Dory 424 Profile

The Orkney Dory really is a timeless classic. Now offered in three different versions Tender, Sport and Custom. Orkney Dorys are used by Harbour and River Authorities, Police, Rescue Organisations, Sailing Clubs and many other commercial users. Our wealth of experience in dealing with these applications ensure that our boats are tough, durable and supremely seaworthy.

The time proven Dory hull design is renowned for superior stability, outstanding handling and shallow draft combined with huge reserves of built in foam buoyancy for ultimate safety. Constant development over the years means that today’s models also feature more ‘V’ in the forward sections and ‘raked back’ sponsors for a smoother, drier ride.

Whether you are looking for a ski boat, work boat, rescue launch or a boat for just pure uncomplicated fun, the Orkney Dory will fit the bill to perfection.
