1902 Lozier 23' Double Ender Launch
Asking Price: $70,000(CAD)
Makalika, at 120 years old, is a very special piece of history. Built in 1902, she was bought in 1903 and moved to Muskoka in 1904. The Clark family of Milford Bay took care of her for 113 years. In 2017, she was bought by the Dilworth family and moved to Bala for restoration. Makalika’s hull was built by the Matthews Boat Company of Port Clinton Ohio in 1902. She then went to the Lozier Engine Company in Plattsburgh NY for completion. The 23’4” hull is “carvel construction using 5/8” red cedar on oak ribs capped by a red oak combing and deck.” The original power was likely a one cylinder 3 HP Lozier inboard engine. It was replaced by a 1938 Kermath Sea Cub 25 hp, which is still providing very reliable service.
