Christmas Wherry

This is Guillemot, and her builder writes:

“My Christmas Wherry is absolutely ideal for the area I live in. She sails with the slightest breeze and is quite fast, very shallow draught makes her ideal for Samphire picking (a local delicacy!). She still turns heads and is an absolute delight, although you have to watch the gybes – I try to tack instead! – I couldn’t have picked a better design, thank you.

About Us...

We've been in business here in Lincolnville Beach, Maine, since 1970.

On the map you'll find us on the shore of Penobscot Bay
about midway between Portland and Mt. Desert Island
...and in case you wondered, our company name derives from
the original name for this town.
Today, Duck Trap Village is situated within the
Town of Lincolnville.

We're primarily boatbuilders, but these days devote most of our time
to helping others build their own boats.
It's not an exaggeration to say that our plans come with free email and phone support.
