The sailing sharpie is uniquely American: they first appeared in the shoal waters of the Atlantic seaboard, where their shallow draft and good load capacity made them well suited for inshore fisheries and commercial transport.
NEMAH takes full advantage of the lightness and ease of assembly that characterize tape-seam plywood construction, while her fine lines and the traditional appearance of her trussed rails set her apart from the vast majority of designs available for amateur building.
NEMAH'S computer developed, battenless sail is fitted with a wishbone boom to provide outstanding performance, with a high aspect ratio daggerboard and kickup rudder to keep you in control.
NEMAH rows beautifully, even with an average load of 2 or 3 adults, and can be powered with a small outboard of up to 5 h.p. Sides are 1/4" marine plywood with a 3/8" marine ply bottom - no frames or lofting required.
