Our newest listing: “Sociable,” a 35′ custom sport ocean racer.

September 11, 2017 in Uncategorized


“Sociable” …a unique Longton Sport Cruiser: 35 ft. (plus 3 ft swim platform) 1968)
This unique cruiser was custom built in Lachine Quebec, as an ocean racer for the 1968 Miami Nassau race.
“This powerful beast with its two oversize 500 gallon aluminum fuel tanks will absolutely thrill any boat enthusiast.” Sociable was fully restored in 1990. She sports a classic fibreglass and aluminum superstructure.
Sociable sleeps two. Her interior amenities include a sink, mini fridge, head, new stereo system and ample storage. The vinyl interior features teak flooring. The two oversize 500 gallon gas tanks allow for lots of uninterrupted touring time.
Sociable is currently located on Lake Muskoka near Bracebridge, Ontario.  The cruiser will eventually need a new bottom.  (She is painted and “corked” every year).  Her replacement value ranges from $750,000 to $1,000,000. Sociable’s vendor is motivated to sell.

Our newest listing: a Chris-Craft Continental, 20′, 1955

September 6, 2017 in Uncategorized

Chris-Craft Continental: 20 ft, 1955
This 1955 mahogany Chris-Craft  was located in a neighbour’s dry (dirt floor) boat house in 2012.  It had been in storage for twenty years! The boat was wet sanded, re-varnished and all the chrome was re-polished. The Continental has always been boat house stored and offers strong wood in great shape.  The boat runs really well…a fast 28 mph+, powered by a 6 cylinder 120 hp Hercules with three carbs.  The engine has been converted to a twelve volt system, so it starts easily. An automatic bilge pump has also been installed in the boat. Last year a fresh coat of copper bottom paint was applied to the hull. The Chris-Craft seats four or five comfortably and handles the ‘big water’ of Georgian Bay.  The sale includes four life jackets and a safety kit.
