Private Charters & Group Sails

We offer private charters and group trips seven days a week throughout our entire season. Do you have an event coming up? Think you might like to charter the boat? Read on to learn about the types of sails available to you. Then email us at [email protected] to reserve your date.

Private Charters

Take the helm of this Essex-built 65 foot Gloucester fishing schooner as we sail past lighthouses, castles, and magnificent waterfront homes. Sit back and enjoy the scenery or help the crew raise the sails as we sail through Gloucester’s working harbor, near rocky coves and beaches.

Corporate Events

Our charter coordinator will help you plan a relaxing sail for your team or to entertain clients, or a corporate team building cruise. Our staff will make it easy for you and we guarantee that your trip will be a highlight of your season!


The Schooner Lannon will provide you with a very memorable place for your special day. If you’re looking to plan a wedding, we can make planning it a breeze. From caterers to florists to photographers to organizing things onboard the schooner, we can help you put together a unique wedding.

Memorial Services

There is something inherently calming about the water. People who have loved the ocean in life often ask to have their remains sprinkled at sea. A memorial celebration onboard the Schooner Lannon is a wonderfully calming site for your farewell.

School Groups

When you are planning your field trips, think of the Lannon as a floating classroom. We work with local museums to coordinate programs for students. There are numerous possibilities for programs involving math, science, history, language, etc. The Schooner is truly a way to make education come alive!

Group Rates

We offer a safe, relaxing, and fun way to spend some time on the beautiful waters of Cape Ann. A sail on the Lannon is not a “stand and stare” experience…help the crew raise the sails, take a turn at the wheel…this is hands-on and FUN!

Corporate Team Building

If you are looking for a structured program, i.e., a day on the water where you can work together to accomplish shared goals, then our team building program might be right for you.
