The aristocrats of their clan, Swampscott Dories were the most highly refined variant of the dory type ever made. Originally built for inshore fishing and lobstering along the coast of Massachusetts, their speed, ease of handling and seaworthiness soon made them popular as recreational sailboats. Developed when wide clear pine boards were cheap and plentiful, the Swampscott Dory had only four strakes (planks) to a side, saving labor and permitting rapid construction.
