Tale of Two Catboats

Making a big splash at the 12th annual Boatbuilders Show on Cape Cod in February 2018, the e/XL was spotlighted in the Cape Cod Times' feature, A Tale of Two Catboats. The photo accompanying the story was taken by Steve Heaslip.

What a Runway!

Earnshaw’s, the voice of the children’s fashion and juvenile product industry for over 100 years, featured a gaggle of frolicking kids on the sturdy deck of a fire engine red Barnstable Cat Boat on the cover of the magazine's August 2017 swimwear issue. It appears from the photo that all involved loved the boat as much as we do!

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.
