Shellback Dinghy...

Shellback sail plan

The 11'2 Shellback, a Joel White design, is a stable dinghy that can be effectively rowed, sailed or towed.

The Shellback may be ordered finished to prime paint condition or completed to a yacht standard. A sailing package is available, which may be added at a later date if desired. Details may also be adjusted based on your finishing and hardware preferences.

We first tested the Shellback as a cruising tender in a cruise to Scituate, it was there that we also had our maiden sail. We explored the shoals and inlets of the South River, then jumped over to P-town before returning to Red Brook Harbor. The Shellback served us well when we needed transportation and gave us the avenue for a leisurely sunset sail and a rigorous morning row.
