Heron is a famous, proven 65′ John Alden design that’s fast and comfortable with round the world capabilities. It is one of the most famous classic yachts of all time. Heron is family built, owned and operated by the owners of Camden, Maine. She was built in 18 months to the 1928 plans of the famous yacht designer John G Alden. See the May/June 2004 WoodenBoat article of Schooner Heron’s construction. The Schooner Heron is featured as “Sanderson’s Yacht” in the Johnny Depp film “The Rum Diary” based on the book by Hunter S. Thompson. The winter season finds Schooner Heron in the warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Sail with us on a week long adventure vacation among the islands of the Grenadines.

For the curious, my husband and I physically built Schooner Heron over 3 Maine winters and launched her in 2003. Since then, we and our 2 daughters have sailed over 100,000 miles on Heron between Maine and the Grenadines. In 2009 Heron starred as Sanderson's Yacht in the Johnny Depp film "Rum Diary", based on the book by Hunter S. Thompson. Beautiful shots of the boat in that film. (Our loyal boating friends say it was the best part of the movie.) We would love to have you experience sailing Heron first hand with a charter in the Grenadines or in Maine. Nigel (Twig) and Bonnie are 100 ton USCG licensed captains, having sailed extensively in the Gulf of Maine, trans-Atlantic and the Caribbean, sailing skiffs, schooners and square riggers. They have been doing tours from Rockport Harbor for more than 27 years and doing charters in the Caribbean the last 16 years.
