The Schooner Yankee

The Schooner Yankee

The name “Yankee” is synonymous with traditional deep sea sailing and the romance of adventure under sail. The Boudreau Family, last registered owners of this famed vessel sailing between Nova Scotia and the Caribbean islands to the south now offer our rights to her hull.

This is the schooner that inspired thousands to embrace the romance of the sea and the wonderful wind ships of yesteryear. Under the able command of Captain Irving Johnson, the schooner “Yankee” circumnavigated the globe 3 times. Her passengers & crew experienced the adventure of life under sail as it was in the days of yore.

Later, the schooner “Yankee” continued to carry passengers under the ownership and command of Canadian, Captain Walter Boudreau, and his Windjammer cruises. His son, Captain Lou Boudreau, wrote a book titled “The Man Who Loved schooners” chronicling their adventures under sail.( See books for sale)

The Schooner Yankee project is committed to recapturing this wonderful era and we look forward to your kind support.
