Modern Conveniences

Although Tar Baby is a classic yacht, she has been upgraded with all the modern conveniences, including hot/pressurized water, shower, three heads, shore power, refrigeration, stereo/CD player, television and VCR.

Antique Charm

Stained glass cabinets, raised panels with mahogany accents, pullman sinks, oil lamps, and even a fireplace fashioned in  brass and imported Delph tile still give you the feeling of Old World style and elegance.

Separate Crew Quarters

For the privacy of our guests, Tar Baby was designed with totally separate crew quarters in the foc'sle, with its own private head and sink.

Classic Tenders

Tar Baby sports two classic tenders, a 1912 Lawley rowing dory in mint condition, and an equally pristine power dinghy built by Consolidated in 1930.

Water Sports

Upon request, Tar Baby can carry a windsurfer or a kayak for the use of our guests.

Gourmet Meals

Our first mate is also a wonderful chef, and spectacular meals are prepared on board for your enjoyment.  Please see our Sample Menu.  Special requests or dietary restrictions are happily accomodated.

Your Captain

Thorfinn Maciver takes the helm of Tar Baby for the 2003 season with twenty years of experience behind him as a captain of  classic yachts.
