Downeast Friendship Sloop Charters invites you aboard the oldest Friendship Sloop still sailing. Built in 1899, she was a working sloop for many years before becoming a private yacht and sailing under the inauspicious name “Depression”. She carries her original name again and even hauls a few lobster traps under sail. Enjoy some incredible sailing, take the wheel and relax on the water. Day sails, private charters, and lobsterbake cruises are available, with soft drinks and an appetizer, free parking and dockside convenience.

by its large gaff rig mainsail and long bowsprit.
