The Jersey Skiff is a stunning boat with a rich heritage. She was originally designed in the mid-1800's to be beach-launched and rowed through surf for rescue and salvage work. This required a boat that was stable and fast, had a high carrying capacity, and was easy to handle even when short-handed.
The resulting design marries the best attributes of the classic Whitehall and New England Dory hulls, as the fine bow slices through chop without pounding, while the tumblehome transom tracks with the surety of a Whitehall.
A small flat section on the bottom reduces draft, and allows the Jersey Skiff to sit solidly on a beach, while increasing stability whether rowing or sailing.
I bought this beautiful boat from the original owner 2 years ago but have not had time to enjoy it; he had the same problem... This boat has therefore been sailed only a handful of times and is in almost 'as new' condition.
This was the as new description of the boat:
17′ jersey skiff, deck version, sailing ; $12995 / roller furling genoa 589 / sliding rowing seat with adjustable footchocks $595 / mahogany gunwale trim $895 / mahogany slide seat and interior trim $595 / black gelcoat top strake $549 / gold cove detail $50 / storage hatches 425 / s.s. Keel guards $295 / 2 prs 9′ spoon blade oars $429 / cover $629 / tiller extension $96 / 4- pop up cleats @$65 $260. Add all that up and new sistership replacement cost would be $17602.
It now also has a trailer, naturally...
