The SWIFT


 

THE SWIFT

OF

CAMDEN, MAINE

NEW ADDITION TO OUR MAINE WINDJAMMER FLEET

Plans for the Swift were drawn in 1937 by Murray Peterson, a famous Maine naval architect who modeled his designs along the lines of the old Coasting Schooners. In a sense she is a smaller version of the Grace Bailey or Mercantile.

 Built as the Oliver C Wyant in East Boothbay by Scott Kennedy in 1983 for private use. this beautiful brigantine/schooner is being renamed THE SWIFT in honor of the founder of our company, Maine Windjammer Cruises and the entire windjammer industry.

The "SWIFT" is  currently undergoing a full conversion to a six passenger Luxury Windjammer for the overnight trade.  Watch for her 2022 sailing schedule.   Follow her progress on Schooner Capt Frank Swift Facebook.
