Ishmael is one of the many wooden boats found in Vineyard Haven. I have owned her for 41 years, and my pride of ownership, is evident in her lasting beauty. She is also one of the many schooner-rigged boats found here.


Vineyard Haven is one of the best harbors in the world for viewing wooden boats.  Ishmael is a 1929 Eastward schooner designed and rigged for stability and smooth sailing.  Her open, spacious cockpit allows everyone to be together for viewing the beauty of Vineyard Harbor and Sound.
