Enjoy the cerulean waters of Catalina via a Private Cruise aboard our classic schooner "Lively" for up to 6 passengers. *The U.S. Coast Guard mandates face coverings for all passengers and crew* Lively is a 1976 Willard Marine custom schooner. She was designed by Hale Field and constructed at Willard Boat Works in Costa Mesa. She has spent most of her life in Newport Harbor, occasionally venturing up or down the coast to cruise or participate in the America's Schooner Cup--which she won in 2016--or across the channel to Catalina Island. She is a dream to sail and flies up to five sails at a time: gaff-rigged main and fore sails, with a gaff topsail, a fisherman topsail, and a jib on a self-tending boom. Her auxiliary propulsion is a 30 horsepower Yanmar inboard engine. Down below she has a dinette table that seats four comfortably, a small galley (kitchen) with an icebox, and a head (restroom).
