Tallship MJ

Welcome to Tall Ship MJ!

MJ is a vintage sailing schooner that has that "old friend" feeling even when meeting her for the first time!  She is a warm, charming, wooden schooner built in 1975, but modeled after work boats from Nova Scotia that were popular about 120 years ago.


Her day job is to share  the timeless wonder of sailing ships on the Inland Seas.  She is available for daily sailing excursions, private events, or  special group programs.  

Maritime Magic

Each trip is infused with special details to help guests feel the magic of the bygone days of old sailing ships, their songs and stories.
