Front Street Shipyard, Belfast, Maine
As the ‘Sunbeam’ returns to Northeast Harbor on October 2nd, I am looking for a few boats to commit to joining us in the parade.
If you (or a friend) have a boat and can join us, please let Mission Development Associate Anna Silver know. She can be reached by phone 207-801-6011 or email: [email protected].
If you find yourself free at the last minute – we would still love to have you with us.
The ‘Sunbeam’ leaves Belfast Harbor earlier in the day. The boat parade starts on the final leg of that trip and follows the ‘Sunbeam’ back home to Northeast Harbor.
Here is the parade schedule:
Friday October 2nd:
3:15PM – 3:45PM: ‘Sunbeam’ arrives near bell buoy R#8 off Cranberry Island.
3:45PM – 4:15PM: Boats assemble for parade. Capt. Mike Johnson will organizing this on VHF radio channel #71.
4:15PM: ‘Sunbeam’ and parade depart for Northeast Harbor. 4:30PM arrival.
BELFAST, ME — We had a chance yesterday to shoot some pics of the Sunbeam interior just hours before the boat was returned to the water. Finish work remains before the boat is back in service. But the whole of the Sunbeam, inside and out, looks terrific.
Here’s a shot of Mission Director of Development Chris Stelling walking through the new Sunbeam salon.

BELFAST, ME — The Sunbeam is returned to the water today, August 17, 2020. Following some sea trials, the Sunbeam will return home to Northeast Harbor, ME.
Again, our thanks to Front Street Shipyard for this July update:
SUNBEAM gets a few sunbeams on her bow for the first time in a year as she emerges from the shed.
