Quality Craftsmanship and satisfaction are


Amesbury Skiff
This beautifully hand-crafted miniature skiff is a reminder of the days before fiberglass, when the pride of boat builders was evident in the small dinghies and skiffs that did the yacht tending and other tasks along the coast. The flat-bottomed skiff was more practical for beaching than the fancier round bottom crafts. With its flaring sides and slightly rocketed bottom, the full sized boat rowed easily and towed with a minimum fuss.

Peterboro Canoe
Peterboro Canoes were the classic canoe, built in the glory days of canoe building at the turn of the century in Peterborough, Ontario. They brought the delight of canoeing to the public, and also the famous…1948 a Peterboro Canoe was presented to Queen Elizabeth as a wedding gift, and Teddy Roosevelt took a Peterboro Canoe down the Amazon River in Brazil. They have been paddled in every corner of the globe.

Peapods, which evolved as Maine workboats are believed to have appeared first about 1880. They were commonly used for lobstering, clamming and waterfront work where a larger boat could not go. Peapods, even heavily loaded, were extremely seaworthy and are comfortable in conditions that would make others in boats wish they were ashore. So stable, a fisherman could row standing up or put a foot on the gunwale to haul in a lobster pot.

Crabbing Sailer
This fine model is indicative of the crabbing skiffs that were used in the bays up and down the East coast from Cape Code to Maryland in the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s. The flat bottom was characteristic of a crabbing sailor design with a retractable centerboard and shallow draft, ideal for coastal waters. Its basic design made it possible for a single sailor to operate.

Large Amesbury Skiff
This is a larger scale model of the Amesbury Skiff featured above, measuring 20” for impressive display. The Amesbury Skiff was built along the North Shore of Massachusetts about 100 years ago. Thousands were made of this world famous design for Grand Bank schooners, the Army and Navy and pleasure boaters. It’s extremely sturdy and rowable, as it would not capsize in the roughest of seas.

Lincolnville Wheary
A wherry (meaning “boat”) was traditionally used for carrying cargo or passengers on rivers and canals in England. The Lincolnville Wherry was later developed for Atlantic salmon fishing in the late 1700’s or early 1800’s. It is ideally suited for working in surf on and off shore. Wherry’s were never moored; their lapstreak planking enabled the craft to stand upright when beached, making launching easy and protecting the planking from abrasion.
