Rowboat Bookcase

Rich wood tones and a high quality finish allow this bookcase to fit into the finest of homes.

Dispatched for victuals for the captain's table or to take the crew on shore leave...

Gigs were invaluable when in port or moored outside. Referred to as rowboats by land-bound folk, a gig was easy to lower overboard, handled by one sailor, and quick to dispatch. When stowed, it nested inside the long boat secured on the main hatch.

Our lapstrake (overlapping strips of wood) gigs are not seaworthy, but they certainly will look like it! Clinker-built, they add flair and atmosphere to any room. Shelves turn them into fun displays and bookcases.
