The Adirondack is a gaff-rigged schooner with a wooden hull, and was completed by Scarano Boat Building in Albany, NY. Schooner Adirondack was built in 1994 and joined our fleet in 2007. She is Coast Guard certified for 49 guests. Her mast reaches over 70 feet above deck and has just under 2000 square feet of sail area. She is 65 feet on deck, 80 feet overall, and her draft is 8.5 feet. On a high wind day, it is not uncommon for her to reach 10 knots under sail. She is a very lively and fast vessels, and all of their captains feel that they are an absolute dream to operate!

These period-styled schooners were designed and built for charter work. Their wood construction conveys an engagingly traditional aesthetic both above- and below-deck.
Operated by Classic Harbor Line in Manhattan, and Sailing Excursions Inc. in Newport, RI, respectively, they have shown sailors and non-sailors alike how enjoyable a few hours or a day on a classic schooner can be.
Knowledge and skill in performance design have been demonstrated by numerous first-place finishes by several Scarano sailing yachts, including an elapsed-time course record in the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race. Our designs have excelled competitively even while adhering to the requirements of USCG certification to carry passengers.
