About the Schooner Mystic Mystic is a newly launched (2007) three-masted, gaff-rigged, square topsail schooner. She is home-ported in Mystic, Connecticut from June through September. In the winter months her sailing waters are in the Bahamas. When she changes destination areas in the fall and spring, she sails briefly in the Chesapeake Bay on her way south or north. She carries 8,500 square feet of sail in her 14 sails, including square sails on the foremast, and gaff topsails on the after two masts. Mystic is a U.S. Flagged vessel; she and her Officers are certified for Open Ocean Routes, and she carries all U.S. Coast Guard required safety equipment for those routes.
Her main deck is comfortably appointed with a beautiful main salon/dining area, and a lounge (both with wrap-around view), plus a ship's store. Mystic has wide decks for sunbathing, folding lounge chairs for the ultimate in relaxation, as well as permanent deck-box seating, full-length on port and starboard. There is plenty of room for conversation, sea gazing, reading, and even fishing. Her private double cabins all have individual climate control, viewing porthole, vanity with sink, and storage drawers. All cabins (some with double berths, and others with upper/lower berths) feature luxury mattresses and bedding. There are five shared heads (bathrooms) with sinks, and four separate shower rooms. Two extra showers are located on deck, to wash off sand and salt water.
There are two Zodiac inflatable boats to accommodate passengers in comfort and safety for shore excursions and special adventures. And Mystic also carries three inflatable double kayaks, for those who want to explore creeks, reefs, and hard-to-reach beaches.
Mystic's's gourmet chef creates amazing menus for every meal, using local specialties wherever possible. Past passengers have given Mystic's food and service rave reviews.
