" I can’t recommend a sail adventure on the Frayed
Knot highly enough! We had such an incredible trip with
Captain Claude and Judy and it was an amazing way to see
and explore beautiful New England. The Frayed Knot is a first class ship, and Claude is a master captain – a supremely knowledgeable and skilled sailor and also a gifted and willing teacher. From the moment we stepped on board we felt totally comfortable and at ease. Our sailing trip was definitely a highlight of our vacation. "
- Richard Goldman / Los Angeles, California
" We have sailed on the Frayed Knot with Captain Claude for 4-day cruises out of Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts for several years in a row. We wouldn’t consider anyone else... the boat is beautiful – pristine, with all first class comforts.Claude is the best – a terrific captain with 35 years experience sailing in all kinds of weather (and when the weather is perfect, there is nothing like it nothing!). Wife Judy is terrific too; an able first mate and a really fun person! This is a gift you deserve – so much fun, so relaxing, and almost decadent. You don’t have to do a thing other than enjoy! "
" During my annual summer visits to the North Shore of Boston,
I have enjoyed the privilege of sailing aboard the Frayed Knot
captained by Claude Beaudet. Claude is the consummate
professional whose expertise, experience and skills, is
second to none and provide a safe experience for
everyone. His welcoming approach with all of us who are
fortunate enough to share the beauty of the New England
coastline, allows us to sit back and savor this magical journey.
I already am looking forward to sailing on the Frayed
Knot with Captain Claude again next summer."

" Our 3 day trip was unbelievable - what an experience!
Living aboard Frayed Knot was truly a pleasure and
not feeling as if you were on a boat! Captain Claude and
wife Judy were so hospitable, accommodating and fun while
sailing or at the dock. Being able to experience this voyage
on the water clearly exceeded my expectations and not
to be missed. I would highly recommend this charter
to everyone. Definitely 5 Stars!! "

aboard the Frayed Knot to celebrate our anniversary. Perfect

"I would trust Captain Claude Beaudet with my life, in any type of sailing vessel from a small sailboat from where he started his dream over 30 years ago to now, the magnificence of his Frayed Knot. His competence, focus, and love of the open seas is incomparable. As a family we have sailed with Claude and first mate, Judy each summer when on Cape Ann, and to have witnessed their dream come true is wonderful!"

" I wanted to let you know what a lovely time we all had on your
charter. Thank you for allowing Alex to steer, and
instructing him so patiently and well. It really gave
him a lot of confidence to take the helm, and I appreciate
your encouragement and confidence in him to do so!
You have a beautiful vessel, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our
day on the water. You made it enjoyable, exciting, and fun!
I can't think of a better way to spend the afternoon than
on a sail with you and Judy. If I return to Manchester next summer, I would love go out again! "

through Boston Harbor aboard The Frayed Knot! I can't
thank Captain Claude enough for helping make this a perfect and
unforgettable moment for us."
