Our Boats


DOROTHEA and ELIZABETH HALL are 30’ spritsail, ketch-rigged pulling-boats. Modeled on the Sable Island surf-boats that used to transport people and gear from Tall Ships to the shores of Sable Island, Nova Scotia they are wooden boats powered by sails and oars. They are our home for the length of the trip. These boats are a traditional seaworthy design, proven safe in all conditions, fast, responsive and exciting to sail. From setting sail in the morning to dropping anchor at night, DOROTHEA and ELIZABETH HALL require teamwork.
