William Bates first fell in love with boats and boating as a teenager, sailing Sunfish and paddling canoes and rowboats on the beautiful lakes of central New Hampshire – Newfound, Squam, Winnipesaukee, and others.

After a period of study in small craft naval architecture through Westlawn School of Marine Technology and MacNaughton Yacht Design School, he began creating and building his own designs, an effort that continues to the present.

His elegant designs have a classic flavor. Many are modeled on historic workboats used along the American coast. The construction method is stitch & glue, and takes full advantage of modern epoxy and fiberglass technology. Questions and Comments are welcome – you can email him anytime: wmbatesdesign@gmail.com
