Synonymous with Massachusetts' Cape Cod and the surrounding islands, the outline of the catboat is well known, even to nonsailors. First developed in the early 19th century for fishing, it wasn't long before the catboat gained popularity as a recreational craft. With a voluminous cockpit, shoal draft, and easily handled rig, the boat was perfect for the shallows and swatchways of Cape Cod. Lavishly illustrated with photographs and line drawings, Cape Cod Catboats traces the history of these most distinctive of boats. There's nostalgia aplenty.

A catboat (or cat boat) is a sailboat with a single sail on a single mast set well forward in the bow of the boat. Most have a shallow draft, with centreboards, although some have a keel. Most are gaff rigged but some have a Bermuda rig. The beam of the classic Cape Cod Cat's beam measurement is almost half the waterline length, making it very stable. Some cat boats in current use include the Beetle Cat, the Redden Catboat, the Nonsuch, the Inland Cat, the Zijlsloep.
