Our newest listing: A “once in a lifetime” Ditchburn Gentleman’s Racer, 22 ft, 1931
This unique vessel offers a very rare opportunity to own one of the most sought after, iconic gentleman’s racers in existence.
“L’Aiglon”, (The Eagle) has lived her entire life in the same boathouse on an island in Lake Muskoka. Her hull was designed by famous Canadian race boat driver Harry Greening in association with George Crouch. Her sister hull is Rainbow. (She is also known as Rainbow IV.)
L’Aiglon was custom built in 1931 to the exacting standards of the family. She won many trophies, still in the possession of the owners. Many period photos will be posted when available.
L’Aiglon is currently powered by an eight cylinder, 225 horse power engine for reliability.
This national treasure is offered for sale at $212,000. For further information, please see ad number pb588 on the Classic/Antique Wooden Boats page, or click on the link. pb588
