BRECK MARSHALL: Working Catboat

Add to My Trip | View My Trip

Enjoy a sail aboard the 20-foot Crosby catboat reproduction, the Breck Marshall.

This reproduction of a Cape Cod catboat was built in the Museum’s Small Boat Shop in 1987 using the techniques developed by the Crosby family of boatbuilders at Osterville on Cape Cod. The 20-foot boat is typical of those built for fishing and for pleasure use around 1900. At Mystic Seaport, the Breck Marshall is used in the warmer months to carry sight-seeing passengers on the historic Mystic River, sailing either from Middle Wharf or from the Boathouse. She was built with funds donated by the Catboat Association and named for the late president of Marshall Marine, a catboat builder and enthusiast.
