BENJAMIN RIVER PEAPODBenjamin River Peapod profileNEW

BENJAMIN RIVER PEAPOD is a larger version of my BEACH PEA design, made at the request of a customer who wanted a boat big enough to hold his growing family. While BEACH PEA is big enough to carry two adults and two medium children, three adults should be considered the limit in rough conditions. The Benjamin River pod is 6” longer with 4” more beam and should easily carry four adults through rough water, 5 or even 6 in calm conditions.


We are thrilled to introduce you to our newest design/build GATSBY! We’ve got lots of photos and info about her at the web site, plus you can click here to see a video of her at our Facebook page.

I am pleased to announce that D. N. Hylan & Associates Inc. has become Hylan & Brown – Boatbuilders. It was in our winter 2012 newsletter that Doug announced that he had brought me on as partner. Since that time my responsibilities as well as my ownership of the company have grown to the point that Doug thought we ought to put my name on the shingle too. I’m honored to be associated with all the great work that Doug and this shop have turned out over the past 20 years. I look forward to continuing and building upon the great reputation for quality, honesty and creativity that Doug has worked so hard to build.Ellery Brown
