Cape Cod Catboat | An American original. The catboat has been recognized as one of the true American boats. Its most successful version was developed for the difficult fishing and lobstering conditions along Massachusetts’s Cape Cod. They worked as much as 30 miles offshore in shallow waters with strong tides. They had to be shoal draft, fast, seaworthy, weatherly, and inexpensive. It was a tall order…but the catboat did it all and more. Catboats exist today as popular yachts. Our plank on bulkhead model, with laser cut basswood and mahogany parts, is a fine example of this purpose developed boat. It is important to note that some pictured items may have been built with optional items not included as part of standard kits, such as pedestals, bases, cases, paint, etc. If there are any questions about the contents of a particular kit, please contact Bluejacket.
