Description: Draketails were the first workboats on the Bay to receive gasoline motors, allowing them to go faster and travel farther than sailing vessels. Typically 30’ to 45’ in length and often referred to as “Hooper Island” Draketails, their Chesapeake Bay deadrise design and narrow beam was perfectly suited for turbulent Bay waters. In 1988, the Chesapeake Bay Deadrise was designated the state boat of Virginia. Our half hull Draketail is cast polyresin, hand painted and mounted on a mahogany- stained hardwood display board. Please note - last photo shows all three of our small half hulls, including the Draketail (other two are available elsewhere on our website).
Dimensions: Boat is 3.25” long. Display board is 5” long X 2.25” high.
Part Number: HHDK-S
