USCG CertificationPassenger Vessel (Subchapter T)
Schooner Huron Jewel, a 78′ gaff rigged schooner, was designed by Captain Hugh Covert and built by he and his wife Julie in three years with the help of over fifty volunteers and launched her in June 2018. She brings together a blend of traditional and modern – traditional lines and modern building materials – to create a sleek and smooth sailing vessel that handles like a dream. Drummond Island Tall Ship Company, owned by the Coverts, offers tall ship sailing trips for the public aboard Schooner Huron Jewel in the Great Lakes and connected waterways. Her shallow draft is perfect for allowing her to cruise close to the shorelines in the Great Lakes. Enjoy high quality day sails, charters, and windjammer cruises on Schooner Huron Jewel, that also have an emphasis on the history, geography and ecology of the area. These trips offer a fun adventure for all ages to experience. We also offer weddings, a floating bed and breakfast, special events and public appearances.
