10’2″ Lawley Yacht Tender

The original design of this pretty boat is from the boatyard of George F. Lawley & Sons of Neponset, Massachusetts, circa, 1920. From 1866 to 1945, the Lawley yard produced many large yachts and the tenders to go with them.

   This is a lapstrake boat with each plank overlapping the previous plank, and the overlapped seams are epoxied together resulting in a very strong, always watertight joint. Because of the high strength of the epoxy adhesive, the entire hull is effectively one piece producing a strong, lightweight boat (think of an eggshell) that does not need the internal frames of a traditional lapstrake boat. The interior is clean and uncluttered.

   The planking is made from okoume marine plywood and the gunwales, stem and transom are made from sepele mahogany.

Length: 10’2”       Beam: 48”         Weight: 81 lbs.
