  • The Cricket II
  • Over the past three decades, we have had a chance to serve some of the finest vessels and crews on the oceans, including:
  • The Jolly II Rover, an 80-foot topsail schooner based in Key West. She was built by Bock Marine and launched in 1994.
  • The Cricket II is the vessel that inspired the movie JAWS. Today, she is being outfitted at Bock Marine to accommodate US Veterans and Wounded Warriors through the Cricket 2 Project.
  • Flutterby, a junk-rigged Freedom ketch, was based at Bock Marine for several years. As a result, Bock and the surrounding areas play a key role in the book, Strangers Have the Best Candy .
  • World-renowned sailing vessels and their crews aboard Ciganka, Catania, DiggerKat, Morgan’s Cloud, and many more.
