Ernest Hemingway Classic 20: A handful of craftsmen in a small boat shop, taking the time and care to daily craft legendary, uniquely timeless custom skiffs, one-at-a-time, for the most discerning owners... Welcome to our world.
We craft our boats in a 100% infused, Divinycell foam cored, Kevlar (carbon fiber available), vinylester resin composite construction. This infusion process — not to be confused with simply “vacuum bagging” — results in increased strength, reduced weight, and a completely bonded, one-piece part free of voids and other structural defects. We then add to this cutting-edge technology by mechanically and chemically bonding our top deck, hull, and console. Add the finest hardware and components and mount them in such a way that access for all maintenance is readily available for every system and element. Follow up with attention to detail… building your boat to your very own individual, discriminating preferences -– meeting all your own specific requirements — and the result is an incomparable product.
