21 Schooner Adventure
Schooner Adventure
The dory-fishing schooner Adventure, built in nearby Essex in 1926, is one of the last survivors of her kind. During three decades of fishing the North Atlantic, she brought home more fish and more money than any other vessel. After her fishing career was over, she became a windjammer cruise ship off the coast of Maine until 1988, when she was returned to Gloucester.

Take a sail on a schooner out of Gloucester including the Adventure, a National Historic Landmark. See the dozens of historic schooners that come to Gloucester Harbor over Labor Day weekend for the annual Schooner Festival.
