Meet your Schooner...True Love

Our History, Your Memories

With a rich history that began with her being commissioned in 1925, True Love has sailed the deep blue water of the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, many winding rivers, and canal systems prior to finding her current home in the heart of the Finger Lakes at the Seneca Harbor Park Pier in Watkins Glen, NY.

Those who sail on this truly majestic schooner on the waters of Seneca Lake will feel as if they have fallen in love all over again.

True Love has a storied past. From her hosting famous people in the 1930’s, to her sailing in the Virgin Islands for over 40 years, to her place in Hollywood, the True Love is ready to make memories for you as well.

Regardless of the occasion, True Love can make your event a memorable one. Whether you choose to enjoy a casual sail with others, charter a private tour, or you want to make True Love a part of your special day, we’re here to make every moment incredible.
