Sail with Mike and Gloria

Maine has some of the most beautiful coastline found anywhere in the world and to see it from the ocean is a wonderful experience. We offer a range of pre-scheduled and custom sailing trips aboard our beautiful 46-foot sailing yacht.

“Cotinga” was built in 1999 by the world renowned Morris Yachts in Southwest Harbor, Maine. She is designed to be a rugged ocean going yacht and with her former owner has crossed the Atlantic twice and competed in numerous Newport to Bermuda races.

Gloria and Mike, are former research scientists now embarking on a whole new career. We have over 20 years of sailing experience, including having sailed the entire coast of Maine in a 16ft sailboat and now both of us hold Masters licenses. We bought “Cotinga” in the spring of 2012 and spent the following year living aboard and sailing from Maine to the Bahamas and back. During the off-season we live in Massachusetts where Mike also works as a professional photographer. We love the coast of Maine, the beautiful scenery and fabulous wildlife, and our aim is to give every customer a wonderful trip that they will always remember
