The Chesapeake Heritage Conservancy has preserved the working Skipjack Martha Lewis to share and keep alive the lore of America's last sailing oyster fleet. As with all wooden workboats Martha requires a gat deal of maintenance which sometimes interferes with her sailing schedule but any visit, whether under sail or at the dock, will leave the quest with a deeper...

Great old wooden sailboat. I highly recommend getting a group of people together and going on the Martha Lewis. This boat is a classic skipjack. I rented it for my husbands 50th birthday and we had a great time. Highly recommend making an appointment, we had a group of 30 and could not have had a better time !

Took relatives out on the skipjack before we went to dinner. They loved it. It was about 1 & 1/2 hour trip and very pleasant. Just wish they would have given some information about skipjacks. The men enjoyed hoisting the sail.

A wonderful evening - perfect weather, tasty Margaritas, and knowledgeable crew. If you are looking for a fun evening and want to do something different this is for you! They... More

While visiting friends in the area, my children and I went out for a sunset cruise on the Martha Lewis. I had always wanted to go sailing, and the experience was amazing. The passengers helped to raise the sail, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The crew is very friendly. One of my favorite pictures from the trip shows my son, who... More

The Martha Lewis is a v-bottom, two sail bateau built in MD in 1955 (so says the brochure). She is one of the few remaining working dredge boats that make up the Chesapeake Bay oyster fleet, and the last to fish commercially under sail in the US. The deck is 49' long and the beam 16.5' - so she is... More
