Two recently sold, spectacular “classic” boats.

August 10, 2020 in Uncategorized

Congratulations to the seller ad purchaser  of these two unique, very different “classic” boats. The first is an extraordinary, hard top launch, custom built by Peter Breen.
This boat gives new meaning to the word “spectacular.” See the description below.

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.

Custom Gentleman’s Racer: (above)

This is a newly launched Reproduction Gentleman’s Racer. She is epoxy built double ply bottom… never needs soaking up. She is all mahogany and white oak construction. Her sides are a royal blue. The varnished decks are all book matched planking over 1/4”ply  and the cockpit is nautolex. This vessel is complimented by her custom made steering wheel,shifter,deck scoops, cut-water, stainless fuel tank, and mirror stainless hatch chrome. Retro white gauges with chrome bezels. The vintage chrome was redone. She has hydraulic steering and 3” stainless exhaust. This vessel is powered by a 350 bored 30 over and is capable of 47 mph. She has a custom made 12.5x13V Acme prop and HF7 Paragon hydraulic transmission. A show winner!  “Slightly Altered” has a tandem axle trailer with brakes, new tires and rollers. She does not have any issues with prop torque. Originally priced at $65,000 I am asking  $35,000.00 Canadian, (about $26,250 USD at current exchange rates). Would look at close offers.
Note: The owner has modified the boat since the original description was provided. Details below:
We stripped the boat of all hardware and refinished her.
Decks and hull were all water sanded The deck was sprayed with 2k Urethane for better UV protection and hull was sprayed with two part urethane Plum Crazy Purple pearl with Sassy Grass Green waterline with ghost skulls on aft sides and 2 coats of clear Urethane. “Slightly Altered” showed well in Gravenhurst last summer. I also built a windshield with green glass. The motor has had a Holley 600 CFM performance carb. and a Wiend 8016 Stealth Aluminum High rise Intake installed as well.

Original Price: $65,000.  New price, (Sept 2019) $35,000 CDN
WOW!

Two questions for our subscribers and viewers!

July 5, 2020 in Uncategorized

First, many thanks to our viewers and subscribers for your loyalty in helping to keep the Port Carling Boats website active and vibrant.
We are considering replacing our “Cottages For Rent” pages, with “Antique and Classic Autos” pages, which seems a more natural fit with antique & classic boats. We would be very grateful for your opinion on the following two questions.

1) Would you be interested in viewing pages and ads devoted to antique and classic cars?  (yes or no)

2) (If you answered “yes” to the first question, what per-cent of our posts should be dedicated to antique and classic autos?  10%, 25%? 50%?  etc…

Again, we would greatly appreciate your input on these questions. Replies can be emailed to contact(at)portcarligboats.com. Many thanks in advance to those who respond!
