Jericho Bay Lobster Skiff

This 15,5 foot (4,75m) vintage looking Jericho Bay Lobster Skiff, designed by Joel White is based on typical American lobster boat lines. She has flat planing sections, slightly concave bottom and tumblehome worked into the hull aft. She is essentially an open boat with small bow decking and bench seating, however, she could be fitted out in a number of ways. Boat's cockpit desing was inspired by the traditional small runabouts of the 1950s and '60s.

She has one spacious dry compartment for anchor, ropes and camping gear at the bow and two at the aft to accommodate battery and automatic bilge pump. The boat is equipped with three watertight floating sections.

Boat’s hull is made of western red cedar timber and both sides are covered with several layers of transparent glass fibre cloth. Cockpit interior is made of sapele mahogany combined with varnished and oiled trim. Only marine grade stainless steel fittings are used. All bare wood surfaces have been pretreated with epoxy.
