S/V Dirigo II is a gaff-rigged topsail schooner.

She was designed by John Alden and built in 1939 at the Goudy and Stevens Boatyard in East Boothbay, Maine. Dirigo II was specifically designed  for circumnavigation and to be capable sailing in “any ocean, any weather”. Throughout her life, she has participated in many sailing adventures, races and pleasure cruises around the world, including 2 global circumnavigations. The boat is featured in a novel, “Count the Cats in Zanzibar” by Captain Jim Crawford. Dirigo II has recently undergone a complete restoration and is operated with loving care by her owners. The boat is currently welcoming guest crew for "sea training", as well as standing available for charter, all in the spectacular Sea of Cortez, Baja, Mexico.

Besides Captain and crew quarters, the boat has two private staterooms with “over and under” berths and four Pullman berths in the main salon. With her full galley, hot water shower, spacious cockpit, wide decks with high bulwarks, she is an elegant, traditional, comfortable, and sea worthy sailing vessel.
