Built on Portland's waterfront, and launched in 2003, our 74' British design gaff rigged cutter has enjoyed hosting guests aboard since 2005. Designed and built in the spirit of tradition, Frances is a replica of working coastal pilot cutters that sailed the waters of Maine and New England between 1790 and 1812. Her workboat design heritage sets her apart from modern sailing yachts, and it is precisely these qualities that make her an ideal platform for entertaining under sail on Casco Bay.

DAYSAIL
Casco Bay is our neighborhood to share. Join us this season for weekly 2-hour daysails. Pack a picnic and bring along a couple of layers, your sunnies & an adventuresome spirit. Our sailing schedule is updated weekly and available on our online calendar. Reservations recommended.

ADULT FARE $38
CHILD (3-12 YEARS) $20
CHILD (0-3 YEARS) FREE

SPECIAL EVENT SAILS
Maine Sailing Adventures is working to creatively pair Maine's finest together. Yoga meets sunrise, sunsets meet soul music, the doubling of things that truly celebrate the sweetness of summer in Maine.

ACOUSTIC SUNSET SAIL
Drawing from the rich Portland music community, the acoustic sunset series pairs the best locally based songwriters and musicians with the elegant Frances. $38

YOGA SAIL
Capture summer in Maine on a sail that incorporates yoga, good company, and the inspiring natural beauty of the bay. Our four hour event includes a scenic sail to a calm location where an hour of yoga practice takes place right on deck. After the practice enjoy conversation and light fare as we return under sail to Portland. Space is limited, please reserve yours early. $80

WINE SAIL
A wine education course beautifully paired with a sail on Casco Bay. Taste wines from a variety of regions, discuss wine styles, grape varieties, and trends. Gain a comprehensive knowledge of wine to bring your appreciation to the next level. Santé! $65

CHARTER
Frances is available for private events. We can host parties of up to 42 guests. She has wide, spacious, clear decks, and cushioned on deck seating for your comfort. Our large canvas awning ensures shade for picnics at anchor, and an escape from the elements if weather rolls in. Sample local flavor at our on-board boat bar. We have been serving local brews and wine since 2007. Small parties, large parties, corporate outings, wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, birthdays, and every kind of celebration in between.
