Add vintage nautical charm to your den, office or family room with this unique Bosun's Gig Bookshelf. Referred to as rowboats by land-bound folk, a gig was easy to lower overboard, needed minimum crew, and was quick to dispatch.

The bosun, or boatswain, was the ship's officer in charge of equipment and crew. When stowed, the gig nested in the long boat or pilot boat secured in the center of the main deck. This lapstrake (overlapping strips of wood) gig may not be seaworthy, but it certainly looks like it!

The stunning finish on this all wood boat/shelf rivals any other piece of handcrafted furniture. The four shelves provide space to store books, collectibles and more.

  • Recreation rowboat with bookshelves
  • Rowboats were referred to as "gigs" on ships
  • Handcrafted using traditional boat-building techniques
  • Stunning honey-colored wood finish with brass accents
  • Four shelves for books, collectibles and more
