Richardson Picnic Launch
Asking Price: $15,000(CAD)
Richardson Picnic Launch: 22 ft, 1939
This rare Richardson launch underwent extensive refurbishing in 2010 by Barron’s Custom Boats in Midland, Ontario. More than $23,000 in restorative work was carried out (including a new hard top). According to an available marine survey by Barrie Marine Surveyors and appraisers in 2010, reported that the boat is in “exceptionally good condition, considering her vintage.” The Richardson is powered by a 4 cylinder 1981 Volvo Penta engine, (135 b.p.h.) The marine survey estimated the fair market value of “Babe” at $33,000 to $35,000
The history of the launch can be found in the text among the photos.
The launch is turn-key and ready for inspection.
New price: (March, 2020) $15,000 or best offer. Owner will consider a trade for a vintage auto. Ad number pb638
