Dramatic price reduction on REALLY rare Peterborough.

April 20, 2018 in Uncategorized


We have been instructed by the owners to reduce the price of this “virtuially new” Peterborough. Originally priced at $35,000, the boat is now available for $22,500. See the description below.

Peterborough Phantom, 12 ft, 1961
RARE – one of the last boats made by Peterborough Boat Co. – possibly the only one of this model made!
A two-seater speedboat with a molded mahogany hull in PRISTINE, ORIGINAL condition. Always stored indoors and only hauled in a closed, single axle boat trailer which is inclded in the sale. Hasn’t been in the water for over 30 years. Comes with an 18 hp Evinrude Fastwin with remote controls.
All original hull, decking, no restoration work done or needed. There is a vinyl cover on the seat but can be taken off – underneath is the original solid fibreglass seat. Includes running lights, compass, speedometer – all original. Compass and flag are stored off boat.
This boat was sold new in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan by Eaton’s. On delivery, the buyer noticed that there were indentations on the transom that looked like a motor had been mounted on it. We surmise that this is the boat that was used for the photograph of the Phantom in the last Peterborough Boat Company catalog. The photograph showed the boat in the water at high speed. After extensive searching, we have been unable to locate another of this model.
This boat is currently in Saskatchewan.
Price: Original Price: $35,000.  New price,  (April 2018)      $22,500    WOW!

We’ll pull the curtains on 2015 with our newest listing: a fully restored Peterborough cedar-strip speedboat prototype: 17 ft 1951

Construction is a cedar-strip hull, sides and deck on steam bent oak ribs. All bronze hardware. The bottom has been modified with a central V, dynamic lift ski and a step.
