BEETLE CAT (1921 - 2016)  - Celebrating 95 Years!
The Beetle Cat boat is a 12 foot, gaff rigged, wooden sailboat first built in 1921 by the Beetle family of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Beetle, Inc., now located in Wareham, Massachusetts, is now the sole builder of Beetle Cat boats.

The Beetle Boat Shop is dedicated to preserving the art of traditional Plank-On-Frame wood boat construction using the highest quality of materials and craftsmanship. While building and maintaining the Beetle Cat is our main focus here at the Beetle Boat Shop, we are also reaching out to design, build, restore and maintain larger wood boats of all kinds. The effort we have made to date will be evident as you explore our website.

We hope these pages will be a resource and an inspiration to anyone interested in Beetle Cat boats and traditional wooden boat building.

Bill Womack, Owner/Manager

Quote of the Month: "If a man must be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps a bit better than most.   A small sailing craft is not only beautiful, it is seductive and full of strange promise and the hint of trouble."   E.B. White
