Apple Creek Boats

About Apple Creek

The Designer


Tom Doane began his love affair with boats many years ago when his father helped him build his first 8' pram. The two stoked his dreams by poring over the plans for a 24' Cruising Sailboat from "Rudder" Magazine.

That boat was never built, but in the early 80’s, after building several more row boats and a Roberts catamaran, Tom took up designing again. His first design, the 18’ day sailer, fixed keel sloop, Sparrowhawk, 
was built in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

Tom designed a 24' Bass Boat that won second place in "Woodenboat" magazine's 1997 design contest. He designed and built Hull #1 of a 13'-6" Kids Trainer that has been displayed at boat shows at Mystic and in Portland, Maine.

Tom holds a Certificate in Boat Design from the Westlawn School of Yacht Design.
