General Description

Elegant torpedo stern, custom deck furniture, 29 kts top speed, bronze hardware, wooden hull. Classic rumrunner design from Rumrey’s Boatyard, Saco Maine.

The Frost Torpedo 36’ was designed for speed. The current owner commissioned this vessel to be built at Rumery’s Boatyard and used it as a high-speed island commuter in Maine.

Her elegant lines and fast design manifest from the Prohibition era. The following is from the builder:

“During the Prohibition era of the 1920s successful downeast rumrunners used boats built by, among others, the legendary Will Frost. Their wit, and the characteristics of their vessels, allowed them to elude the government's revenue cutters. Rumery's 36 pays homage to these elegant, fast & seaworthy designs of Will Frost. The sensuous curves of the torpedo stern, and the sculptural smoothness below the waterline, makes the Rumery's 36 an extremely efficient hull form, very easy to push through the water. The hull slices through the water: "As you give it throttle, it goes faster and faster, but there's no wake...it runs cleanly and it never pounds." (Bob Stephens, Brooklin Boat Yard, quoted in WOODENBOAT issue #170 Jan/Feb 2003)


This boat handles well in all sea conditions, stable at rest and at speed, it always feels safe and comfortable. The nearly flat run under the torpedo stern smooths out the water as it exits from under the hull leaving almost no wake at any speed. It is extremely fuel efficient, and at the same time very quiet. Rumery's takes extra effort to provide a comfortable environment for the helmsman and your passengers.”


BÅT features a spacious cockpit, with custom deck furniture made by Darling Boatworks in Shelbourne, VT. An additional seating area is found in the lazarette hatch as a “Rumble Seat.”

The cockpit is equipped with an optional bimini for shaded seating.

Below, you will find a V-berth as well as a starboard settee with the engine box in the center. There is a sink with a beautiful bronze faucet. 

BÅT has a wooden hull and was constructed to the highest standards of craftsmanship. She boasts high quality bronze fittings and is sure to turn heads on a harbor cruise. She cruises comfortably at 22 kts and has a top speed of 30 kts.
