The Tessie Ann, the Original "floating island"

Step: aboard the Island 40 and enjoy the peace, beauty and wonder of the waters of mid-coast Maine with no big boat responsibilities. No experience required. Training to operate the 15′ 4 hp skiff is included.

Imagine: Your own floating island moored in pristine Robinhood Cove. Tie up your runabout, kayaks, and canoes (or sign out Riggs Cove Rentals’ Cape Dory Typhoon for renters with sailing experience) and use the Island 40 as a base camp for your sailing, fishing and exploring passions. Our dock crew is available seven days a week in season to provide you with outboard fuel, ice, and general assistance.

Wine: and dine (and spin a yarn or two) at The Osprey or cook and eat aboard. The galley is fully equipped and there’s a rail-mounted propane barbecue grill for steaks and the freshest, finest Maine lobster anywhere.

Anniversary? Birthday? Celebration? Relaxing! Refreshing! Renewing! Adventure and Romance, Rest and Play. That’s the Tessie Ann.
