Our Story

Sailing Saugatuck is a family owned business located in southwest Michigan. Established in 2010, we have become one of the areas leading charter businesses. We take pride in offering a high quality, laid back, unpretentious and unique sailing experience to every guest that sails with us.

The Boat

Schooner Serenity is a two-masted gaff-rigged schooner designed by Tom Colvin and built by Custom Steel Boats in Arapaho, NC. She features two cozy cabins and a charming teak accented deck. She was originally built as a cargo schooner but was eventually converted to a passenger vessel to begin her new adventure as a chartered schooner in historic Yorktown on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.

2019 marks her first year sailing the Great Lakes from her new home port in Saugatuck/Douglas.

A Few Reasons To Sail With Us

Small group size.  Groups are limited to just twenty-five passengers so you’ll have plenty of space to spread out once we set sail.

BYOB. Many of our guests bring a bottle of wine or a 6-pack to enjoy while on the lake. We also have an ice filled cooler on board for you to keep your beverages cold.

Comfort and safety.  Schooner Serenity is outfitted with all essential safety gear. We are also certified by the United States Coast Guard and do regular inspections to make sure everything is in top shape.

Flexibility.  Pitch in and help handle the sails or just kick back, relax and enjoy the scenery.  Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first-timer, our crew will help ensure a memorable experience for your entire group!
