"Stored Indoors at the Brownell Boatyard From 1971 to 2013"
The Brownell Bass boats are renown for their handsome appearance, robust construction and superb sea keeping ability in their often-boisterous home waters of Buzzards Bay and Nantucket Sound.
“Krietta” has been in the same family since new and has been maintained without regard to cost at the builder’s yard throughout her life; she has been significantly upgraded with a Caterpillar 3208 diesel, recent deck awlgrip, canvas and electronics.
“Krietta” is highly recommended to those who seek a superb example of the classic New England bass boat.
Main decks and engine box are cored 3/4 Plywood and Glassed over. Solid as new. Hull is fiberglass over a cold molded hull. The strongest hull you can have.

Bass boat – that distinctively New England breed – able – agile - hard chine - full keel – cuddy cabin – large cockpit – single engine – soft top – stable – short chop – tide rip – Narragansett Bay – Quick’s Hole – Sow and Pigs - Cuttyhunk – Chatham – morning mist – salt water scents – and of course Striped Bass... There are bass boats and then there are BASS BOATS.
The Brownell Boat Yard turned out premium sport fishing boats for 50 years. Brownell boats are highly prized for their functional design, solid construction and excellent sea keeping qualities. The 26 foot bass boat is arguably their best and most popular model.
The history dates back to 1957 when the noted New England design firm of Eldredge – McInnis drew the lines for a 26’ bass boat to be built by Brownelle Boat Works of Mattapoisett, Mass. This design is the predecessor of the popular Fortier 26 bass boats. We are talking here about a class of boats that evolved to meet the needs of fishermen who foraged for striped bass along the rocky shores of New England. Because the boat is such a stable fishing platform and handles short choppy seas well, in recent years the New England bass boat has become a favorite of rockfish anglers on the Chesapeake as well.
