Our Barnstable Cat Graces the Lands' End Cover

When Lands' End wanted a classic sailboat for its Summer "Sale" catalogue, they featured our Howard Boats' Barnstable Cat Boat. How better for one of the world’s most recognizable fashion brands -- now synonymous with timeless American style but originally founded in 1963 by an avid sailor as a yachting supply company -- to capture its corporate ethos in a singular cover shot!

Boatbuilder and Master Craftsman Makes a Splash

This Zen-like master bath, featured in New England Home, provides a new venue for the woodworking talents of Howard Boats' Peter Eastman. The iroki-wood tub is the focal point of designer Alison Kripke's bath composition. The tub sits at one end of the long space in front of a tall wall of Ann Sacks slate tile. Porcelain sinks in matching vanities echo the tub's shape.
