Some of the yachts listed below are available for sale, others have been sold to avid sailors, museums, and people who are just out enjoying sailing them or displaying them to their friends.

All models can be produced to order, with any custom modifications you may be interested in. Let me know what your interests are, and I can build one just for you.

I have full construction photos of the building of the Herreshoff design "Rozinante" here if you would like to see how my yachts are created, and the attention to detail and quality of the work.

Enjoy the photos of the yachts, there's plenty to look through!

Friendship sloop - "Lady of the Lake"

"Lady of the Lake" is a radio control semi-scale scratch-built model based on the Frienship sloop "Pemaguid." The deckworks (cabin, cockpit, etc) were designed by me to give her a more yacht like appearance. Given that frinedships were working boats (fishing) the cabins tended to be small with large open cockpits to facilitate the job of catching and hauling fish. Friendships orginated in Maine during the 1880's in the Muscongus Bay area and have evolved to current day use as able yachts.
