Schooner Bowdoin visit

June 29 — 30

Noon — 4 p.m.  Special Events

The Schooner Bowdoin was built during the winter of 1920-21 for the famed Arctic explorer Donald B. MacMillan. At 88 feet long, 21 feet wide, and weighing 60 tons, the Bowdoin is the smallest vessel designed expressly for Arctic work. In 1921-22, the design of the ship proved to be perfect for MacMillan’s Arctic work, and he sailed the Bowdoin more than 300,000 miles over 26 voyages through the frozen North in exploration and scientific studies. The Bowdoin was completely rebuilt in 1980-84 by Maine Maritime Museum’s boatshop and serves as an excellent example of the Museum’s role in preserving Maine’s maritime history and heritage. The vessel now serves as a sail-training ship for Maine Maritime Academy. Come aboard and explore her for yourself. Free with Museum Admission
