Passenger Vessel (Subchapter T)


The 88-foot schooner Wendameen, like Bagheera, was designed by the famed yacht designer John Alden. She was built in East Boothbay, Maine, and launched in 1912 when she took center stage in the golden era of fast, sleek ocean schooners. Inactive since the 1930s, she was thoroughly restored in the late 1980s and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Wendameen is Coast Guard certified for 14 overnight passengers plus crew or 49 day sail passengers. Portland Schooner Co. conducts a variety of shipboard programs on Wendameen that engage young people in active learning. Schools, camps, and nonprofits can charter Wendameen for two-hour sails, a full day, or several days.
