The Schooner Olad sails daily from Camden, Maine Memorial Day weekend to mid-October. The Schooner Olad offers historic two-hour day sails aboard a completely restored, classic yacht built in 1927. The Olad also offers custom sailing charters and can hold up to 22 passengers. Whether it is for two hours, half day, or full day, the Olad is the perfect place for a family reunion, office outing, wedding, party, or a get together with good friends!

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-hour day sails and is available for two-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!

Getting the Olad and Owl ready for spring!

Winter greetings!  We are almost through February which apparently has been a record breaking month for cold temperatures here in Maine.  Good job everyone for sticking it out.  The cold is definitely not for everyone, and frankly we are about ready to call Uncle!  This is the time of year where we begin thinking about what needs to be done on the boats for the upcoming season.  This means lots of hours in the wood shop with sand paper and varnish.  It's a thankful break from my hours in the office...I love to get my hands dirty. We are continuing to book private charters aboard both the Olad and the Owl for the upcoming season.  We are fortunate to have another couple getting married on the Olad this year, and we are so excited!  We also have family reunions and 1/2 day picnics and lobster bakes scheduled for Warren Island State Park which is always a highlight of our summer.  If you are interested in joining us aboard the Olad or Owl for a private sail, please don't hesitate to give us a call for more information.  We will be booking up quickly as we get closer to season, and we want to make sure you get your preferred day of sailing in.  Feel free to call us directly at 207-236-2323 or send us an email at [email protected]  May the warm weather find us...Cheers!
