Featured Windjammer: Heritage

Heritage is the newest Windjammer. Launched in 1983, she was built by her owners Doug and Linda Lee and a hired crew at the North End Shipyard in Rockland at which they are co-owners. Planning and construction took 4 years.

Heritage is a massive vessel. Victory Chimes is larger, but this is the biggest two masted schooner in the fleet. She was constructed of native woods and designed with carrying passengers in mind. She carries an authentic classic deck engine to raise her anchor and is covered in beautifully finished wood.
