"Miss Comet" is a very unique and special performance runabout. She was designed and built by Naval Architect, Monty O'Shea, between 1945-1949. O'Shea was best known for designing the famous Dodge yacht, "Delphine". She is built entirely of laminated Honduras mahogany. The unique bottom design features 2 planing-steps and a forward rudder for directional control at speed. Power comes from a pair of 350hp Chrysler Hemi engines equipped with 4 2-barrel carburetors each. In its early days, the boat was reported to reach speeds of 80mph! "Miss Comet" is a testament of what a craftsman can accomplish with all-wood contruction. Her powerplants are intriguing, and she is an important piece of performance-boating history!
