The Mystic Whaler is a reproduction of a late 19th century coastal cargo schooner that was designed for the passenger trade by Chubb Crockett of Camden, Maine. She was built in 1967 in Tarpon Springs, Florida and was rebuilt in 1993 in Providence, Rhode Island. The Mystic Whaler is the sister ship of the Sloop Clearwater.
The Mystic Whaler’s warm interior features Italian oak floors and fir wainscoting with mahogany accents. Her modern amenities include 6 bathrooms with hot showers.
The schooner meets or exceeds all Coast Guard standards for safety with an auxiliary diesel engine and generator and a full array of navigational equipment.
