Bergersen Boats does it again: a magnificent 27 ft. Shepherd Twin Engine Express Cruiser.

March 15, 2017 in Uncategorized


Congratulations to the staff at Bergersen Boats, who recently completed the restoration of this stunning Shepherd Twin Engine Express Cruiser. Please see notes and photos from the restorers below.
“1953 27′ Shepherd ‘Falcon’
This amazing craft was painstakingly restored by Bergersen Boat Co. This hull is #13 in the first series of 27′ Shepherds built with a beam of 9′ 6”. This boat boasts the rare 331 Chrysler Hemis first offered in 1953. The engines were just overhauled including the Chrysler V-drive transmissions that have all reconditioned clutch packs and seals.

Top speed is 42 mph. This boat comes complete with kerosene stove top, head, original stainless cooler and sink. The bottom is original and the hull sides have been refastened with silicon bronze screws. All bungs were made from original old stock Honduras Mahogany from a ‘donor Shepherd’.
This craft has the original throttle and shift control levers that have been custom machined to operate modern control cables. You will never find a smoother shift on a Shepherd. The 200+ HP Chrysler Hemi’s have modern Delco electronic ignition systems that we machined parts and adapters to accept this incredible upgrade.
With this new ignition system the engines run better than they did when brand new. The boat has 15 coats of Epifanes varnish just applied, restored windlass winch for the anchor, a custom built mahogany swim platform which mirrors the intricate Bubinga and teak grating on the floor in the boat. Winner of the 2016 Geneva Lakes Boat Show Captain’s Choice Award.

pb717-1Chris-Craft Constellation: 37 ft, 1963
Notes from the owner:
A comprehensive restoration was completed in 1998 including the finishes being stripped down to bare wood from top to bottom. The bottom was redone with Interlux antifouling paint and above the water line it was primed with epoxy primer and top coated with acrylic polyurethane. The teak decks where sanded down to fresh wood and recoated with Tuffshield for a virtually maintenance free finish. The swim platform and all other miscellaneous teak surfaces were also refinished.

In 2000 the engines were upgraded with twin 8L V10s (see advancedmarinepropulsion.com). The vessel continues to be stored inside during the off-season and looks and performs as best in class.
pb717-7
In addition to the engines and surface finishes the alcohol counter burners have been replaced with electric burners. All engine gauges were rebuilt in the 1980s and all of the wiring was upgraded or replaced to ABYC standards. All instrumentation is in A-1 working order.
