Double Ender Boat


BoatWiki - Definitions


A double ender in boating terms is a watercraft where the bow and stern are of the same shape. Boats of this configuration are also known as double ended. Double ender boats can range from canoes to sea going yachts.


 There is some debate as to the effectiveness of a double ender boat other that being able to move in either direction or perhaps better handling in following seas. Some boaters also just prefer that kind of styling.


There are no implications of double enders when it comes to titling, state registration, or USCG vessel documentation. However, the placement of hull identification numbers and perhaps the vessel's name and hailing port may be of some consideration.


Boats interested in owning a double ender who are not familiar with the implications should consult with a professional designer or boat sales agent.

Please assist your fellow boaters by wiki-sharing any comments or experiences regarding this subject.
