Newport SailingThe Adirondack IV is the newest of the Scarano boats. She arrives in Newport at the end of June after being built at the Scarano Yard in Albany, NY. She is a knockabout schooner. She will have a traditional double gaff-rig, a design which can be reefed or shortened easily as well as handled by just two crew and a captain. The great extended cockpit design, built with guests in mind, is borrowed from the ADK II design and is perfect for public trips and private charters alike.

The spars will be carbon fiber, one of the many breaks from a traditional wooden sailboat in favor of utilizing modern technology. It will only take two people to raise the 1,400’ mainsail by hand multiple times a day. She will twin engines that will help navigating the tight docking quarters at Bowen’s Wharf, as well as provide redundancy.

Adirondack IV was built, practically, for a specific dock on Bowen’s Wharf in Newport harbor where she will operate commercially. At 90’ in length she is a blend of the traditional and the modern, built by a designer and a yard that loves classic wooden boats, and is also excited by the possibilities of new technology and loves introducing people to sailing.
