Sales of donated and shop-built boats directly support the Apprenticeshop and all its programs.
Every apprentice that comes through our doors begins their education in boatbuilding by building a Susan Skiff. These pleasing flat bottom skiffs row like a dream.
We always have skiffs under construction or ready for a new home. Please inquire with us for current availability.
Cost: $1750, add $250 for a set of handmade oars.
This 17’ cat-rig ketch was built in 2007 by Time Schlieff. The hull is lapstrake, constructed with sapele plywood. The frames are made of black locust. It was donated to the shop in 2015 and is in excellent condition.
