Schooner Lewis R. French

America's Oldest Windjammer


The Lewis R. French has 6 double bed cabins, 2 bunkbed cabins, and 5 single cabins (with NO singles supplements for singles). When the French was converted from a cargo vessel to a passenger-carrying Windjammer, cabins were built in the main hold. The cabins are cozy and comfortable. There is standing headroom, nooks and hooks to stow all your gear, and a comfortable bed in every one. Each cabin has running fresh water, an opening window, electric reading lights, and comes furnished with linens, blankets, and towels. All the cabins are about the same size, each is unique in its own way.

Two heads (bathrooms) are located on deck, one with a hot fresh water shower. The deck is 65 feet long, so there is plenty of room to stretch out. We have cushions, benches, and folding chairs for relaxation. We also have an awning to provide cover from hot sun or wet weather while we are at anchor.

Our galley is located up forward where our crew cooks all our meals on a wood cookstove. We can serve everyone at once in the galley, though while sailing we often serve buffet style on deck. The galley is also a great place for games or reading or just enjoying the warmth our woodstove.Maine Windjammer Cabin Layout
