We’re happy to announce that we’re going to be at this year’s Anacortes Boat Show featuring Trawlerfest, May 18-20 2023! It’s been a few years since we’ve been there, so we’re excited to be visiting folks up in the north sound and bringing a few of our small-to-medium sized rowing and sailing dinghies with us. If you’re in the San Juans or North Sound and have been looking for a beautiful, classic yacht tender to use as a fun ship-to-shore vessel, or a fun standalone rowboat or daysailer, this is a must-see event.
Our rowing and sailing dinghies make great tenders for yachts of any size.
A classic dinghy makes a beautiful companion for a yacht. The traditional lines complement any design, and we can customize colors or trim to coordinate with your mother ship as well.
Our dinghies row and sail beautifully. Rowing around the harbor after you arrive at your destination is one of the most peaceful and rewarding parts of the journey, in our opinion! And if you want to take advantage of some nice breezes when opportunity strikes, the quick and fun sail rig can be set up and launched in mere minutes.
All of our dinghies are compatible with outboard motors. A 2hp outboard is all you need to reach hull speed — it’s an extremely fuel-efficient way to get around from ship to shore.
We’ve built hundreds of yacht tenders and are highly experienced in customizing our dinghies for mounting to a mothership. We offer built-in lifting eyes for suspension from davits (with or without a spreader bar), or reinforcement into the sheer for swimstep/sidemount davits.
Top it off with our legendary reputation for high quality boats built to stand the test of time, and it’s a win-win all around! Learn more about our legendary yacht tenders here on YouTube.
Catch our limited-time Boat Show Specials!
We’ll have some boatshow specials on offer, details to be revealed at show opening. We’ll be exhibiting on shore in the plaza right above the dock entrance, so you can’t miss us!
Since we’re focusing on our tenders at this show, we’ll have our boats 12 feet and under with us: the 12′ Point Defiance, 10′ Navigator, 9.5′ Captain’s Gig (and possibly the 8′ Nisqually, if she can fit in our space). Stop by and see us and make a day of it with the family! Feel free to reach out and contact us if there’s something in particular you’d like to see at the show.
