History of Lowell’s Boat Shop

Established in 1793 and cited as the birthplace of the legendary fishing dory, Lowell’s Boat Shop is the oldest continually operating boat shop in the United States. As the sole survivor of the area’s renowned dory manufacturing industry, Lowell’s maintains its time-honored tradition as skilled craftsmen continue to build the dories and skiffs that were once the mainstay of the fishing industry in New England. Simple, seaworthy, economical and attractive, the dory was—and continues to be—a symbol of New England ingenuity and integrity. From the sleek Atlantic Skiff to the sturdy Surf Dory, Lowell’s line of boats represents the highest standards of craftsmanship and design.
