Work-in-progress boat for sale (17' dory) - $1,500 (Washington, DC)


length overall (LOA): 17
make / manufacturer: Chesapeake Light Craft
model name / number: Northeaster Dory
propulsion type: sail

Chesapeake Light Craft (CLC) 17’ Northeaster Dory with tan-bark sails & lug rig.


From CLC:  "It's small enough to be rowed by one person, but big enough for tandem rowing with two adults ... great load-carrier; 800 pounds max payload.  Hull planking is 6mm okoume; the bottom is 9mm, fiberglassed on both sides and up onto the side planking.  Bulkheads are laminated 9mm plywood.  Epoxied together, the hull is light - about 100 pounds - and strong.  Like all dories, the Northeaster tracks well, has a long glide, and stays dry in waves.  Even four adults have comfortable seating."

Initial assembly completed at CLC’s Annapolis site during a Wooden Boat School class (40+ hrs).  Hull built & glassed; seats, rudder, & daggerboard cut & sanded.  Mast has not been scarfed. 

Boat's been on sawhorses for several years now. Needs some minor assembly / fabrication work & to be refinished prior to paint. Been under a tarp at all times; epoxy has blistered due to time, no damage to marine plywood. All instruction/assembly manuals available.

Now that the weather is turning, it’s time to get this boat in the hands of someone who will finish it & get out on the water.

Car-toppable on mid-to-large car (i.e. station wagon). 

Boat currently in Washington, DC. 

Price:     $1500 (< 50% of kit cost)
