GLENN GEARY is one of the last of the classic sardine carriers. She is based on a traditional model of sardine carrier of which few remain today. GLENN GEARY was built by the reputable Newbert & Wallace shipyard in Thomaston, Maine in 1948. Double ended sardine carriers such as GLENN GEARY, built by Newbert & Wallace, are known for their stunning good looks, excellent craftsmanship, superb sea-keeping abilities and reliability as a "good little work boat." This well known sardine carrier worked the waters of coastal Maine under her original name - JOYCE MARIE. She was built for the famous Stinson Cannery, a herring packing company located in Maine.
GLENN GEARY is currently documented and registered as a fishing vessel and was still working up until September of 2007 when her herring career ended. She has since been cleaned out, cleaned up, and refitted at the Boothbay Harbor Shipyard in 2008.
