Two recently sold, beautiful classic boats!

June 18, 2020 in Uncategorized

Congratulations to the vendors and buyers of the two classic boats listed below. The vintage boat market has certainly been heating up recently.
Perhaps it’s the Covid-based need to escape from the large urban centres, and hit the water, or just the impending arrival of summer.  Whatever the reason, this is good news for sellers of antique and classic boats.

27 ft Christ-Craft, 1955.  (Photo above) This boat, powered by two six cylinder engines, was listed in good condition. It was last priced at $12,900. CAD.
