The attractive dinette, opposite the galley to port (left), seats up to six adults comfortably. By night, it converts to a full-size double bed.
The spacious Main Salon (living room) provides an elegant setting for entertaining. Huge wrap-around windows flood the room with light, painting an ever-changing seascape. A sofa can be converted to a double bed, thus, the boat can accommodate up to eight people.

The Twin Villages of Damariscotta - Newcastle conveniently located only 2 min. off of the major highway, Route 1, in Midcoast Maine. Damariscotta, the 'river of many fishes' in Abernaki Indian, is named for the alewives that annually migrate the Damariscotta River and then 'climb' the amazing fish ladder at Damariscotta Mills in order to spawn in the Lake. The river is also one of the northernmost mating grounds of the primitive and marvelous horseshoe crab. And these waters support seals, ospreys, bald eagles, king fishers, great blue herons, mackerel and stripe bass, just to name a few. Humans have also worked this river for about 13,000 years. Their most famous legacy forms immense, white oyster shell mounds on the riverbanks. These shell heaps are testament to the oyster beds that once produced shellfish one foot in diameter. Today the river produces farmed oysters and mussels you can sample in local restaurants. Mazu, your boat hotel, docks at Schooner Landing Marina where you can paddle our kayaks or canoe from, along the tidal Damariscotta River to catch the magical wildlife, timeless mansions and the working waterfront of oyster farmers, lobstermen and fishermen and visit the marvelous state park, Dodge Point, and its beach. During the day you also have the option of taking an Oyster Frams & Seal Watching Tour and sample the world famous oysters with Damariscotta River Cruises, and in the evening receive a complementary drink on us during the Happy Hour Cruise. Another day maybe walk around the twin villages to shop, visit art galleries, dine in one of the fabulous restaurants or take a short sightseeing trip to the historic lighthouse at Pemaquid Point, Pemaquid Beach, and the Colonial Fort Henry Williams, Boothbay, Round Pond, South Bristol with its swing bridge. If you are up for some outlet shopping, Damariscotta is only 45 min from Freeport's L L Beans and other stores. Portland is 1 hour drive and 45 min to Rockland / Camden.
