What To Expect Onboard:

The Alliance was built in 1995 by Treworgy Yachts in Palm Coast, Florida.  She was built as the Kathryn B. and worked as a charter vessel in the Maine Windjammer fleet.  She cruised the waters of Penobscot Bay, Maine in the summer months, and chartered in the Caribbean Islands in the winter.

Sail in the Chesapeake Bay

In 2005 we purchased her and brought her to Yorktown, Virginia to start the daysail cruises from Riverwalk Landing Pier as the Alliance.  She gets her new name from the French and American Alliance that was instrumental in winning the war of Independence in 1781. It also represents the partnership or alliance of her owners.
