|Launched in 1986 in New Zealand and named for the heroine in Paul Gallico’s book, The Snow Goose, the brigantine Fritha was built by traditional methods to unparalleled standards of excellence in materials and craftsmanship.
Brigantine Fritha’s home waters of Southern New England offer some of the most beautiful scenery and best sailing in the world. Interesting ports or anchorages such as Buzzard’s Bay, the Elizabeth Islands, Vineyard Sound, Nantucket Sound and more are only a few hours’ sail from Fritha’s home port of Fairhaven, Massachusetts. Of course, we can arrange for Fritha to meet you in places outside of her home waters as well.
With a licensed captain and professional crew, your sailing adventure aboard brigantine Fritha will create memories that will last a lifetime. Fritha can accommodate up to six passengers and is dramatically outfitted and ready to take you and your family and friends on an exciting, educational adventure.
Learn navigation, marlinspike seamanship and marine ecology and master the lost art of square rigged sailing. Your time aboard Fritha will be a rich and rewarding educational experience. After a fun sea and sun soaked day, an exquisitely appointed berth will welcome you to reflect on the experiences of the day and dream about tomorrow’s adventures.
Brigantine Fritha is owned and operated by Northeast Maritime Institute, one of the premier maritime educational institutions in the country. We look forward to designing a unique program for your time sailing with us.
