The Dirigo II was commissioned in 1939 for circumnavigation and was designed to be able to “sail in any ocean, in any weather”.  She was designed by John Alden and built in East Boothbay, Maine at the Goudy & Stevens Boat Yard. The name “Dirigo” is Latin for “I lead the way” and is the state motto of Maine. Upon her launching, she was given the state flag by the governor of Maine to fly as her own. She has since completed her circumnavigation under the hand of her second owner Jim Crawford as well as the Transpac Race in 1953.

The Dirigo II was purchased by the Lohrey Family early in 2010. Upon purchase she was taken to Ensedana, Mexico for an extensive three month total refit/restoration. After restoration she was sailed up the coast to her new home in Friday Harbor, Wa. where she began her career as the flagship of the San Juan Classic Daysailing charter fleet, owned and operated by the Lohrey Family. The Dirigo II is now available for charter from Friday Harbor throughout the San Juan Islands and Puget Sound Area.
