About Artemis, Our Sundeer 64 ketch

Your hosts aboard ARTEMIS, Deb and Rick Miles.

Artemis has sailed over 30,000 miles since 2009, up and down the East Coast, through the Caribbean and the Panama Canal, and across the Pacific, Island by Island, to Australia and then New Zealand. Our sailing charters are all custom designed for those wanting to get away from it all and spend a glorious time out on the ocean, exploring the beautiful coastline of Cape Anne and the surrounding area. We love to entertain, have fun, and serve delicious food on board. Call us and design your customer experience on our gorgeous 64-foot sailing Yacht, Artemis! We’d love to share our love of the sea and continue the Artemis adventure with you.

This site is about Artemis, a Sundeer 64 ketch.

A bulletproof blue water cruiser with 3 separate watertight compartments, she’s built to sail around the world safely, in comfort and style. She was designed by Steve Dashew and built by TPI in R.I. in 1993.

She features three cabins and two heads with showers, a walk thru galley with double refrigerators and a massive freezer, and a fabulous weatherproof pilot house for sailing in all conditions.

4 Hour Coastal Sailing Voyages. Sailing from 11-3 each day

We welcome you aboard ARTEMIS for a 4 hour voyage departing from and returning to beautiful Gloucester harbor. If you’ve ever heard the term” we’ll go where the wind takes us” well then you’ll begin to understand that our direction of sail or itinerary is based on the direction from which the wind is blowing. Whether it’s sailing down the coast to Marblehead or Salem, heading offshore to get away from land and search for marine life or working our way up to the magnificent twin Lighthouses of Thatchers Island, you will have much to see. Maybe you’ll want to learn a little about sailing a take a turn at the wheel! It seems that we’re often hungry at sea and you’ll love our yummy and healthy sandwich wraps served on deck. We will provide still and carbonated water but feel free to bring some beverage of your choice to stock in the ice chest.
