The dory was renowned for its seaworthiness and served as the typical American fishing boat for inshore and offshore fisheries throughout the 19th century and well into the mid-20th century. The dory was also the first type of American small boat to be mass-produced on a small scale by Simeon Lowell and his descendents. Thus, Lowell's Boat Shop is also considered one of the Nation's first mass production builders, manufacturing more than 2,000 boats in a single year. Today Lowell's Boat Shop serves as a working museum and a training ground for boat builders, owned and maintained by the Newburyport Maritime Society.
