A professionally hand crafted, large size, high quality model of the New England Cat Boat, for a very moderate price!
Presented is a design that dates back to 1835 when the Crosby clan first started building boats in Osterville, MA. It is our detailed model of the Crosby catboat a design that in one form or another has been in continuous production for 170 years. The display ready model is built using the same quality plank on bulkhead construction as are all our models. And you will see she is a perfect reproduction of this great class. The Crosby Cat joins our fleet of the Marshall 18, and Beetle catboats and is a standout example of famous American designed vessels for which we are noted.

The model features a beautifully shaped hull with plumb bow and huge barn door rudder hung off the transom, glistening in white enamel, and red bottom paint. Her mast, boom and gaff sparkle in varnish. Decks and cabin are painted tan to look like the canvas used on the real boats, The rigging is authentic down to the last block. Mounted on four wood finials and varnished wood base, she makes an incomparable model. A perfect addition to your home, den or office.

Modeled after a small catboat, 1" = 1'. she is a big model. 22" overall, 35" tall (base to the top of mast) with a beam of 9 1/4"

This is a near museum quality model, at a moderate price. In addition to the Crosby Cat, we offer a complete line of classic and vintage sailboat and motorboat designs. To view them all on one page, go: http://landandseacollection.com/id246.html

CATBOAT HISTORY: Catboats started out as
work boats. According to marine historian Howard I. Chapelle, beamy, single-sailed center boarders with half-decked hulls and barn door rudders began to appear in America around 1840, when, for the first time, there was sufficient demand to make fishing from small boats profitable. Sailed mostly in Lower New York Harbor and on Cape Cod Bay, cats fished, freighted, ferried, and packeted for decades. Their simplicity, stability, and shallow draft made them versatile, and their efficiency and ease of handling made them popular. In the 1880s and ‘90s, catboat racing flourished, especially around Cape Cod and New York. In that Gilded Age, unlimited “sand baggers” with huge sail area and live ballast crew who moved from side to side with each tack to keep the boats upright. The Crosby Cat has that same expansive sail area for her short length and large barn door rudder which helps her from heading up in a fresh breeze.

BRIEF HISTORY: BRIEF HISTORY: The Crosby Yacht Yard was a Osterville mainstay long before the Wianno Seniors came about. The current business has been in operation since 1850, but boat building goes back more generations than that. Jesse and Daniel Crosby learned the trade in the late 1700s from their father who had a business in Centerville, according to Wooden Boat Magazine. The Crosby Catboat was introduced in1798. It was a hit first as a fishing vessel, then as a fine sailing experience. The family name and reputation spread. At one time there were five different boat shops with varying Crosby connections. Oyster Harbors Marine was once known as Chester A. Crosby & Sons. Except for Chester Crosby-Oyster Harbors Marine, the other four later came together under what is now known as Crosby Yacht Yard. It was the largest boat yard in Osterville and among the biggest business in town.
