Serenity in Yorktown

Serenity Specifications

The Serenity is a two-masted gaff-rigged schooner designed by Tom Colvin and built by Custom Steel Boats from Arapaho, NC, in 1986.   She was built as a cargo schooner and was converted to a passenger vessel.  She had been neglected and sat idle in Morehead City, NC, until the spring of 2000 when Greg and Laura Lohse purchased her and brought her to Cape Charles on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.  She was in need of a major refit so Greg and Laura spent the next few years renovating and upgrading the vessel.   Serenity is currently USCG certified to carry 29 passengers for day sails.
