Harbor Cat

Prepare to meet the newest member of the Crosby catboat family — the Crosby Harbor Cat. Built by the same company that created the catboat genre in the 1850s.

Shipwrights at the Osterville yard are now building an authentic reproduction of a classic wooden Cat Boat that Crosby Yacht Yard first designed and built back in 1937.

To ensure historical accuracy, the mold for our modern Crosby Harbor Cat was actually taken from one of the original wooden models, originally called the Oyster Harbors Cat Boat. We wanted the lines and appearance of the reproduction to be identical in all aspects for this traditional daysailer.

Originally built in oak and cedar, our boats are still handcrafted today, now with maintenance-free fiberglass and the best innovations in boatbuilding. Every boat is unique since all our catboats are made to order with renowned New England craftsmanship.
