Our newest listing: a classic custom Shepherd runabout, 22 ft, 1952
This beautiful classic Shepherd has been regularly maintained over the years.
The Shepherd is powered by a 125 hp. 6 cyl.Chrysler Crown engine, in great running condition.
Notes from the previous owner:
“We replaced four planks and some boards on the transom (2009). The hull is in good shape. It was re-caulked before last season. I had a new head installed five years ago. An oil leak fixed last year. Other than that the compression is still good. I refinished the boat in 2009 and then again in 2011, I believe. That was just to freshen up the varnish and add a few extra coats for depth. The interior was all redone in 2009, as well as the chrome.
The previous owner was the original owner from 1952. I do not know what they did to it over the years as they had passed away when I bought the boat. It appeared to have been well maintained.”
The current owner of the boat replaced one transom plank in 2013, repainted the bottom and had the engine tuned.
(Purchased in 2013, the current owner has no cottage or boat house to store the Shepherd, and is reluctant to trailer it regularly, though he is very satisfied with the boat.)
The Shepherd comes complete with an Eagle tandem axle trailer in excellent condition.
