Nobody Does it Boyder

Boyd N Sheppard

This is the schooner that almost wasn't.

Battered in the harbor by a winter storm, the great schooner had an uncertain future.


Built in 1886 and saved by the passion and vision of the McKinlays - and bought for a dollar! - she sails again, under her original name, and in newly bright shape.

Charming, historic and spry, she sails the midcoast, adding to Maine's beauty wherever she goes. 

Sail into the Extraordinary

The BOYD N. SHEPPARD, built in 1886, has a unique cruising program to complement your Maine experience.


We provide an opportunity to sail and explore Maine for an afternoon or dine among the sights of this magical area.

Both Captain Katie and Chef Adam have sailed on a multitude of vessels, holding all manner of positions, for over 20 years.


Adam comes with a degree in outdoor recreation leadership. His passion to teach and explore has guided him into this industry forever. Katie has come up through the "hawsepipe" so to speak, she learned to sail at the age of 12 and became serious about it in her early 20's. The rest is history in the making. 

Adam and Katie's worldly travels have shaped a diverse menu that introduces elements from outside of New England and enhances the traditional fare. The food we serve is locally sourced, ethically raised, and utilizes local farms and produce as much as possible. By procuring the provisions locally and day-of sailing, our meals aboard are as fresh and delicious as possible.
