Among small boat enthusiasts the Yorkshire Coble is legendary for its seaworthiness and unique styling. Developed for launching off steep shingle surf beaches and fishing along the iron bound shores of England's North East coast, these open boats are among the worlds most able small craft.

Coble from Stuart's drawing board is a simplified plywood version of those outstanding boats, on a smaller scale than the originals but with much of their character, spacious, simple to build and able under sail, oar or outboard motor this would be a stylish way of enjoying the fishing wherever you might be.
