Everything about the Sanderling is exceptional. We hesitate
to use the term, but this is a near museum quality model, at an unrealistically moderate price. If you've been browsing on the internet, you will be hard pressed to find something that represents boats that
are North American in design, and are executed as finely overall. You can spend a lot more money for so called museum quality
detailing, but you can get the same satisfaction from our new line of moderately priced high quality models.
to the Marshall 18, Sanderling, we offer a complete line of moderately priced, classic and vintage sailboat and motorboat designs. To view

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 New York. In that Gilded Age, unlimited sandbaggers with huge sail area and live ballast crew who moved from side to
side with each tack to keep the boats upright. The Marshall 18, 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.
MARSHALL SANDERLING 18: In 1962 Breck Marshall undertook an exhaustive
study to recreate the best of the catboat designs. That same year saw the first SANDERLING built, using the modern-day fiberglass materials for her hull, deck, and cabin construction. The results
have been boats enjoyed by today's families for day sailing, racing, or extensive coastal cruises. For over 30 years, The
Marshall Company's SANDERLING has been a leadrer of the industry and it is said that their quality is virtually the same as the specifications
laid down by Breck Marshall.
