Versatile trailerable sailboat

This site has been created and maintained by Chebacco enthusiasts since 1994 and is the most comprehensive source of information on the boats and the adventures their owners have in them.  The archives are now indexed and searchable or you can just browse the last 25+ years of posts.

I am always looking for photos and stories to publish: <My Christian Name>

Chebaccos are a family of camp cruiser sailboats designed by Phil Bolger (1927-2009), one of the world’s most prolific and innovative boat designers. Chebacco boats are commonly, but not exclusively, home built.  The majority of Chebacco boats are 19’8″ cat yawl rigged double chine ply construction, but other versions include lapstrake construction, cold moulded construction, cruising cabins, raised decks and a 25′ version.  Chebacco boats continue to be built, sailed and enjoyed across the globe.


January 2018: Keep watching the links and videos pages – every time I find something on the net I put up a link.

October 2019: I have been contacted by a sailor in Colorado USA who would like to meet a Chebacco owner so that he can see if they suit his needs.  contact me if you live near there and I will pass on his details.
