At a quaint New England village in Penobscot Bay with thousands of islands and mountain views off the coast of Maine, the windjammer Ladona sits at harbor ready to take you on a voyage to some of the most beautiful areas imaginable. Surrounded by the greatest concentration of islands and the highest mountains on the Atlantic coast of North America, this charming historic vessel is far removed from the hectic pace of everyday life. You will not only come away relaxed, but enjoy gourmet meals made from scratch, fine wine at all dinners, and onboard entertainment! All sailings drop anchor off a different deserted island and have a traditional all-you-can-eat Maine lobster bake and beachside BBQ. Look for lighthouses, seals, whales, and go to a small New England arts village with plenty of lobster boats! Help raise sails, lower the jib, navigate with the captain, or do nothing at all!!!
The windjammer “Ladona” is your lodging, a bristol clean 82’ long classic schooner fully restored just last year that can go into coves and anchorages the big ships can’t! From her maiden voyage in 1922 she was a working vessel and sub patrol boat during WWII off NYC Harbor. Her working hull was fully transformed and renovated into the finest ship (and fastest) ship in the Maine Windjammer fleet—she is now fully operational for elegant passenger cruising along her home off the most picturesque Maine coast. We have 6 small cabins with varied bed assignments—1 small queen cabin (2 occupants), 4 with two twin beds (2 occupants), and 1 twin bedroom cabin (1 occupant). There are 3 showers, 3 heads, hot/cold running water in each cabin, 110V outlets in each cabin and head, comfortable lounges on deck, stand-up paddleboards, a classic rowing dinghy to go ashore, seated dining on deck or generous galley below, weather-depending. Room to relax: 5 crew and 17 passengers total. See details at www.schoonerladona.com.
