Lavengro is a 1926 wooden gaff rigged schooner and a great boat for experiencing what sailing was like in the past century. Join us on Lavengro for great excursion, a romantic evening, or a break for the whole family.
We also offer social/public sails which focus on creating a personal and relaxing experience for everyone. There is plenty of space on the boat to spread-out and enjoy the views, or hop-in with the crew and learn how to sail this historic vessel. If you would like a private charter you can use our reservation form or book below.
The Schooner Lavengro has several sister ships, most of which were designed as oyster schooners in Biloxi, Mississippi.
She is named after a book written by George Borrow: Lavengro, The Scholar, The Gypsy, The Priest. According to the author, lav-engro is a Romany word meaning “word-master.” You can read the book here.
The Schooner Lavengro is owned and operated by the Northwest Schooner Society. To support the ongoing maintenance and restoration of this boat click here.
