A change in programming plans at a Nova Scotia summer camp has resulted in the availability of a big, beautiful Banks sailing dory at an incredible price.
Built in 2011, the boat measures 17 feet on the bottom, 22’ 2 overall with a beam of 6’ 4.5 – so one of our Fortune Bay dories – and is outfitted with both a motor well and a gaff jib and main sailing rig.
She also has four thwarts and eight oarlocks for team rowing, a rudder with tiller for sailing or rowing with a coxswain, a centerboard to help keep her on course and four sets of oars.
The boat was used just two seasons at a site on the Northumberland Strait, was stored indoors during the winter and has been well cared for. The discovery of some bottom damage last fall resulted in a complete rebuild of the boat’s bottom by The Dory Shop, followed by fibreglassing, as well as an application of anti-fouling paint of the new bottom and garboard planks for added protection.
The boat is currently here at Lunenburg where she can be viewed by appointment. This truly is a rare chance to get an almost-new sailing dory at a great price. For more information, including asking price, please contact Susan at The Dory Shop 902 640-3005.
