We have been advised by the owner to adjust the price on this stunning Johnson long deck launch.  Original price: $45,000 USD.  New price (Jan, 2019)  $35,000 USD. Please see the full description,, additional photos, a brief video and contact link below.

W.J. Johnson long deck launch: 20 ft, 1930
Billy Johnson , of Disappearing propeller boat fame, started to build boats again in 1929/30 in Port Carling after his Disappearing Propeller Boat Company went bankrupt in 1924.
His  new company , incorporated in 1930 or 1931 , was named Port Carling Boat Works and began building the famous lines of “Seabird” boats until the 1960’s.

This boat offered for sale pre-dates the Seabirds and is one of very few built under the Billy Johnson name. A very rare and historic Canadian boat, completely professionally restored by Clarion Boats in 2009/10.

This long deck launch offers a double cockpit configuration and a semi displacement hull. The weight of the boat is about 2400 pounds.
The hull is cedar plank construction on steam bent white oak frames. The deck is single plank mahogany over sawn mahogany beams.

All electrical systems were completely rewired during an extensive restoration in 2009/2010. The system was upgraded to 12 volts.
During the restoration, all the oak ribs were replaced, and a new aluminum stem, transom and oak keel were installed. The Johnson features all new bottom planking. The boat was completely re-decked, both frames and planking. All the mechanical systems were refurbished The launch is currently in excellent condition. The replacement cost of the Johnson is estimated at $95,000 CAD.
The launch comes complete with a low hours single axle trailer with folding tongue, surge brakes,  guide bars,  fenders and seps. Also included in the sale are four life jackets, bilge pump and anchor.

Original Price: $45,000 USD.    New Price:, $35,000 USD  (Jan. 2019)  For contact information, please click on the link.    Ad number pb798

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.
