Stephen Taber Cruise Review by MA Chair

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2020
  • Destination: the USA

Are you crazy about old wooden boats? Does the thought of hauling lines, coiling and splicing, weighing anchor, polishing brass, and scrubbing decks set your heart singing? Well, this is the boat for you! On the other hand, if you prefer to lounge in a deck chair and drink wine and watch as others do all the work and the clouds stream by, this is also the boat for you!

This was our third trip on the Stephen Taber and I can't say enough how wonderful the experience is. The crew and captain are fabulously accommodating and will let you do as much or as little sailing as you like. The food is second to none- you will scratch your head wondering how such a cutting-edge culinary feast can be prepared solely on a wood burning cast iron stove in a tiny galley kitchen. The scenery is likewise amazing- rugged craggy islands, bald eagles, porpoises right off the bow wave, and even the rain is punctuated by an occasional rainbow.

Cabin Review

Are the cabins small? Yes! They are. Do you need to get down a ship's ladder to access them? Yes, you do! This is a true historic wooden boat. Take that into account. However, even at 40 degrees with wind and rain, we were toasty warm with our comforters and wool blankets.
