Four recently sold boats: a Chris-Craft sedan, Monro Torpedo, and two very distinctive canoes!

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.

Santa’s “woody” elves still at work after Christmas!

December 27, 2018 in Uncategorized

Ho-ho-hold the varnish! One of Santa’s favouriute elves, aka Peter Code of Tender Craft Boats,(and a junioor elf) are hard at work on this seventeen foot, late 1950s Century Resorter. The new bottom, frames, strringers, keel, transom and deck make the Resorter an almost new boat!  Peter hopes to have the work completed early in the new year. Meanwhile, the engine is out for restoration. With care and good luck, this Century will provide another fifty years of service.

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.
