Charter the Pinky Maine - A Good Time to Be Had by All

Now offering charters aboard the Pinky schooner Maine out of Gloucester, MA. Families, students, artists and rusticators of all types can now charter the Pinky schooner Maine with Capt. Harold Burnham for parties of up to six people on half-day, whole-day and overnight trips or longer. The Maine is an authentic 1830s Pinky schooner replica built by apprentices in Bath, Maine in 1986 and was purchased by Burnham Boatbuilding in 2006. After undergoing minor alterations and repairs by Burnham, the Maine offers a unique perspective from which to view historic Gloucester harbor and the nearby coastline. Aboard the Maine, passengers can walk the decks of this ancient vessel type and learn about fishing from historic vessels, haul lobster traps under sail, and also sail with other schooners including the Thomas E. Lannon, the Lewis H. Story and the Fame - all built by Capt. Burnham.

On our whole-day trips, we like to include arriving and departing at different destinations including a stop for an ice cream cone or walk about a nearby coastal community, or even climbing the lighthouse towers on remote island preserves. On our overnight trips, we can often circumnavigate "around the world"- our world being Cape Ann or visit the Isle of Shoals and beyond. We do have fun!!
