Marshall Marine Launches the Sakonnet 23

Last winter Marshall Marine of South Dartmouth, MA acquired the molds to the Joel White designed Sakonnet 23 from Edey & Duff who closed their doors after many years of building fine boats (including the Stuart Knockabout, the Doughdish and the Stone Horse). The first Sakonnet 23 surfaced from the Marshall Marine shop in April 2011 after a longer winter of fine-tuning the molds.

Marshall Marine, well-known for their Marshall Catboats, have been building boats for nearly fifty years. Said Kristen Marshall “Although she is not a catboat, she is clearly a classic looking shoal draft daysailer that we think complements our boats well”. With a cockpit that can easily accommodate 6 adults, her sleek double ended design and graceful shear along with the fact it draws only 1’10” with the centerboard up, the Sakonnet 23 looks to be a great addition to the Marshall Marine fleet.

The Sakonnet 23 will certainly look good sailing around Padanaram harbor, out in Buzzards Bay or just about any other harbor we can think of.
