Specs
Builder: Ballentine's Boat Shop
Designer: Joel White


The 11'2" Shellback, a Joel White design, is a stable dinghy that can be effectively rowed, sailed or towed. This hull was built by Ballentine's Boat Shop in 2020 and never launched.

Ballentine's Shellbacks are built to exacting standards out of Sapele mahogany plywood. The seats, transom and rails are mahogany. Each boat is barrier coated and primed. The boat can then be customized to suit needs and taste. Further options at an additional cost include: Sailing package, varnished seats and transom, gunwale guard on rails, custom paint, non skid sole, etc.

This Shellback has been painted in Awl-Grip with a warm off-white and mild yellow scheme. These colors contrast beautifully with her green antifouling bottom paint. This sale includes Shaw and Tenney oars that have also been painted to match.

Easier than the big boat
The Shellback is a great option when you want to spend some time on the water, but don't have the energy or the crew for the big boat. It is easy to take out and put away. Because you have only 7" of draft you can pretty much go anywhere, you may be surprised how much you miss, even in your home harbor, just because you can't get in there.

Exercise while cruising
It is easy to get soft while cruising. Rowing is great exercise and easy to do wherever you end up. It is also a nice morning or evening ritual when you are at home. Rowing out to meet the sunset is a pleasant way to end a day wherever you are.

Entertain the kids
The Shellback is also a great outlet for the kids while you are cruising. They can go out exploring, either rowing or sailing, while you relax. Plus they will get tired out. Dinghy sailing is also a great way to teach sailing to kids.

Less legs than an inflatable
In addition to being MUCH better looking than an inflatable, it is more healthy and probably more secure. Because you row it, you are getting better exercise and protecting your hearing and experience from a noisy motor. The Shellback is also probably less likely to be stolen, it is much more distinctive and identifiable and thieves are inherently lazy, they will take the 15hp over the oars any day.
