Built in 1886 by George Vannaman in Mauricetown, New Jersey, the Isaac H. Evans started her life as a fishing vessel, harvesting oysters through the Delaware Bay. In 1971 she came to Maine for a major refit at the Percy and Small Shipyard in Bath. By 1973 she left the docks completely rebuilt and ready for her new life as a day and overnight passenger vessel.
With a 22 overnight and 35 day passenger COI Isaac H. Evans is truly a unique buy. She is a well maintained schooner with very comfortable amenities and a shallow draft allowing for easy access to Maine’s infamous archipelagos. Due to her extraordinary historical significance, the Isaac H. Evans has earned a National Historic Landmark designation from the United States. As a living legend and vibrant business, purchasing this vessel is an opportunity to invest in a piece of American history while carrying on one of the countries oldest traditions; exploring coastal ports and immersing oneself in the great outdoors.
