We’ll pull the curtains on 2015 with our newest listing: a fully restored Peterborough cedar-strip speedboat prototype: 17 ft 1951
pb671-1
This prototype boat offers a very unique opportunity to acquire a one-of-a-kind light and fast runabout. The speedster seats 4. 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. Round shear line and two tone decking.
Over 200 hours were spent on the bottom rebuild, 200 hours for the deck and another 200 hours for finishing; including the upholstered seats and hardware, plus the motor and steering mechanism. Over $14,000 has been invested in this one of a kind speedboat. The boat comes with a trailer and two motors: a 1969 Evinrude ES 33 HP and 1973 Evinrude ES 28 HP plus spare prop. Located near Montréal on Richelieu River. Asking $5800.For contact information, please see ad number pb671 on the Classic/Antique boats page, or click on the link. pb671
