According to the website, Captain Murphy masterfully pairs the old world marine elegance of a hand crafted, turn of the century, working wooden schooner, to the beautiful backdrop of the Long Island Sound.  He is committed to preserving the authenticity of pure sail vessels while protecting the environment as he provides passengers the most genuine, traditional wind powered sailing experience available on Long Island.
