Peterborough Royal: 16 ft, 1958
Notes from the owner below:
This exceptional cedar-strip runabout features mahogany gunnels, bow and stern, and is completely completely refinished. It has a convertible top that slides forward to let in the sun or snaps in place to provide cover. All original chrome and floor boards.
Professionally painted boat license on both bow sides (28E 1985) and
painted “Peterborough Royal” on both stern sides (taken from the original
template prior to refinishing). Upholstery, canvas roof top and
fitted canvas cover for the boat have been redone by “Niagara Marine Upholstery” and are like new. (Approximately 2004-2006
Original Johnson steering cables and controls.
Electric start and powered by a 1961 Johnson 40 hp outboard motor.
The boat has been stored indoors in a climate controlled environment
and includes a TeeNee trailer
The trailer is in very good condition, and has always been used to haul the boat. The motor ran beautifully the last time that I had it in the water. I did fog it after use each year before the winter, and it has always been stored in the garage (which never goes below freezing). Saying that, the marine battery may need replacing & one of the gas lines from the tank to the motor needs replacing.
Murray Boat works (Niagara-on-the-Lake) did the restoration…all upholstery was redone by Niagara Marine Upholstery. There is no fiber glass on the craft. The boat is 16 feet in length and the beam is 68 inches (bull nose at the front) – the chrome strips along the full length of the boat were replaced after restoration…other than that, all chrome is original
The photo on the water is at Six Mile Lake and was taken a few years ago. (Garage photos were taken July, 2016). The owner would be happy to provide more details.
