In the Shop: TROUT & GATSBY II

We currently have two projects in the shop, both launching in the summer of 2024.


TROUT is a new electric powered Garvey, closely based on a design from Harry Bryan. She’s bound for a pristine lake in Maine where she will offer her owner quiet, emission free enjoyment of a truly spectacular place.

LOA – 23′ 2″
Beam 6′ 8″
Construction – Chine, Marine plywood bottom, Lapstrake topsides on Locust frames.
Propulsion – ePropulsion Navy 6.0 Evo (6 kW, 48 V)
Battery Bank – 6 kWh (2x ePropulsion E60 LiFePO4 batteries)


GATSBY 2 is a day boat with the range and capability to explore all of the best parts of the Maine coast. This design from Matthew Smith N.A is inspired by the customer’s first Hylan & Brown boat, Gatsby. This boat will give them more range and more comfort and protection in a broad range of sea and weather conditions. Lots of tech (Yamaha Joystick controls, Seakeeper Gyro, Zipwake trim system), careful joinery, and plenty of brightwork will add up to a stunning, comfortable, and capable boat.

LOA – 31′ 6″
Beam – 10′ 4″
Construction – Cold molded marine ply and cedar strip/ sheathe.
Propulsion – Twin 250 HP Yamaha Outboards
