A peter boat or peterboat was a type of fishing boat, found principally on the Thames Estuary and the adjacent coasts of eastern England. In legend, the peter boat's origins lie with the boats used to ferry passengers to and from St. Peter's Abbey, the Saxon predecessor to Westminster Abbey in London. By the middle of the second millennium, a peter boat was a double ended boat of about 12 feet (3.7 m) in length, usually used for fishing.
