This beautifully crafted, offshore racer has too much potential to lay languishing in a storage facility indefinitely.
Yes, it needs a new bottom and likely, new engines, but what a unique, eye-catching cruiser. The replacement costs for the Longton Sport Cruiser are estimated to be between $750,000 and $1,000,000. The asking price for the boat is now $25,000

Simple and roomy, down below. This boat has seen many ACBS shows in the area and gets used regularly. I have owned and enjoyed “Pudgie” for 12 yrs, including a 2 week Honeymoon, among the Erie Islands of western Lake Erie, 2015.
The Chrysler Marine 383, engine was installed new in 1963. The heads were done in 2003, new exhaust manifolds, Petronix ignition, 2015. The engine has had meticulous care. She purrs like a kitten. The windshield was completely rebuilt and the bottom re-caulked ( with cotton, the old fashion way) and re-fastened in 2014-15. New toilet and flooring in the head, 2019.”

“Sociable” …a unique Longton Sport Cruiser: 35 ft. (plus 3 ft swim platform) 1968) This unique cruiser was custom built in Lachine Quebec, as an ocean racer for the 1968 Miami Nassau race.
“This powerful beast with its two oversize 500 gallon aluminum fuel tanks will absolutely thrill any boat enthusiast.” Sociable was fully restored in 1990. She sports a classic fibreglass and aluminum superstructure. Sociable sleeps two. Her interior amenities include a sink, mini fridge, head, new stereo system and ample storage. The vinyl interior features teak flooring. The two oversize 500 gallon gas tanks allow for lots of uninterrupted touring time.
Sociable is currently located on Lake Muskoka near Bracebridge, Ontario. The cruiser will eventually need a new bottom. (She is painted and “corked” every year). Her replacement value ranges from $750,000 to $1,000,000. Sociable’s vendor is motivated to sell.
(Note” the owner will consider a trade for this boat, which requires a new bottom.)
