It has now been 46 years since the Grandy yard on Lake Union in Seattle burned down, bringing to an end a Puget Sound boatbuilding tradition that began more than a hundred years ago.

This web project is devoted to the remaining vessels built to Earl and Bill Grandy's exacting standards. Our two principal aims are to record as much information about the history of the Grandy Boat Company as we can uncover and, wherever possible, to illustrate and describe surviving Grandys, from 16' runabouts to 60' Marlineers.

Other departments within this site provide a miscellany of other information related in some loose way to the tradition of Grandy-built vessels and wooden boats in general.
