The schooner Appledore IV is owned and operated by BaySail, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization based in Bay City, Michigan. The schooner was originally commissioned by Herb and Doris Smith and built by Mark Treworgy. The name Appledore was chosen by Herb as a tribute to his wife whom he first saw while sailing a small boat off Appledore Island. Doris, who lived on the island, was standing in the doorway of her home as the teenage Herb sailed by on a sunny Maine morning.

Available for Day Sail.
