Our newest listing: a unique Breen Fast Limousine: 29′ 2009.

January 13, 2020 in Uncategorized

Breen Fast Limousine, 29 ft., 2009

Dolly Durkin Jr. is a 2009 29′ Breen Fast Limousine that took 5000 hours to complete. Based off a very successful Gold-Cup John Hacker-designed race boat hull of the 1920’s, and powered with a 496 cubic inch Mercruiser V-8 , this boat provides a stunning ride at all speeds. Hull is solid mahogany on white oak framework, sealed inside and out, to create a maintenance-free wooden boat experience. Decks are 5/8″ thick mahogany strips, book-matched out from the centre king plank. The cockpit is enclosed with a hard-top made of cove and bead strips incorporating two gull wing hatches for easy entry. Six model T roll-up windows provide shelter in unfavourable weather, and a cool, airy ride in nice weather. Main cockpit holds 4-5 comfortably and the forward “mother-in-law” cockpit holds an additional two passengers. All hardware is sand-casted bronze, chrome-plated. Mechanical drag-link steering with outboard rudder assembly provides sports car maneuverability and feel. This boat was built to be a sales tool for Peter Breen Antique & Classic Boat Co. Ltd, and attended shows across North America including Tavares – Florida, Houston – Texas, Bay Harbour – Michigan, and Brainerd – Minnesota where she won awards at each show. After a decade of showcasing our work, we are looking to find a new home for this unique and truly labour intensive creation. Construction details can be seen at www.breenboats.com.

Asking $195,000.00 CAD. ( or about $148,000 USD on Jan 10, 2020)
