Isaac H. Evans, formerly known as Boyd N. Sheppard, is a two-masted schooner in Rockland, Maine. She is a Maine windjammer.

Isaac H. Evans was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1992.[2][3]


Isaac H. Evans is part of the Maine Windjammer fleet and member of the Maine Windjammer Association, carrying 22 adventure vacationers and ecotourists on 1-, 2-, 3-, 4- and 6-night sailing trips in Penobscot Bay, Maine. Her homeport is Rockland, Maine and her sailing grounds range from Boothbay Harbor, Maine to Bar Harbor, Maine.[4][5]


Isaac H. Evans' sparred length is 99 feet, 65 feet on deck, 20 feet at the beam and draws 6 feet with the centerboard up, and 13 feet with the centerboard down. She is a two-masted gaff-rigged topsail schooner with low sides and an elegant clipper bow, using a yawl boat for auxiliary power as one might a small tug boat to maneuver the vessel on and off the dock and when she is becalmed.[4]
