In 1997 we launched the Joel White designed Boss Lady. The last few winters have seen Boss Lady back in Rockport for annual maintenance and have reminded us of what a great boat she is. The amount of enjoyment that she brings her owners per dollar spent is about as good as it gets. Boss Lady allows her owners to cruise in luxury, with a New England sensibility. Drawing on our experiences with Boss Lady, we have developed a new 40′ design. Straight forward, practical, and elegant she continues the tradition of the working lobster boats and ‘lobster yachts’ built along the Maine coast over the last century. With cedar planking on white oak frames, paint finish, and a reliable modern diesel engine she will be perfectly adapted to life along the New England coast.
