Our newest listing A Greavette Sunflash: 20 ft, 1963
pb655-1
This open cockpit Greavette is powered by a newly refreshed 327 ci Chevrolet engine with Alpha outdrive. The hull is very sound. It has been used often this year (2015). The Sunflash features a reinforced two inch thick mahogany transom, (installed about 7 years ago). The boat will easily pull skiers. The blue and white upholstery is perfect.
Six or seven years ago, the Sunflash underwent a complete “ground up” restoration by Classic boats in Orillia, Ontario. $45,000 was invested in the boat at that time. An appraisal afterwards valued the Sunflash at $35,000. Currently, the deck varnish needs cosmetic work to bring the Greavette back to Muskoka Show Quality. A trailer in good operating condition is included with the sale.
Price: $9,999. For further information, please see ad number pb655 on the Antique/Classic Wood” boats age, or click on the link. pb655
Also below the photos, please see the additional information about the Greavette Sunflash models, graciously provided by Sean Conroy.

• The first Sunflash model was made in 1960.
• Tom Faul designed the Sunflash as a plywood boat and was not in favour of planking it. (Greavette sold many planked versions of all “marks” as an option at the customer’s request.)
• The Sunflash II was introduced in 1963.
• There were 4 versions or, “marks” (Sunflash, Sunflash II, III, and IV) the last Sunflash named model was made in 1973.
• Production of different versions overlapped (i.e. Mk. IIIs were made into the 70’s)
• Mk. IV hull was introduced in 1968.
• The SS165 was a shortened Mk. IV hull with “lounge” seating. (Similar to a Donzi 16’ Ski Sporter)
• In 1974 the Sunflash mk. IV hull was renamed “Montique” and became a luxury model (second in the lineup to the Executive II).
• In 1978 six fiberglass hull boats (with mahogany decks) were made from the mk. IV hull and simply called “Runabout”.
• It is believed the last Montique was made in 1978. (I have not found her yet)
• There were several variants of the Sunflash hull through the marks including an outboard version, a utility version and a shortened (16’) ski/sport version.
• There is was a vinyl deck version.
• Over the years the Sunflash came in lengths from 16’(SS165) to 19’(custom order) but, most were 17’, 17.5’ or 18’. (Greavette would build what you wanted … and paid for)
• Drives included inboard v-drive, Eaton stern drive, Mercruiser Sterndrive, and outboard.
• Engines include I-4 cyl GM (120 & 140 HP), I-6 cyl GM (160 &165 HP), I-6cyl Ford (100HP), Mercury 1000 (100 HP I-6 “tower of power” outboard).
• No V6… ever.

There are a myriad of differences in specification and appointment in all areas. Some even follow running changes during a production model year. There are also custom orders that are unique. I have documented many of these but, it would take a book to compare and contrast them all.
