Dragonfly is a unique, one-of-a-kind sailboat made in 1997/1998 by a master craftsman using the finest of materials.
Dragonfly is an elegant, classically designed, gaff-rigged sailing dinghy (cat boat) patterned after small sailboats of the late 19th Century.
Dragonfly is a beautifully hand-crafted boat. She was lovingly built indoors over two years (1997/1998). Every detail has been considered, designed for use but always with beauty. The original cast bronze ‘fish’ cleats, and brass fittings add a level of class and prestige to her decks.
