Designed by Walter Ansel, the East Passage 24 is an elegant consolidation of tradition and experience. The boat represents more than three years of dreaming, planning, and building by Carter Richardson and his Rhode Island-based shop, East Passage Boatwrights. This 24’ diesel-powered, center-console boat ties together long-admired characteristics of classic yacht tenders and New England’s hardworking commercial hulls. Her graceful lines and smooth topsides evenly contrast with the stout construction and trustworthy performance of her workboat heritage.

In this pilot video of our WoodenBoat Legends series, we learn about the boat’s conception, construction, and surprising performance.
