Development of the APBY 18′ Daysailer

January 24th, 2012|

The birth of an elegant 18' sloop with shoal draft, recounted by Tony Dias:

Arey's Pond Boat Yard is well known for the fine Catboats they produce. Tony Davis and I have wanted to work together for some time, and when this opportunity to build a sloop to fit in their line arose I jumped at the chance. Cape Cod is reknowned for its Cats, but there has also been a long tradition of handy, shoal sloops dating back at least a century. The Kingston Lobster Boat in Chappele's American Small Sailing Craft while Cat Ketch rigged, is pretty close to being an ancestral working prototype.

Our Launches Have Many Guises and Uses!

Using our 16' Lynx hull, we have built two custom launches for the Great Lakes, as well as a launch that sits on the deck of an 85' powerboat, which has a sail rig as well.
