With some sadness and much gratitude for our blessings we inform you that we are only building one more dory...EVER. We have enjoyed the past many years, but feel it is time to move on. If you want a "Banker Dory" dory, you must act now as we are only ever building ONE more...That last boat will get built Spring 2010. Lock in that last spot today before someone else gets the last dory boat we ever build.

And...You Can Still Get Our Do-It-Yourself Banker Dory Boat Plans Here


The Dictionary of Newfoundland English defines a Dory as:  A small flat bottomed boat with flaring sides and a sharp bow and stern, providing both stability in the water and easy stowage in stacks on deck.

We love Grand Banks Dory Boats. In fact, we love everything about the Dory boat; the way they look, the way the dory sits in the water and the reaction you get when you see our Cape dory for the first time.  We are the Banker Dory, and we make what we feel is the worlds best built dory. Our dories are all hand crafted from the bottom up, and carefully constructed from white pine, juniper, and oak all held firmly together with stainless steel screws. We then paint your dory a traditional dory buff yellow with ship's green trim. The finished product is solid, sturdy and beautiful.

A Dory makes an excellent row boat and is built on a generous flare. Our dory boats are dry and stable, especially when loaded. As per tradition, a Newfoundland Dory is narrower in the bottom aft than it is forward. This makes the dory draw more water aft and track better. The bottoms are flat with a two inch flare fore and aft.

Take a look around here at the Banker Dory website, and let us know what you think. We would love to build a dory for you whether for a pleasure craft, a lifeboat or simply a treasure of an era gone bye. Your dory can be ready in short order and can be shipped to any Canadian destination. Please contact us today.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but our U.S. customers will be required to cross the border into Canada to pick up their dory. For further info see our "contact us" link.
