Manufacturer Provided Description

Orkney Boats have been building small working and leisure boats and cathedral hulled Dorys for well over 30 years. Orkney Dorys are used by Harbour and River Authorities, Police, Rescue
organisations, Sailing Clubs and many other commercial users and our wealth of experience in dealing with these applications ensure that our boats are tough, durable and supremely seaworthy.
The time proven Dory hull design is renowned for superior stability, outstanding handling and shallow draft combined with huge reserves of built in foam buoyancy for ultimate safety. Constant
development over the years means that today’s models also feature more ‘V’ in the forward sections and ‘raked back’ sponsons for a smoother, drier ride.
Ski boat,workboat rescue launch or a boat for just pure uncomplicated fun, the Orkney Dory will fit the bill to perfection.
