  • Marie-Clarisse

    The schooner Marie-Clarisse.

    This sailing ship, measuring almost 40 m in length, is one of the first wooden schooners.

    Built in 1923, the Marie-Clarisse was restored many times and had numerous “careers”: fishing, cargo transportation, ship school, tour boat.  

    She is now classified a heritage object and belongs to the Musée maritime de Charlevoix.

  • Timber used for schooners

    Pine forest.

    Numerous steps were involved in building a schooner. First, the vessel’s future owners and the master carpenter carefully selected the trees to be used for timber.

    Some were chosen for their natural curved shape, others for their strength or flexibility.

    Woodcutters then felled the trees chosen and stripped off the branches so they could be transported to the shipyard.

  • The schooner Saint-André

    The schooner Saint-André at the Musée maritime de Charlevoix.

    Visiting the schooner at the Musée maritime de Charlevoix is like going back in time…to the mid-20th century.

    Built in 1956, it was classified “cultural property” in Québec in 1978.

    The schooner Saint-André was used mainly for coastal trade (goods transport) and passenger transport over short distances.
