4 Reasons to take a Scenic Sailing Trip on the Schooner Eleanor in Kennebunkport

  1. The Schooner Eleanor, launched in May 1999, was built in Kennebunkport by Captain Rich Woodman and a crew of local craftsmen to the lines of L. F. Herreschoff's 1935 Mobjack design.Schooner_eleanor_001 You'll experience local craftsmanship!
  2. Although her hull was constructed using modern techniques, Eleanor is in every other way a traditional gaff rigged schooner. Spruce spars, mahogany transom, locust rails and hand carved trail boards all contribute to the beauty of this vessel. Flying four sails, with a large teak cockpit and spacious cushioned cabin tops to stretch out on, Eleanor will give you the feel of yachting in the 1930's. You'll have an authentic "Maine Wind-Jammer" experience!
  3. My trips on the Eleanor have been some of the most relaxing and enjoyable times spent on the waters off Kennebunkport.  Fortunately, the trips leave from The Arundel Wharf Restaurant which is located only a block away from The Captain Lord Mansion.  You'll experience relaxation and convenience! 
  4. This is one of my favorite summertime experiences.  I know you will enjoy it also.  Rick Litchfield

My friend and I went for a late afternoon sail on the Schooner Eleanor, complete with the wine, the cheese and the crackers we had brought. What a wonderful experience it was! The boat is a beautiful example of fine workmanship of which Captain Rich Woodman has every right to be extremely proud. In addition to his obvious talents as a craftsman, he is an able captain; charming, low key, and informative. He makes you feel truly welcome and at home on his lovely sailing vessel. I was especially impressed, near the end of our voyage, when he invited a seven year old boy to the helm where he allowed him to navigate the boat. In addition to the always exceptional seacoast scenery the look on the young boy's face was a joy to behold. Special thanks to the captain and his crew. Alicia Walker
