Stories from the The Dory Shop


Are you ready to get out on the water this summer?

While we generally build-to-order, we do have a few rowing dories, a Nutshell pram and one of our popular Cross Island skiffs in stock and ready-to-go!

Hooray for Santa Claus!

The historic port of Lunenburg has a unique way of welcoming the holiday season. Like many communities, the town hosts a Santa Claus parade, but there’s something that makes ours just a little bit different. The parade here has a boat theme; specifically, parade organizers seek to place as many of the entrees as possible in dories and other wooden boats. As you can imagine, we tend to get a few calls!
