(Editor’s note): Ditchburn boats are considered be the creme de la creme of the classic boating world. The Ditchburn company produced a wide variety of watercraft from the early 1870s until 1938, in their facilities in Gravenhurst and Orillia, Ontario. Their boats ranged in size from ten to one hundred and twenty feet. Henry Ditchburn built the first gasoline powered launch in Gravenhurst in 1893. Purchasers of Ditchburn boats included the Eaton family of department store fame..
By the time “Wasan was constructed in 1927, the Ditchburn company employed some 130 men in their 1.5 acre manufacturing facility..
It is safe to say that Ditchburn built boats are of “Concours D’Elegance” quality.
