We offer unique 3 - 6 day All-Inclusive, Maine sailing adventures. Secret Maine refers to the sights, islands and coves you can only access and experience by water. 

We set off by wind and whim. This makes each trip a singular adventure, rich with fine sailing, delicious food, comfy cabins and amazing scenery. 


With Maine's remote islands, small villages and renowned sailing waters, your experience aboard this National Historic Landmark will be exceptional.

 

Even when we anchor, you can keep exploring in one of our small boats.

 

This three-masted schooner is the last of its kind in the world. Your experience will be unique, memorable and immersed in the history and charm of this great ship.

An Experience Not to be Missed

"We boarded the boat for a four day cruise around the islands near Rockland, ME; Nothing could have been better.

 

The boat was immaculate, the food was incredible, and the crew were great. We've sailed around Maine before, but this experience was the best ever."

Adventure

Victory Chimes is a regal, true piece of history. She's designated as a historical landmark and plies Maine's bays with stately grace and a cheery presence. 

 

With 6'7" ceilings, refined bedding, hot showers and provided accoutrements, you will feel right at home while being transported away.

Victory Chimes is the largest passenger sailing vessel under the USA flag, yet she accommodates just 40 guests. This means you won't be stored like cargo, but pampered like houseguests.

We love her, and you will too!

Relaxation

Cuisine

The elemental nature of daily life aboard Victory Chimes is wonderfully ripe with beauty and light, scenery and socializing, quiet time and excitement.

You'll lounge on deck, sightsee without getting up, read, snack, nap, socialize and chill deeply. 

Sunrises are often magical, with coves draped in mist gilded by the day's first light, and sunsets are often stunning and emotional. 

Victory Chimes is large enough to always have your privacy and cozy enough to have everything right nearby. Your cruise will be memorable and relaxing.

When you're on a ship for days, you better have good food - and we do!

Good food makes every day aboard into a lasting memory.

 

Remember that family style 

lobster dinner? You will. And those pancakes, plumped with Maine Blueberries? You don't want to miss them.

We provide impressive meals, snacks, desserts and spoiling equal to the passing beauty of Maine's renowned coast.

With food so good, and a boat so charming, you will feel quite spoiled as we experience the Maine coast. 

As an evening punctuation to the day's adventure, we often feature live acoustic music. We call it Sea Great Music.

Sailing and song have gone together since crews hauled ropes in rhythm and sang to pace their work.

 

Like the 'Chimes herself, all the music is without power.

Each night of these cruises, after dinner, in the afterglow of sunset, we get to hear the pure sounds of voice and instrument, as elemental as wind and sail. 

 

Imagine hearing wonderful acoustic music while we're anchored in a secluded Maine cove, as the evening sky blushes into the blue of  dusk; it's magical.

The lobster, the mussels... the freshly made fishcakes... I could go on and on. Fresh fruits and delightful salads were served with every meal, along with home made and still warm, breads, scones, biscuits and desserts!
