25ft Tancook Whaler, Design #227

The much loved Tancook whaler was developed as an inshore fishing vessel on the south shore of Nova Scotia about 150 years ago. It's a striking model that has appealed to yachtsmen ever since.  This one is fairly authentic in terms of size and construction.  The addition of a small cabin and an inboard engine makes it a great little boat for day sailing or weekending.
