Our own tour boat, The Ruth, is the center of much harbor activity and has been delighting our guests since her launch in 1935. She was built by Handy Boat in Falmouth, Maine and is 38 feet overall, with a beam of 10 feet and a draft of 4 feet. Powered by a 135 horsepower Ford diesel engine, she cruises at a ladylike and very comfortable 8 knots, allowing her 29 passengers to enjoy the scenic beauty and wildlife of the Maine Coast.
The Captain of The Ruth is Phil Luedee. While growing up, Phil spent every summer at Sebasco, messing around in just about every kind of boat he could find. As a small boy he would wait on the dock with the other Sebasco kids and hope that the next Ruth trip would not be full so they could hitch a ride aboard. Phil has extensive experience with the waters surrounding Sebasco and would be delighted to have you aboard The Ruth for a cruise. When Phil isn't skippering The Ruth, he can be seen sailing with guests on his 41' sailboat, Magic, through the local waters. The Magic makes regularly scheduled excursions and is also available for charter. *NOT DISPLAYED*
