17′ Jersey Skiff

17′ Jersey Skiff

Stable and fast, with a high carrying capacity. Designed in the mid-1800’s to be beach-launched and rowed through surf for rescue and salvage work — Whitehall meets New England Dory.

16′ Melonseed

16′ Melonseed

A refined design from the sportsman’s boat used on the bays of the Jersey Shore and the Chesapeake. Blazingly fast, the box keel tracks like a Whitehall, yet sits flat on the beach.

15′ Maine Lobster Boat

15′ Maine Lobster Boat

An excellent fishing and crabbing boat, as a small motor will get you out to that hot spot fast, yet she rows easily for a slow troll. It has a wide, flat bottom with plenty of room.

14′ Whitehall

14′ Whitehall

A classic design to row and sail. Used for work and recreation in the Harbor at the turn of the century to transport goods and people. Long waterline and flowing lines – amazingly fast for a small boat.

12′ SCAMP Microcruiser

12′ SCAMP Microcruiser

A seaworthy small craft, Scamp boasts an unusual combination of features that give her the unique ability to explore waters too shallow for a larger boat, while retaining most of the bigger boat’s comforts and capabilities.

12′ Point Defiance

12′ Point Defiance

Based on the historic salmon fishing boats that navigated the tide rips and chop at Point Defiance, WA. Tremendously versatile; it can be rowed either tandem or solo, is a delight to sail, and can easily accept an outboard motor to make an excellent fishing boat.

10′ Navigator

10′ Navigator

A great knockabout small boat, suitable for cartop transport for boating on inland lakes and the inner harbor, and also makes an excellent yacht tender. Good carrying capacity and a pleasure to row and sail.

9.5′ Captain’s Gig

9.5′ Captain’s Gig

An ideal size for a yacht tender, it is small enough to sidemount on the yacht transom, and it tracks exceptionally well for towing. One of the most stable sailboats available in a small size.

8′ Nisqually

8′ Nisqually

A lightweight boat that has good rowing qualities, sails like a champ, motors 8 knots with a 2 h.p. outboard, and safely carries 3 people and a dog. And good looks, to boot! A lot of boat in a small package.
