Of the nearly 400 small, fast, versatile wooden Patrol Torpedo boats which were built around WWII, only a handful survive to this day. PT 48 is the only remaining 77' Elco PT Boat and a member of the heroic WWII "Mosquito Fleet". With its stylish look, cold molded cabins, reverse S bend stem, it was one of the first successful ELCO designs. PT 48 has arguably spent more time in the combat zone than any other PT Boat in existence from October 11, 1942 to August 7, 1944 and is officially credited with sinking IJN TERUZUKI. A combat highlight, while on patrol with PT 109 (led by John F. Kennedy), PT 48 was damaged by high seas and rescued by PT 109 and the use of a hand pump. The rich battle record of PT 48 is an intrinsic part of US history. Early after her 1941 launch and shortly after Pearl Harbor, PT 48 aggressively attacked enemy vessels in the Solomon Islands, Guadalcanal and Funuati. This vessel is not currently running and is a great restoration candidate.
