This 28 ft Chris-Craft from 1929 is one of only four remaining world-wide. The side planking is largely original.
Paul, Jeremy and staff ar currently hard at work restoring two massive launches: a 28 ft. Chris-Craft hard-top sedan (1929) and the largest-ever-built 34 ft. Greavette Streamliner (1947). The Chris-Craft is one of only four remaining of the 15 of these boats ever built. Poweredd by a Chris-Craft A 120 engine, it will return to Qeuebec afte a year long restoration.
The Chris-Craft will be powered with a C.C. A 120 engine.. (Note the beautiful work done on the deck joinery.)
This 34 ft Streamliner, (1947) is the largest ever built by Greavette Boat Works.
The Streamliner will be repowered with a 502 cubic inch, 400 hp. engine. With its planing hull, this power-plant should push it along at a very respectable speed. Enjoy the video of both boats below.
A wonderful Christmas gift for a wooden boat lover: this beautiful 1950, torpedo stern Western Fairliner, beautifully restored by Paul Brackley and his staff at Brackley Boats.
Wooden boating doesn’t any better than this! Powered by a period and wiring correct Chris Craft six cylinder engine, this Fairliner is a real knockout!
Paul Brackley and his staff perform major surgery on a a 1950’s Chris-Craft cruiser and give a face-lift to a knockout Minett-Shields triple cockpit.
Our March 2014 visit to Brackley Boats in Gravenhurst, Ontario, uncovered a beamy Chris-Craft semi-enclosed cabin cruiser undergoing a complete restoration. A special treat was a a glimpse of a 1920’s Minett-Shield in for a revarnishing.
