When and If
Sail on a little, luxurious bit of history aboard a yacht originally built for General George S. Patton and designed to combine racing speed with comfort and beauty. Meticulously restored just five years ago, the two-masted schooner features a teak deck, bronze fixtures, and gleaming wood trim. The ship is available for two-hour sunset cruises or for private charters.

Built in the image of a schooner from 1903, the Schooner Lannon is meticulously constructed of wood from locally grown trees and held together with more than 2,000 wooden pegs known as treenails. Two-hour public sails are offered every day throughout the summer; special offerings include sunset music cruises, fireworks sails, and star-gazing excursions.
