During your next Maine vacation at Spruce Point Inn Resort and Spa this season, book a private sail along Boothbay Harbor onboard your own Friendship Sloop! The Sarah Mead, known as the original lobster boat, a fully restored Newbert and Wallace 32′ classic wooden Friendship sloop and currently the only wooden sailing lobster boat on the Maine coast, is operated by a single captain with one crew member – exclusively from the Spruce Point Inn Dock.

As a fellow “Environmental Leader”, the family of the Sarah Meade converted to Electric propulsion in 2013.
