The Amesbury Dory.
Work horse of the famed Grand Banks fisherman, this versatile and seaworthy craft was able to survive nearly everything the Atlantic Ocean could throw at it. As outboard motors became popular, the dories were adapted to accept them by retained all their best seagoing characteristics. Now they are traditional on every shore where rough water is encountered.
The Amesbury is distinguished by an unusually high freeboard, a handsome bow and graceful sheer line. It is very much at home in rough water, yet much at home in planing speeds with a minimum horsepower motor. Although the high freeboard makes it a very dry boat, the dory design allows the rail to be the easily pushed part way down to the waters edge. This made it easy for fishermen to haul nets and traps aboard. But of equal importance is the safety factor that someone in the water can haul himself back aboard without difficulty. This makes the boat ideal for swimming and skin diving.
Construction is of hand laid up fiberglass with a special "core" bottom that makes it rigid and strong. Fiberglass tanks with foam flotation run the entire length on both sides making the boat unsinkable and very stiff even without the seats. Oak rails add to the strength and give years of protection from bumps and scrapes.
Standard on all Amesbury Dory's are: varnished mahogany seats, two oar lock sockets, through bolted bow towing ring and drain hole with plug.
