A newly built 39’ boat that fits neatly into a 40’ shipping container has been making a splash on its maiden voyages around Gloucester Harbor, Massachusetts, recently, according to an article on GloucesterTimes.com.

At the helm is Gloucester boat designer Susanne Altenburger, who put in about two-thirds of the man hours it took to build the boat.
