
If you're familiar with New England yachting, you know the name Herreshoff. This Harbor Pilot was designed by legendary designer Sydney Herreshoff and built by Squadron Yachts in Bristol, RI in 1973. The same hull shape is used in their world famous "Cat Boat".
She was last utilized as the launch boat for the prestigious Rhode Island Yacht Club. After many years of transporting club members to their yachts on moorings, she has been recommissioned as our harbor cruiser. We use her to get to/from Béchamel as well as cruising around the harbor. Her swim platform and ladder make her perfect for a quick dip in one of our scenic coves!
