|In 1983, Maine native Mike Severance purchased a strip
planked 14' row boat he found in an old barn just off the
Piscataqua River, Maine's western boundary. The boat
had very traditional lines but was in very bad shape.
The Maine boat builders he asked to repair the boat
suggested that they could also make a fiberglass mold and
reproductions of this beautiful pulling boat. These
boats could be sold to help pay for the original boat's
repair costs. Thus the start of the Piscataqua Wherry
and Bay of Maine Boats.
Today, Wherry's can be found in the Bahamas, and from
Florida to Nova Scotia, Texas, Wisconsin, Minnesota,
Tennessee, and just about every state in between
||These rugged & sturdy Maine made boats are ideal for
men, women, and children. Many uses include learning
boating and seamanship skills, recreation, and all around
All Bay of Maine Boats have been designed to exceed
traditional standards for performance, durability, appearance,
and safety. If the boat should swamp, it will support
you in the water until help arrives.
