Book the 52ft Angleman Mayflower Ketch for up to 6 people. The only wooden pirate ship available to charter in Newport Harbor, with a salty crew, well experienced in traditional sailing aboard this small tall ship! *The U.S. Coast Guard mandates face coverings for all passengers and crew* • 8 hour day $1500 • Catalina Overnight Package starting at $1200 ~*~ Ask about converting your sail into a Pirate Adventure! ~*~ What To Expect Onboard: Board the long boat, Pilgrim at the dock and venture out to the Lido Channel where Mayflower is moored. Mayflower is a 1960 Square-Topsail Ketch designed by Hugh Angleman and built by the American Marine shipyard almost entirely out of teak, in a design that harkens back to the 1700s. She flies up to seven sails at a time inducing the gaff main and mizzen, stay sail, jib, flying jib, square topsail, and course. Any salty old mariner will surely have a smile on their face as they take the helm either on her aft deck or inside the pilot house if the weather is not very warm. On deck there is plenty of room for lounging and taking in the beautiful coastal views! Below decks she is appointed with a Great Cabin at the stern, with two single bunks that are convertible to doubles, and can be divided into two more private sleeping areas with a bulkhead in between. Forward of the midships pilot house is the main cabin, which houses the galley and dinette as well as two additional single bunks. Mayflower is the perfect vessel for adventuring over to Catalina Island for the weekend, or more adventurous jaunts circumnavigating Catalina or voyaging to the Channel Islands and beyond!
