With more than forty years of experience, Maine boatbuilder Dale Cottrell, along with his son Seth, handcraft each boat with an eye for detail and the care and expertise that you expect from true genuine craftsmen.
Our shop is located just 2.5 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and the Penobscot Marine Museum, in the seafaring town of Searsport Maine.
You can see and feel the quality of our workmanship.Using centuries old traditional methods as well as modern construction techniques. These tenders have plied the waters of New England and beyond for many years and understandably so.


Different strategies for different needs both resulting in beautiful wooden boats destined to bring you many years of enjoyment on the water. Scaled down from our Maine Whitehall she has all the wonderful rowing and carrying attributes that a good Whitehall is known for,making her a fabulous tender. Originally built in the Swampscott Massachusetts boat shop of George Chaisson, these tenders are ranked with the most respected small boat designs of Herreshoff and Lawley.
There are literally thousands of these boats in use today.They have proven themselves to be stable seaworthy yacht tenders.


Perfect for the small family or the old salt who just wants to enjoy a quiet afternoon sail.
