“A small sailing craft is not only beautiful, it is seductive and full of strange promise….”

DREAM ISLAND TENDER

She was designed primarily as a fully functional rowing & sailing boat for young people, but could also serve proudly as a ship-to-shore tender for a larger boat. She’s about 8 feet long and 4 feet in the beam amidships (plenty of reserve buoyancy), and features two gear compartments under the middle seat, two watertight flotation compartments, scuppered inwales for a traditional look, and a weighted daggerboard for a bit of extra stability under sail. This build has just started – March 2020 – and I plan to complete it within 2-3 months. If you have any questions about this boat, please feel free to email me: wmbatesdesign@gmail.com .
Happy Sailing!
