CHANTEYMAN MAKES THE BIG TIME!
In late October 2009, Bob Lane, the prolific Northwest Contributing Editor for PassageMaker Magazine, the prestigious “Trawler & Ocean Motorboat Magazine”, individually visited PLOWMAN, WANDRIAN and SALTY QUACKER, 3 Puget Sound Chanteyman trawler yachts, to collect the boats’ stories and photograph them all in great detail.
Bob Lane is the proud owner of a 42’ Grand Banks yacht, QUADRA, and has written extensively about Grand Banks-the company and the boats, Chanteyman’s place in that history plus he was along on the 50th GB Anniversary Cruise to SE Alaska for GB owners.
Bob’s Chanteyman story is published in the
April 2010 issue of PassageMaker.

Chanteyman: Grand Banks’ Salty Cousin
By Robert M. Lane
“Join Bob for a fascinating tour of three classic
wood yachts that shaped the roots of the
Grand Banks family tree.
The longevity of the Chanteyman, a fishboat-styled
cruiser built in the early ’60s, is a testament to
the workmanship of American Marine—and living proof
that there’s lots of good cruising to be had in an older yacht.”
