The Dory Shop

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada | (902) 640-3005 |


The famous double dory of the Banks fishery - and the size still raced on the waterfronts of Lunenburg and Gloucester - the Trawl dory can carry a one-ton payload and keep two men safe in a winter gale on the North Atlantic. For recreational boaters, the Trawl is easily rowed (generally by two people) and can accommodate both a motor well and a sailing rig (Banks dories smaller than this size do not have enough bottom length for both).
