Picture yourself relaxing on the deck of this beautiful 65- foot schooner as she sails out of Gloucester harbor on a light southwesterly breeze. Join us for a two-hour sail and get a taste for what it was like to sail on a fishing schooner a hundred years ago. Help the crew raise the sails, or just sit back and take in the sights and sounds of Gloucester's coastline. Some of our weekend public sails feature music. We offer group rates. And we specialize in private charters for weddings, corporate entertainment, teambuilding, birthdays and more. The Lannon is a great place for a party!

Easy to find, easy to park, and then all aboard a lovely, beautifully maintained schooner - just big enough but not too big! We had a quiet (barely any wind), partly sunny afternoon but somehow the captain managed to find some wind for us and...More

We had a wonderful two hours on the Schooner Thomas E. Lannon. We had several choices to choose from and we feel that we made the best decision. My husband was able to help hoist the sails. Our captain Heath was awesome.
