From the yacht America to the famous fisherman Bluenose no other rig more universally represents our maritime heritage than the two-masted schooner. A favorite among fisherman, traders and yachtsmen alike, schooners have long enjoyed a reputation for seaworthiness and speed. Now, you too can experience the ways of a schooner first hand with our sailing model ship, Coaster.
With a few household tools and clearly illustrated step-by-step instructions and plans, Coaster can be ready to launch with a time investment measured in hours not days. And sail? If you’re not able to chase her with a row boat or canoe, tie a light fishing line around her bowspirt and simply pull her around on the opposite tack or reel her in at you convenience.
