America is available for Whale Watching and Charters. The 139-foot America is a replica of the low black schooner famous for winning the historic Royal Yacht Squadron's "100 Guinea Cup" race around the Isle of Wight.

The America can host up to 80 guests and is available for sunset sails, whale watching, dinners, corporate events and even ocean-going overnight sails.

Set sail on this classic sailing vessel who's bow slices cleanly through the ocean swells. You'll enjoy one of the smoothest boat rides you'll ever experience! A classically designed, spacious, grand lady, this huge schooner will take you on an unparalleled adventure.
