The Edey & Duff boatyard in Massachusetts, founded in 1968 by Mait Edey and Peter Duff, has ceased operations.

The company was unable to continue after the unexpected death last December of longtime general manager Dave Davignon, Boatinglocal.com reports.

The yard specialized in classic designs during its 40-year run, turning out such sailing classics as the Sakonnet 23, the Doughdish, the Stone Horse 23, the Stuart Knockabout and the Fatty Knees dinghy, as well as the Hunt-designed Conch 27 center console.
