Background: Skipjack sailboats first appeared on the Chesapeake Bay in the late 1800’s. Most Skipjacks are 40’ to 55’ in length. Well suited for oyster harvesting, at one time there were hundreds of these vessels on the Bay. A decline in oyster harvests, combined with the aging of the fleet and other factors, has resulted in a very limited number of these boats remaining today. The Skipjack was Page 2 of 2 officially designated Maryland State Boat in 1985.
