Capt. Mike Johnson Invites Boats to Join the ‘Sunbeam’ Returns Parade

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: asilver@seacoastmission.org.

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:

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.

Seacoast Mission’s Sunbeam V splashes after year- long refit

Front Street Shipyard in Belfast launched Maine Seacoast Mission’s 75-foot-long telemedicine vessel Sunbeam V on Monday, after a 14-month refit.

System tests performed at the shipyard’s dock are now underway, to be followed by sea trials.

Delivery to the mission, which is relocating from Bar Harbor to Northeast Harbor, is expected by early October.

The Sunbeam V arrived at Front Street in May 2019.

The ship underwent extensive hull maintenance, cosmetic updates and equipment upgrades….

Sneak Peek – The New Sunbeam Salon

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.
