December 30, 2018 in Uncategorized

Congratulations to the buyers and sellers of these four vintage boats, recently sold.
Surely this proves that there is a market for almost any kind of vintage water-craft out there!

Chris-Craft Sedan: 22 ft, 1954 (above)

“This attractive and very functional Chris-Craft  sedan features a mahogany bottom, sliding side windows and hinged wind-shield.  Powered by a six cylinder Model M Chris-Craft engine, (upgraded to a twelve volt system) the boat is estimated to reach speeds of 35 mph. The sedan is described as being in good condition.  The owner has added a fuel filter, rebuilt the carburetor and recently repaired the bottom. “Athendune” is currently housed in Anola, Manitoba.”

The asking price on this boat was  $25,000.                          

The list price on this Monro Torpedo was $3,900, including a 35 hp Merc engine and a trailer in roadworthy condition. (Below)

This sixteen foot, 1906 Herald Brothers sailing canoe was listed at $3,000 and sold in several months.(below)

This 16 ft. Chestnut square stern canoe has a carrying capacity of 900 pounds and came with a two wheeeld “side-kick” in new condition. The asking price was $900.

Our newest listing: a stunning Chris-Craft Riviera.

December 14, 2018 in Uncategorized

Chris Craft Riviera: 18 ft., 1951

(Notes form the owner below:)
1951 Chris Craft Riviera.  I recently put $80k into the restoration of Tenby.  No expense was spared as I was expecting to keep her (I have owned her for 20 years (so had very carefully planned this restoration).  However, we will be spending more time on Georgian Bay.  She is a gorgeous craft and is essentially a new boat.
New bottom, new keel, many boards replaced with matching mahogany, new interior, all chrome redone, engine was out and totally rebuilt, all new electric…its spectacular.  (Included in the sale is a tandem axle trailer in excellent condition, all running gear and very expensive rope fenders))

Price: $65,000     For further details and contact information,  please click on the link.  Ad number pb844.  Addtional photos below.

Congratulations to the buyer and seller of this modern-day Hacker-Craft. Contemporary technology combined with classic looks make this triple cockpit launch a real show-stopper. The asking price on the Hacker-Craft was $125,000. (The owner stated that he received a “good price” for the boat.)  Please see notes from the owner and additional photos below.

Hacker-Craft 26 ft, 1997
This beautiful boat is in lovely condition. (The varnish was refreshed this year by Mike Windsor, professional restorer.)
There is wood trim throughout: in all three cockpits as well as the engine compartment.
All three cockpits have windshields.
The Hacker-Craft received a new double-planked bottom in 2003-4 and comes with custom paint and exhausts. The 454 ci Crusader engine has only 131 hours on the clock. The Hacker has been boat-house kept since new.
