CASSIOPEIA is a newly built two station rowing wherry. She rows wonderfully and has the classic wherry shape. She has just been finished to a very high standard by long-time small boat builder Robert Matey. She is constructed for ease of maintenance and durability using glued okume ply lapstrake with ash structural pieces and mahogany trim. Two sets of Shaw & Tenney hardwood-tipped spoon blade oars are included.
Offered at $7,200.
CASSIOPEIA is currently located in Corea, Maine.
