Artesania Latina Saint Malo

HISTORY OF FRENCH DORIS SAINT MALO

Make waves with the French doris known as the Saint Malo. This Canadian fishing boat was used initially in Massachusetts and Nova Scotia, but was later introduced to France, Spain and Portugal.

The dory ship type was transported on a mothership, usually a schooner. On the roof a doris traveled stacked, and were used by one or two crew members on the coastal banks of Newfoundland to fish for cod.

During the day, they returned to the mothership several times to unload their catches. Due to the doris strength, low cost and ease of stowage, these boats continued to be used as working boats on sailboats and pleasure ships.
