A Chat with Schooner Yacht Heron
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
SCHOONER HERON is family built, owned and operated and is fast becoming a legend. Since her launch in 2003, she has sailed over 80,000 nautical miles between Maine and the Caribbean and carried more than 25,000 guests. We love to share our adventures with you!
What is the experience customers can expect?
Heron is fast and comfortable; the bay and islands beautiful. You will be treated to a unique sailing experience along with informative narrative about Rockport's shipbuilding, lime, and ice industries. Glide past Indian Island Light and catch the breeze to find seals, porpoise,and eagle.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We love what we do and have had a passion for building and sailing classic wooden boats all our lives. To share it with people and inspire them to follow their own passions is very gratifying. Plus we could involve our daughters in the building and sailing of Schooner Heron, too.
What do you love most about your job?
The view from the office and the wide range of people we meet!
