SUPERSCEDED!

ONE OF AMERICA'S MOST BELOVED DESIGNS

THE FAMOUS CROSBY CATBOAT
 
 
 
MODEL DIMENSIONS: 22" L x 35" H x 9 1/4" W   WEIGHT 4 lbs
Copyright 2008 - 2004, by Land And Sea Collection, All Rights Reserved
 
Here is a design that dates back to 1835 when the Crosby clan first started building boats in Osterville, MA. It is our new model of the Crosby catboat, well , a design that in one form or another has been in continuous production 170 years.
 
She 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 barndoor 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 soft ribber tipped brass 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"  
 
Everything about this model is exceptional. This is a near museum quality model, at an unrealistically low 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 line of moderately priced, high quality models.
 
In addition to the Crosby Cape Cod Catboat we offer the Marshall 18, and Beetle cats, two different sizes of the Schooner Bluenose, a Friendship sloop, Schooners Adventuress, America, Amistad in two sizes, the much admired Herreshoff's 12.5  "S" boats, and New York 30, the Schooner Adventuress, J Class Rainbow, Endeavour, Enterprise, Shamrock, each as full models or half hulls, and  also the three masted lumber Schooner WAWONA and Sparkman & Stephen's ocean racer Dorade, yawl Odyssey, and Concordia yawl. In motor vessels look for the Garwood Speedster, and a classic 1920 motor yacht.
CATBOAT HISTORY: Catboats started out as workboats. According to marine historian Howard I. Chapelle, beamy, single-sailed centerboarders 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 “sandbaggers” 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 barndoor 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 boatbuilding 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.
