What To Expect Onboard:

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 this past April. She is a dream to sail and flies up to four sails at a time, a Marconi-rigged main sail, a gaff rigged foresail, a jib on a self-tending boom, and a fisherman staysail. 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 electric refrigerator, and a head (restroom).
