Blanchard Boat Co.



Founded by Norman J. Blanchard Sr.on the northeast side of Lake Union. It went on to become one of the best-known and respected boat shops in the northwest. In 1932, Blanchard and Ben Seaborn designed the BLANCHARD SENIOR KNOCKABOUT, a small cabin sloop, in response to comments made by local boaters about how the International Star design had no cabin. The BLANCHARD SENIOR was a cabin daysailer with the rig of a Star. The BLANCHARD JUNIOR followed, a 20’ open sloop. The hull was scaled down version of the Senior.
