Schooner America 2.0

Schooner America 2.0Offering our most premium sailing experience, Schooner America 2.0 is the newest, largest, most elegant vessel designed for Classic Harbor Line. Added to the Classic Harbor Line fleet in 2011, America 2.0 offers the most exceptional day sailing one can find. She is the fastest, most refined, and the most comfortable schooner of the fleet. The past meets the future aboard Classic Harbor Line’s, Schooner America 2.0. She is modeled after one of the most famous maritime icons of all time, the winner of the first “America’s Cup” of 1851, Schooner America. The “2.0” aspect of the vessel refers to the eco-friendly nature of both her cutting-edge construction materials and her propulsion system created by the designers at Scarano Boat Building, of Albany, New York. Rather than finding a diesel-consuming engine room below decks, you find a large battery bank providing electric propulsion with smaller diesel assist-generators. If you peeled away her hull, rather than finding heavy fiberglass or steel, you’d find an extremely durable 3-layered composite: a sandwich of cedar over balsa core, laminated with an epoxy resin. Split on a horizontal plane, this light 3-layer composite makes up the upper 70% of the hull while the lower 30% is constructed of marine-grade aluminum. Furthermore, rather than a heavy wooden rig aloft, you find carbon-fiber masts, booms and gaffs. Together, these strengthening and lightening components of construction, coupled with her modernized power-sourcing, America 2.0 is provided with the ability to move through the water more effortlessly, efficiently and with minimal environmental impact.

Wreckers Race aboard Schooner America 2.0

All hands on deck! Sail aboard the Schooner America 2.0 for the monthly Schooner Wharf Bar Wrecker’s Race! Back in the days of the yore, pirate ships from afar often ran aground on Sand Key Reef, nine miles off of the southern coast of Key West. When all the scallywags in Key West heard there was booty to be had, they’d get in their boats and race each other out to the reef. The first one there could claim the ship’s cargo! Arrggh! Today, we celebrate it with the firing of the canon at 1:00pm to start the race, and all of the schooners of Key West are on their way in a one-way race to Sand Key Lighthouse!

An awards ceremony takes place at 9 PM at Schooner Wharf Bar where the winners are announced and treasures collected.
