Auxiliary Fishing Schooner "Evelina M. Goulart", Essex Shipbuilding Museum, 66 Main Street, Essex, Essex County, MA



Significance: The EVELINA M. GOULART is an example of what is sometimes called a "transitional schooner." These vessels bridged a gap during a period of transition in the history of shipbuilding in America from sail to power. Transitional schooners were neither sailing fishing schooners nor fully powered fishing draggers but an intermediate combination of the two. The end of the working sailing fishing schooners and the beginning of a new era of mechanized fishing draggers began with the construction of the first transitional schooners.
