The new Lunenburg Schooners

About me

Location Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada
Introduction Based on original designs inspired by the classic vessels of the age of sail, the New Lunenburg Schooners are simple, elegant cruising craft, modeled to be extremely seaworthy, sail swiftly, perform boldly and allow their proud owners to live comfortably aboard as they pursue their sailing dreams, whether that’s blue water adventures to remote islands or cruising along the coast. Proud to be located in the historic seaport of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada, Lunenburg Schooners – a project of Dawson Moreland & Associates – are built in the tried and true, time-tested way with stout wooden planks on heavy double-sawn frames, the same techniques that created the famous “Fast and Able” North Atlantic fishing schooners Bluenose and Bluenose II of Lunenburg and the great schooners of Gloucester but using only the very best materials and finest durable timbers sourced from around the world. Perhaps most importantly, Lunenburg Schooners are designed and crafted by shipwright-mariners who share a love for tradition and the schooner rig in particular, and who understand the value of both. As sailors themselves, they’ll share your dream and help to make it come true.
