    I follow these guys on instagram, they build drool-worthy wooden downeast boats. I really like their well outboard design in the Monomoy and they have a really beautiful 44 foot wooden downeast for sale. That outboard well design on a 26-32 fiberglass hull could be something sweet.

    Those look sweet...but, usually no price puts it in the "if you have to ask" category. next.

    If you have to ask............ ;) Gorgeous boats. Makes me think that there is some McKenzie bass boat DNA in the mix.

    Interesting how they went with Carvel planking on the bottom and switched to Lapstrake on the sides.

    But what is up with the out in the well. At least it is covered so you can't see it. But still.......why. Put an inboard under that console!!!!!

    Looks like 750K gets you into the 40 footer and heads turning wherever you go.

    Interesting setup on engine and gear.

    Shallow water beach boats for boating the flats in the area of their namesake... Monomoy. That way you can pop the cover and tilt it up so she can float off again sooner after being beached for the daily Chatham sandbar party. Nice looking boats, very cool boatyard.
