74-foot gaff-rigged topsail sloop, Frances, was built by her Captains and crew on Portland’s waterfront. Launched in the fall of 2003, her design is reminiscent of the 1800s Maine windjammer used up and down the Maine coast for fishing and trade. Her rig is tall and elegant; her sail area and deck space impressive.
