UNUSUAL RAKED MAST SCHOONER POND BOAT

 
Many of the pond boats for sale on this site were made by Seaworthy Jacrim Company and the Keystone Toy Company of Boston.  We search for the old hulls and restore the spars and sails to as near original as we can.
 
We look for neglected pond boat hulls from the 1900s through the 1940s and the restore them to the graceful vessels that they once were...our version of recycling. Recently, we have added pond boats manufactured and distributed by the Schoenhut Toy Company in the 1930's.
The Seaworthy Jacrim boats were made by Chester Rimmer, A Naval Architect graduate of MIT in 1921. He formed the Jacrim Hollow Boat Company in the 1920s with the partnership of Arthur Jackson. They distributed their boats through the Keystone Toy company of Boston, MA. In the 1938 Jacrim merged with Keystone begain making boats under the Keystone name. Recreating the classic lines of full scale yachts designed by Nathanial Herreschoff and others, these small toy pond yachts were manufactured for a limited time.
