The catboat-as most of us know it-came to life in 1962, when Breck Marshall did something few boatbuilders had yet done-he began producing catboats in fiberglass. After a long time modeling the boat-there were no drawings from which to work-Marshall and his foreman constructed what they thought looked like the perfect catboat. The new fiberglass Sanderling had a strong sheer, crowned cabin and an underbody more modern than most traditional catboats.
We were fortunate on our review sail to experience a variety of wind conditions-from nearly dead calm to a steady breeze.


The slightest push kept the Sanderling moving along, and it's no wonder-she shows 253 square-feet of Dacron above a 2200-pound displacement (For comparison use the 2000-pound Cape Dory Typhoon which carries 160 sq.
Remember that catboats were originally designed to function without the use of auxiliary power. The extreme beam and high-quality construction are enough to inspire tremendous confidence in the Sanderling. The traditional nature of the design means there is slightly more wood to keep an eye on, but quality and durability are first rate.


The heavily-glassed hull and deck are glued and through-bolted with stainless bolts at the mahogany rub rail.
