Thumbnail ad:

Believed to be the only 24′ Shepherd hardtop in active use. A wonderful boat for multi-day cruises. . The boat can be viewed by appointment in SE Wisconsin. Offers Requested

More detailed notes from the owner below:
A 1954 Canadian built 24 foot Shepherd hardtop is now available. The boat is in excellent condition, and has received many awards; the most recent being, Best Classic Cruiser at the 2016 ACBS Lake Geneva boat show. As an active Antique and Classic Boat Society (ACBS) member, I have enjoyed taking friends on ACBS cruises across the eastern US for over 15 years. This has included cruises on: the Mississippi, the Three Lakes Chain, the Eagle River Chain, the St. Lawrence, the Rideau, the Upper Ottawa, the Hudson, and the Finger Islands of Lake Huron. We have always enjoyed waving to the open boaters as we pass them on rainy days with our side windows cranked up and our windshield wipers active. Unfortunately, I am now in my 80’s and have lost most of my crew. Hence, I am now basically limiting my boating to local waters in my GarWoods.

As far as I know, this Shepherd is the only 24 foot hardtop in active use. The advantage of the 24 foot hardtop vs. the 27 footer (which is more numerous) is the added seating under the hardtop. The 27 footer has only two bench seats under the hardtop with rest of the space used for built-in furniture; whereas, the 24 footer has four bench seats under the hardtop.The Shepherd weighs about 5,000 pounds….6500 with the trailer.
pb727-5
The original Hemi V-8 has been rebuilt, (approx. 1998) and it has run great for my 16 years of ownership. In addition to replacing the transom, I replaced some covering boards, chines, frames, all of the interior side paneling, all of the flooring, and the fuel tank. I converted the power train from a remotely activated hydraulic shifter to a classic floor stalk shifter for greater ease in docking.
pb727-4
I added a Garmin GPS, an InterPhase forward scanning sonar, and a marine phone. These units are mounted on a mahogany bracket in front of the dash on the right side of the helm. These units make cruising much safer. I also built a removable maple picnic table which can be installed in front of the rear bench seat. All the seats have been re-upholstered in a shade of green matching the steering wheel, and the new stalk knobs. A two axle heavy duty trailer with surge brakes on each wheel, and three covers are included. (Larger axles and tires were installed in 2013). The boat can be viewed by appointment in SE Wisconsin on Lauderdale Lakes, which is 15 miles NW of Lake Geneva. My address is in Elkhorn, WI 53121.

Notes from the owner:
This beautiful 1953 Shepherd 22’ utility runabout African mahogany boat has won many boat show awards. She is powered with original 150 HP Gray Marine engine, Paragon hydrostatic transmission, and new 12 volt Dura test 84 mo. 1000 CCA battery. Boat was restored by Woodwind Yachts, Nestleton, Ontario, Canada, making this Shepherd a special eye-catcher in any boating event. Attention during restoration was made to original details including:
pb708-5
– Third owner since new with documents available.
– Rechromed with lots of bright chrome.
– Original bow light with integral circulating air vent.
– Deck mounted chrome siren.
– Dual chrome spot lights mounted on each side of the windshield.
– A rear view chrome mirror in center of windshield.
– Seats are upholstered in quality marine grade green naugahyde with white piping.
– Floor has “special” Waterhog carpet rope design adding to the quality ride and nautical appearance.
– The galvanized fuel tank has been replaced with a new custom fabricated 20 gal. baffled stainless steel tank for longevity.
– Bilge pumps installed fore and aft.
– Original hour meter with less than 600 hours.

The 12 coat marine varnish finish topside and the bottom, recently refinished using Interlux bottom enamel, complete the name of the boat: “Beaut Too”, the pride of the show.
In addition, the boat comes with a custom made fitted slotted mooring cover with ½” braided docking lines and three canvas
covered docking custom fenders to help protect the boat when tied up at a dock. The boat comes complete with custom mahogany
boarding ladder and matching gaff with 6’ handle and chrome hook along with a Shepherd paddle, bow flag and ensign.

Finally, the boat rides on a special 30’ heavy duty American 5 Star tandem axle trailer with five 8 ply 14” Michelin tires mounted on anti-rust wheels, hydraulic surge brakes for controlled braking and torsion suspension stabilizer. All these provide a safer, smoother and more comfortable ride when towing.
pb708-4
This well-maintained boat has always been run in fresh water and has been garaged in a controlled warehouse when not in the water. Boat located in Marietta, Georgia, USA. Asking $125,000 U. S.
This boat is ready for fun and show, a real rare find. Owner says NO but wife says MUST GO.
