Inspired by the old Maine salmon wherries her old world handling abilities are immediately apparent and appreciated. Our Penobscot Wherry has a rounded hull that is both double ended on the waterline (makes rowing a breeze) and has a narrow but flat bottom for easy launching and landing on the beach.
Her sweeping sheer will bring you joy every time you see her.
She is quite possibly the best fishing boat there is and also the perfect boat for rowing your cherished ones around the pond.
Her sailing performance is spirited enough to excite the experienced sailor and yet within the capability of an interested beginner by sailing well in a light breeze. With its standing lug rig which has no cables or fittings its simplicity allows one person to easily step the mast and hoist the sail with one line.
Handcrafted of high performance marine plywood and epoxy. This method assures a strong lightweight hull. Painted in your choice of color. Gunwales and thwarts in your choice of mahogany or teak. Bronze oarlocks. Comes with one pair of handmade flat blade spruce oars made by Wes Reddick of Rowers Oars.
