Classic Canadian Charm Made From Steel

Who Is Joana

Joana is a 72 foot steel traditional gaffed rigged yawl built in 1973. Her lines originate from Herreshoffs Manana design and she was built in Quebec by Antonio Freire.

We purchased Joana in Prince Edward Island (Canada) in 2010 and set out on a voyage unknown. After sailing the eastern sea board and on through to the eastern and western Caribbean we arrived in the beautiful San Blas Islands (Panama), where we have been working charters with Joana for more than five years.

A Hidden Gem In Paradise

The charming interior of our classic sailboat has two cabins with double bunks, two sea bunks with privacy curtains and a drop down double bunk in the salon. Joana can comfortably fit up to 8 guests.

Spacious lounging areas on deck invite for relaxation and endless fun can be had with our wide collection of water toys. Joana tanks hold plenty of fresh water and she provides the anemety of a hot shower.
