Gentleman’s Racer: 22 ft. 2012

There’s no excuse for this modern classic having to wait  any longer for a new home, especially at this dramatically reduced price! Please see notes from the owner below.

Custom Reproduction Gentleman’s Racer, 22 ft, 2012

“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  $45,000.00 Canadian. 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.”

Our newest listing: A Crouch designed replica hydroplane race boat; 19 ft. 2000
This unique hydroplane, “Commander McBragg”, is a reproduction of George Crouch’s famous 1912 hydroplane race boat. The racer was built in 2000 by talented and meticulous craftsman, David Berg of Berg Boats, in Washington State, USA.
Now you can “have your cake and eat it too”. Enjoy the thrill of piloting a “century old” race boat in excellent condition without worrying about a one hundred year old hull!
“Commander McBragg” represents one of the first, if not the first,stepped hydroplane designs. Built in 2000, it features African mahogany decks and transom, red cedar sides and mahogany plywood bottom. The hardware was custom fabricated to be true to the design of the original boat. “Commander McBragg” is powered by a 1936 Ford flathead V8 engine in good condition. The racer has won numerous boat show awards.
