Sail Door County Adds "New" Schooner!

Sail Door County's Fleet Grows!

We met with Captain Peder Nelson and Kim, his marketing manager, and we toured the latest addition to the Sail Door County fleet: an all wooden, 63 foot schooner (double-masted) built in 1984.  This boat has sailed around the world twice,  and Captain Peder just returned from purchasing it in Massachusetts, bringing it back to Door County through the Cape Cod canal, and eventually across the Great Lakes!

What a gorgeous boat.  He will spend part of the fall and winter redoing the decks and wood, and making this boat the pride of the fleet, and the pride of commercial sailing in Door County!  We were impressed with this addition.  Peder will name this one after his grandmother, who grew up in Sister Bay not far from the marina.

You want an owner with sailing experience?  Sail Door County is for you - Peder also sailed his previous purchase back from Trinidad!

We love Sail Door County, and you will too!  Congratulations to Peder and the rest of the crew!
