Our newest listing: a charming antique cocktail launch, 26′, 1931

May 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

Notes from the owner:
This beautiful cocktail launch (builder unknown)  was purchased in Sarnia from a gentleman who bought it from the widow of a Great Lakes captain, who had started it in the 1930s.  The launch, with a hull of cedar and white oak, was totally restored using the West System over mostly new wood in the 1990s. The boat is powered by a three cylinder, 20 hp. diesel engine (1990) with only 110 hours . The sale includes a 1990 custom tandem axle trailer with surge brakes and additional equipment.  Price: $24,500.

Water levels in the Great Lakes and Muskoka region remain high from the spring runoff. Floating debris, submerged docks and cold water temperatures can make for a deadly combination. Two drowning deaths (both alcohol related) have already occurred in Ontario. Please boat cautiously and safely this weekend.

Our newest Listing: A rare 22 ft Richardson Picnic Launch: 22 ft, 1939
This rare Richardson launch underwent extensive refurbishing in 2010 by Barron’s Custom Boats in Midland, Ontario. More than $23,000 in restorative work was carried out (including a new hard top). According to an available marine survey by Barrie Marine Surveyors and appraisers in 2010, reported that the boat is in “exceptionally good condition, considering her vintage.” The Richardson is powered by a 4 cylinder 1981 Volvo Penta engine, (135 b.p.h.) The marine survey estimated the fair market value of “Babe” at $33,000 to $35,000
The history of the launch can be found in the text among the photos.
The Richardson is turn-key and ready for inspection.
Price:$20,000 or best offer. Owner will consider a trade for a vintage auto. Ad number pb638 For contact information, please see ad number pb638 on the Classic/Antique Boats page, or click on the link: pb638
