Product Pictures Dory Boats
PEARSON UNLIMITED offers both surf and rowing dories. Our hand-laminated process uses only the highest quality S-Glass stitch-bonded fabric and surface-sealed to assure that no additional weight is gained through absorption. Any type wood is available for the trim, but Philippine mahogany is the wood of choice by many skippers. We also offer high-density polyethylene as a rail option.

Surf Dory

Our Surf Dory meets all specifications of the United States Lifesaving Association (USLA) and the National Doryman's Association (NDA). The hull design is classic Banks Dory but construction is the cutting edge of modern technology. Dory in wavesThe bottom of the hull and the washdeck are cored laminate structures that withstand King Neptune's fury. The washdeck, a one piece part with a molded, non-skid texture, is bonded to the hull and the stringers with a high strength compound forming a rigid "I-beam" type structure along the center axis. Inside of doryWe have also incorporated small fore and after decks that are laminated as part of the hull. This one-piece approach eliminates the problem of cracking in vulnerable areas, especially in the event of a shallow water capsizing. Recesses are provided for the flush installation of our adjustable seat and footbrace system. Appropriate scuppers are installed to make this a truly efficient self-bailing boat. We also install two pair of oak clips to securely hold a spare pair of oars. The Pearson Surf Dory is completely adjustable. Fordeck
AftdeckWith our Track System, moving a seat or a footbrace takes only a matter of minutes. These adjustments allow for a balanced boat no matter what the weight difference is between crew members. Oarlocks can also be adjusted along the rail to provide optimal pull length and position of comfort. Not only can you adjust the bow and stern positions, but the Surf Dory can be setup in a center station operation. Inside parts
