During your next Maine vacation at Spruce Point Inn Resort this season, book a private sail along Boothbay Harbor onboard your own historic Friendship Sloop or restored historic Catboat!
The Sarah Mead, known as the original lobster boat, a privately-owned 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.
Originally designed for fishing in Massachusetts, catboats feature a beam typically half their length. This creates a wide, stable and spacious area for fishermen to work. In “Paula Anne’s” case, a 12.5′ beam creates a large, spacious cockpit that can comfortably seat plenty of family and friends. Another key element to the catboat’s success as a fishing vessel is her shallow draft. Rather than a permanent fixed keel, “Paula Anne’s” adjustable centerboard would allow her to navigate around and even over the sandbars that Cape Cod is known for.
