Notes from the owner below:
“One of Greavette’s most iconic models, the Streamliner was produced in limited numbers from the late 1930’s until the early 1960’s. Designed by Doug Van Patten, the model featured stunning curvature, elaborate exposed framework, and traditional Muskoka egg crate flooring. This 1955 double cockpit model has been nicely restored and well maintained. The bottom was replaced in 2015 and a detailed list of restoration and maintenance history is available. The boat was re-powered in 2018, with an inter-cooled 5.7 litre fuel injected Mercruiser horizon engine that only has about 2 hours of use and is under warranty until October 2019. The boat also includes a new tandem axle galvanized trailer. This Streamliner is in excellent condition and ready to enjoy this season! Motivated Seller! Trade for cars may be considered.”
