Abstract

An article on Maine-made vessels that are "yar," marrying elegant form to function. With descriptions of the schooner "Bowdoin," which Donald MacMillan sailed to the Arctic, and the "Malabar X," a yacht owned by Bostonian John Gale Alden, both built by Hodgdon Brothers of Boothbay Harbor; the sloop "Ranger," launched from Bath Iron Works and owned by Harold Vanderbilt, who won the America's Cup in 1937; the "Scheherazade," built by Hogdon Yachts in East Boothbay and launched in 2003 for Bill and Barbara Stewart; the "Lion's Whelp," a yacht found abandoned mid-restoration in California and restored by Phineas Sprague of Portland Yacht Services; and Sprague's latest project, the "Tar Baby," the first of John Alden's 390 schooners, which he is restoring.
