For the first time in decades, there are schooners 'abuilding on the famed waterfront at Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada. Dawson Moreland & Associates are building not just one, but two 48' wooden schooners in the best of Maritime traditions. These 'twins' will be built simultaneously, frame for frame, plank for plank, alongside the historic Lunenburg Dory Shop at 175 Bluenose Drive. Follow their progress from keel laying to launch!

Holiday wishes from Lunenburg Schooners

The boatyard is still today and covered in white after our first big snowfall, the gang all gone home to celebrate Christmas with their families and friends. As the big wet flakes fell, muffling all noise save the call of the fog horn and the softest lap of waves upon the piles, there seemed complete peace in our corner of the world.
As we pause to mark the holidays, we hope all those who are our friends, clients and followers may also enjoy a quiet moment, as well as great joy and hope for the year ahead.
