“High Tea” returns to Muskoka.
One of the largest and most beautiful cruisers ever built by the Ditchburn Boat Company has recently returned to Muskoka, Ontario from the united States. She came by water as far as the Trent Severn water-way would allow, and was then loaded onto a flat bed trailer, minus her top cabin, and transported to Gravenhurst. Brackley Boats staff re-installed the cabin top and a monster crane gently lifted her up, out and into the water.
“High Tea” will be a wonderful addition to Muskoka’s wooden boat armada! (Photos and further description below)
A description of “High Tea”
“High Tea”, a Ditchburn cabin cruiser, 58 ft, 1929.
1929 was not a good year for investors, but that did not stop the production of wonderful cruisers … HIGH TEA, an immaculate displacement hull cruiser, is an absolutely stunning example of a “Gatsby” era yacht from a by-gone time. She has been beautifully maintained without regard to cost by her previous owner. She is a usable and practical well built classic in turn key condition. With two state rooms, High Tea will sleep four. She is powered by twin Volvo diesel engines, each 250 hp. She has a fuel capacity of 810 gallons, water capacity of 100 gallons, and a 40 gallon holding tank.
