Bespoke, a White modified Herresoff 12 1/2 built during the winter of 2000 in our Vermont boat shop, was Stanard Boat Work's third foray into wooden boats. The first one, a Sam Devlin designed, SBW modified, Cackler duck boat, was created for a father-son trip down the Champlain Canal and out the Erie Canal. The second one was a boy's hydroplane built from plans purchased from an ad in Boy's Life magazine.

Stanard Boat works most enduring build was the Quickstep 24, introduced at the Newport Boat Show in 1977. Originally designed by Ted Brewer to be fabricated in aluminum, she was a sweet double-ender or round stern cruiser that made her debut at the same time as the famous J 24.

The last boat built by Stanard Boat Works before its move to Vermont, introduced at the 1982 Annapolis Sailboat Show, was a modification of the famous Peter Norlin designed 1/2 tonner Scampi design. Her cabin profile was raised to give standing headroom, and she was fitted with a Scheel keel for cruising/racing in the shoal waters of Barnegat Bay, New Jersey.
