Your Big Day just got Bigger

Whether it's for your Big Day, or any day you want to make big, chartering your special occasion aboard the Schooner BOYD N SHEPPARD will make your big day bigger and the memories more magical.

Any time spent sailing in Maine is special, and our charming 1886 schooner makes any time on the water that much more enchanting, so imagine adding both of those wonderful experiences to your special occasion. 

  • Charming weddings
  • family outings
  • company functions
  • memorial observances
  • group excursions
  • fellowship events

Why celebrate indoors? Too often, when your family, or company or special group of friends gets together, it's indoors.

We're in Maine! It's not the indoors of Maine that make it special, it's the outdoors; the rugged, natural beauty, the crisp air, the unspoiled maritime scenery.

Maine is a beautiful state and the MidCoast area is one of the gems in its crown. To make the most of your event, make Maine the most of it. And, the best way to make the most of Maine is to sail the sights aboard our historic schooner!

If you want your day to be out of this world,
then leave the world behind.

What else could we possibly add to your occasion to make it even more memorable, magical and merry? How about the most delicious food and tasty drinks?


Yes, we cater our events with fine feasts of crafted, culinary creations overseen by Chef Adam. We are also the only schooner sailing out of Rockland with a liquor license. Add to this the fact that Captain Katie is a renowned local mixologist, and it should be abundantly clear to you by now that, when it comes to memorable weddings and special occasions, nobody does it Boyder!
