Goat Island Skiff

Harbor Woodworks offers custom kits and boats, tailored to your specifications and desired level of completion. We ship to the U.S. and Canada.

The Goat Island Skiff is a brilliant combination of simplicity and competence. Slightly overcanvassed, in the Australian fashion, it can be sailed fast and hard - if you're so inclined. With a reef or two in, even a moderately competent skipper can manage quite brisk conditions. It is very light weight, which makes it both fast and easy to handle ashore. The simplicity also makes for a quick build and a remarkably inexpensive kit for the high level of boat one ends up with. I own one of these myself, and love it.
