Our newest listing: a Century Resorter: 16′, 4″, 1964

March 13, 2019 in Uncategorized

 

1964 Century Resorter “June Bug”:  Vintage Lake Cruiser

Notes from the owner below:

“16 feet, four inches in length, dark mahogany wood. Red & white interior trim (seats, engine cover, etc).

Engine specs: Gray Marine V-8, 175 HP.

The June Bug has been fully restored by Tim Butson (Tim Butson Wooden Boat Builder, Bracebridge). All records, documentation and artifacts will be turned over to the new owner.

Our family has owned this boat for 5 years. It is an incredible easy boat to handle in the water, providing a comfortable smooth ride, and exceptional power with the V-8. We have used this boat for skiing, wake-boarding, tubing, and cruising the lake.

Boat has always been stored indoors, and properly maintained to hold the 1960s feel.

2018/2019 summer/winter tune up has been completed; remove, replace, gap and install (8) spark plugs, remove distributor cap, clean and set points, annual carburetor adjustment. The June Bug is water ready.

Why are we selling? Over the past 5 summers, we have only put 14 total hours on it (see the picture with the hour indicator).

The boat is stored in Bracebridge.

If your family is in the market for a restored, vintage lake cruiser with the ability to ski, tube, wakeboard – look no farther than our ’64 Resorter.

.Trailer not included (trailer is not road worthy).

Our newest listing: a Grew Jolly Giant, 23′

March 11, 2019 in Uncategorized

Grew Jolly Giant: 23 ft. 1953

Notes from the owner below:
“This “barn find”  Grew is a true Georgian Bay boat.  I have a complete survey from May 2016 by David Buchanan. He went over every inch of this boat and found it to be in sound shape. Bottom and side planks are all rot free and ribs and frames the same. The Grew received a market evaluation of $45,000 to $55,000

The boat is in need of a total paint and varnish job and new upholstery too. I put the Jolly Giant into the water last summer and got the engine working like a top. I installed a new gas tank, filters and carburetor.

The motor is a Buchannan 283 v8 and looks like and runs like new. I did a compression test and all cylinders are perfect.  (The engine is a Chevrolet small block V8, marinized by Buchanan, and installed in the 1960s). Running time on the engine has been low since installation.

This boat would be easy to complete cosmetically.  The price compares very favourably with the two other Jolly Giants on your website.”
