22′ Custom Amesbury Skiff “Tuckernut”


Located: Florida

TUCKERNUT is a 21’10” Custom DownEast Skiff.  The hull is cedar lapstrake over oak and the cockpit is trimmed in teak and mahogany.  The cabin has two single berths and forward storage.  Finished “Herreshoff-style” with white ceiling and varnished wood work and detailed carved accents, the cabin feels larger than typical and is a pleasure to be in. She was the last boat of its type built by Lowell’s Boat Shop, Amesbury Massachusetts.  Over the past eighty years the Lowell Amesbury Skiff, the inspiration for the TUCKERNUT, has earned a reputation for being an exceptionally stable, seaworthy, and rugged boat.  An adaptation of the Surf Dory, it was initially developed for inboard power and is now modified to take advantage of today’s high-powered, lightweight outboard engines.  The hull is flat-bottomed with flared, rounded, lapstrake sides, making these boats surprisingly dry and easy to maneuver. An early slogan was, “She’ll get you home in weather you had no business going out in!” TUCKERNUT  is currently powered with a 90 HP Evinrude E-tech that has fewer than 10 hours since it was completely serviced. The engine sits forward of the transom in a well.  There are 4 permanently mounted and individually linked 9 gallon gas tanks. She cruises comfortably at 16-18 knots with a maximum speed of 30 knots.  She has a bimini top and a custom designed full canvas enclosure, comprised of 6 individual panels with isinglass and zippered screens, making her suitable for all manner of weather.   Auto-pilot and trim tabs make for easy cruising.
