The Essex Dragger Newton

Dragger Newton, Essex, 1930 Anonymous/ © Fredrik D. Bodin
In view of the arrival of our newest Essex-built Schooner Ardelle, I thought it appropriate to show you another arrival in her time. The 116 feet long by 23 feet wide Newton. The Dragger Newton was built in the A. D. Story Shipyard for the Boston Trawling Company. Decorative flags and lines on the bow tell us she’s ready for the September 10th, 1930 launch. The Newton’s sister ship, the Brookline, was launched on December 18th of the same year.

    Not quite so graceful as the Ardelle, but a sturdy, proud boat!

    Harrison Cady’s painting of this (Repro’d)’s at the Cape Ann Museum Shop. Nice!
