About the Ketch
This year, the Morning in Maine is celebrating its 23rd year sailing in the windjammer fleet as the premier boating experience in the city of Rockland. Morning in Maine is a coastal ketch designed and built by the noted Pete Culler, a renowned designer of vessels from Dartmouth, MA.
She was launched in So. Dartmouth, MA in 1970 at the Concordia Yacht Co. Built of the finest oak frames and Atlantic cedar planks she has been meticulously maintained by one Captain and owner. She was built to be a traditional sailing vessel with modern conveniences and electronics.
Her overall length is 55 ft., she has a 12-ft. beam, and 17 tons dead weight with an easily-handled, marconi rig. She is now serving the passengers of Rockland under her second owner Captain Bob Pratt.
Morning in Maine offers Rockland day sails, private Maine sailing charters, and special events from the Rockland city pier.
