The Dory Shop

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada | (902) 640-3005 |


The traditional one-man dory from the days of the Grand Banks schooner fishery, the Handline is our best-selling boat and we absolutely know why. At 17 feet, these dories can be rowed alone or with a partner, they are big enough to handle a motor well and they also make a fun sailing boat. What more do you need?
