Summer is Upon Us!

We begin sailing on Memorial Day weekend

Experience the Sensations of Sailing at Sea

Come, join us, and experience the sensations of sailing at sea. Sail with us along the spectacular southern coast of Maine.

Slide gracefully along beautiful Ogunquit Beach for one moment and then watch as the coast transitions into the rugged rockbound beauty of the Marginal Way. Sail by oceanfront homes, and see waterfront scenery not accessible by land. See the coastlines of York and Cape Neddick or Ogunquit, the Wells beaches, and a little of the Kennebunks as they can only be seen while sailing. Listen to the surf crashing and ebbing over rocks while admiring the scenery that defines the Coast of Maine.

Watch as Perkins Cove fishermen bring in their catch, look for seals and the occasional Minke whale or just relax, sip a glass of wine, and see the sun go down. Maybe you’d like to take the wheel, hand a line, and have your children do the same, or perhaps it’s the feeling of just being on a true classic yacht that you seek. The Silverlining sometimes thrills and sometimes soothes as she charges windward, reaches offshore, or is pulled downwind by the spinnaker.

Whether you’re an old hand at sailing or just always wanted to try it, it’s your time and you will have the ocean practically to yourselves. Most of all have some fun, let the Silverlining be the backdrop for a lasting memory of Ogunquit and the southern coast of Maine.

Sail Intimately

Being at sea, under sail, is special, even for just a few hours! Spending time with your family or friends, just your group enjoying the experience, looking for sea life, listening to the sounds of the sea, enjoying a glass at sunset, breaking away from normal routines, and making memories… we’ve set the scene for you.

Sail Aboard a Historical Boat

Olin Stephens, America’s premiere yacht designer, entrusted the lines drawing for Silverlining to his favorite draftsman/marine architect, K. Aage Neilsen who completed the design that had been commissioned by a mutual friend. Built by the Hinckley company, she was one of the earliest ocean racing yachts to be built by Hinckley, considered by many to be the finest yacht builder in America. She enjoyed a two-decade-long ocean racing career competing all over the Atlantic basin.
