From Whetstone Boats, an 11’4″LOA, Joel White designed Shellback Dinghy. Built using the “glued plywood lapstrtake” method with the finest marine grade mahogany plywood, bronze fastenings and solid mahogany rails and knees. The sailing version will have bright spruce spars supporting a standing lug rig with an easily stoweable rudder and daggerboard.
As well as being a great looking boat, she also moves effortlessly while rowing, tows well behind larger boats and is fun and easy to sail !
Price will range from$4,600 (w/o rig) to $10,000 as a yacht quality, sail ready boat (depending on the options chosen).
This “current project” boat has recently been sold, but we would love to hear from you concerning a new build. There is still time for a summer launch!
