25 Feet 1949 Chris-Craft Sportsman w/ Twins

Rare one of a kind 1949 25' Sportsman with Twin KL engines. This boat has been fully restored from the bottom up. No expense was spared on this boat. All outer planks, bottom, sides, and decks were replaced. Both engines were totally rebuilt. Gauges restored by Clawson instruments, all chrome redone, interior, wiring, and much more. This boat is considered as one of the Family Boats. Six 25' hulls were constructed in the Holland, MI plant, one for each Smith brother, and one each for their attorney, lumber supplier, and one for the Ford family. Each was equipped with twin 105 hp KL's (except for one). Each of the six boats have two hull cards, one from the Holland factory, indicting the boats were "to be completed by factory at Algonac", and another from Algonac, where very special modifications and equipment were installed. Each boat received a shock-absorber dampened front seat, said to have been supplied by a friend of Bernard Smith, who manufactured them for the U.S. Army, as used in tanks. Rumor had it the seat did its' job so well, the Smith's thought owners would beat the bottoms out of their boats if they made it an option! Each boat also received the optional aft seat, with a live well under the starboard 2/3 of the seat, and a cooler under the port 1/3. Each boat had an aft steering tiller installed, and a pre-war single pane folding windshield (except for one), and a fish pole locker with locking door.

26 Feet 1936 Custom Commuter

1936 26’ Custom Commuter found in a boat house on a canal between Ashland St and Gray Haven Island in Detroit bordering Gross Pointe. It was across the canal from DYC Commodore Gar Wood’s mansion. Both properties are across the Detroit River from the Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle. Plenty of boating history in this location. We have the Coast Guard Hull card and the builder’s Coast Guard picture ID. The hull was laid in 1936. Gar Wood made a 1936 26’ Hull in 1935-1936. The hull is very similar to a Gar Wood Hull but the definitive plans were lost. All the bottom, sides and roof structure are original wood including the original the beautiful transom. It is all old growth mahogany. It swells perfectly in 24 hours yearly. The motor is original to the boat and the flat head 8 cylinder runs and powers the boat through the water perfectly. All the inside mahogany is new, the upholstery is new, the cabin top and Headliner is new, all the trim is custom stainless and period fittings are re chromed. 2 new automatic bilge pumps and blower are new for safety. Depth finder and inverter have also been added. All the dash gauges and switches are new and the shifter for the drive is attached to a Velvet Drive for smooth linkage fee operation. A hidden depth finder, stereo and power inverter were added for convenience and enjoyment. The canopy is new sunbrella. This is a one off boat and totally custom. The history of finding the boat and launching it are must reads from articles in the Brass Bell. They will detail the story completely. Under my ownership the boat was always in the water in a covered boathouse on Torch Lake , Michigan and stored on the custom bunk trailer fabricated for maximum hull support in the winters in a new insulated Pole Barn with no supplemental heat. It has been stripped of hardware and varnished every 3 years and professionally winterized with spring service on tune up, fluids and water test trial each year. I own multiple collectible rare boats and this one is the show stopper. Contact with the experienced restorer is available.

13.5 feet Feet 1937 Thompson Bro's Boat Mfg. Co., Peshtigo, WI

This original vintage 1937 Thompson Bro's wooden cedar strip row boat was fully restored by our late father Robert (Bob) Kraemer in May 1986. It is in excellent condition (hardwood oak seats) and ready for the water! The boat comes with a trailer and 1949-1952 (Serial #350385 so it is that year range based on our research) vintage Mercury KF5 Super5 5HP outboard motor. It also comes with fully restored wooden oars, carpet pad for the bottom, classic vintage anchor, and battery operated bow and stern lights. Our father Bob was an avid duck and goose hunter (as well as whitetail and mule deer, turkey, bear, elk hunter and fisherman) and who was a life-long conservationist with an eye and love of the outdoors, which he passed these traditions on to his 4 sons and grandchildren. He was a life-long supporter of Ducks Unlimited and was the editor and publisher of the DU Webfoot News for over 25 years. Our dad was born in 1937 and DU was also first established in 1937 so he purchased this 1937 Thompson Bro's wooden cedar-strip boat as a way to commemorate the year DU was established and year of his birth. He completely restored it by himself in May 1986 (see plate of restoration date with his name and month/year stamped in the rear hull of the boat). The boat has been kept in storage and is in excellent condition (just like it was in May 1986 when he restored it), and is ready for another collector to add this age-old beauty to their collection or continue to use for duck hunting, fishing, or just for enjoying the serenity of a local lake. This Thompson Bro's wooden cedar strip boat and vintage Mercury outboard have many more years to go!

18 Feet 1993 Packard Gentleman's Racer

One of only three “Gentleman's Racers” commissioned by the Packard Boat Company to be hand built by upstate NY boat builder John Ford as well as Gary Scherb of Old Time Boats in Florida. The three boats were personally ordered by Bud Finkl, president of the Packard Boat Company and are based off of lengthened plans of the Hacker Speedster 16'. Of the three boats built, this was the president's own personal boat that he kept from new until his passing. This boat is powered by a Chevrolet V6 by specially built by Flagship Marine Engines in Punta Gorda, Florida. The transmission is said to be have been built by the Chevrolet Corvette racing team and was told the running gear was $30,000 the time. Boat is capable of speeds of 40-45 mph and uses hydraulic steering for easy controls. Wood is Honduras mahogany and coated with epoxy sealer with 12-14 coats of varnish and has a beautiful, deep finish. Packard Boat Company of Sarasota, Florida designed and custom built retro-styled powerboats from 1988 to 2002 in very limited numbers and were known for their very high quality and great handling based off of 1920's-30's designs. The Packard Boat Company President, Bud Finkl was a retired engineer, boat racer and a 3rd generation steel worker and his family originally made parts for the Packard Automobile and Boat engines. Per Boats.com “For Bud Finkl, the president and CEO of Packard Boats, classic "gentlemen's runabouts" are something he remembers from his childhood not only because his family had several, but because his father's General Marine Corp. built more than 2000 mahogany runabouts between 1939 and WWII.” Bud Finkl wanted an all wood racer of his youth resulting in this specially commissioned boat with a “2 person seated pilot area in the rear with a forward 2 passenger seat just forward of the midships.” Titled a “1918 Packard,” it was completed in 1993. Bud Finkl showed this boat from NY to Florida and the family said it was only used in fresh water, which is evident by it's excellent condition. After Bud's death, the family kept the boat in their collection for another 13 years. The previous owner acquired directly from the Finkl's family. Boat measures at 18' with a beam of 5', the boat has always been garage kept and never used in salt. The second sister boat, “Pub Decisions” is in Oklahoma while the third boats whereabouts are unknown. Boat includes photos of Bud Finkl personally driving this boat.

17 ft Feet 1870 Custom built

Glory A Fancy Boston Whitehall GLORY is a replica of The Bailey Boat that is on display in the Mystic Seaport Museum. The design dates back to the 1870's. This boat was referred to as a Fancy Whitehall as her scantlings are reduced to an absolute minimum and her hull lines are drawn extra lean and fine. Whitehalls were known for their breathtaking speed as well as being very seaworthy. This one has three rowing positions for 3 oarsmen or can be rowed using the single sliding seat rig mounted in the middle of the boat. A few years back she was used in the movie "Cannibals" which aired on the History Channel. In that movie, they jury rigged a makeshift sail and had 4 actors in the boat. Some of the photos are taken in calm waters in Oyster Bay L.I. The ones with the jury rig sail are taken off Lloyds Neck on the Long Island Sound with a nice breeze. The boat is built with West system epoxy, 2 layers of fiberglass cloth on the outside 1 layer of 6 oz. cloth on the inside. She has some very special details outlined in a separate list. The hull is all solid red cedar with fluted ash rails and spruce cove strip. Transom & bow seats are spruce to save weight in the ends, the center seats are ash frames with cane centers to save more weight. ( See list for other details ) I worked on this boat for a little over one year as I wanted every detail to be perfect. This is the st boat I've built and it's not easy to part with her. If you're looking for something very speciat, that turns heads, can hold 4 people or just go real fast in any weather this is the boat

21.5 Feet 1936 Greavette Custom Runabout

A spectacular example of the craftsmanship by Greavette Boatworks of Muskoka, Ontario; this "Special" 21.5 ' Runabout was built for Col. Moody, Vice President of Greavette Boats in 1936. She was one of only 6 hulls produced in this length. The uniqueness of this particular boat was that it was the only example with covered decks from the rear seat aft and was given "fancy upgrade" consisting of a custom windshield, steering wheel, instrument cluster and hardware. This rendition was named a "Custom", whereas all of the others were "Utility" hulls with an open rear cockpit and a motor box and standard hardware, basic instrument gauges and steering wheel. The boat was originally named "Rob Roy" after the Moody's two sons, Rob and Roy. Mr. Bruce Wilson, subsequent owner of Greavette Boats, acquired Rob Roy in the 1960's, replaced the original bottom and re-powered the boat with the current Chevrolet "327"cu.in. V8 engine. Rob Roy was purchased by Mr. R.E. McDermott, Port Carling ,ON , where it was boat housed at his summer cottage near Mortimer's Point, ON. The boat has been under the stewardship of her current owner since July of 1978. She was comprehensively restored in 1982-1983 with new decks, engine hatches, interior, dash, upholstery, floors, wiring, gauges, complete varnish and re-chrome and the boat was re-named "AliCat" after his daughter "Ali" and wife "Cathy". During the Fall of 2016 the "AliCat" underwent a refresh where she received a complete new transom and re-varnish of the decks and sides. Fully detailed and enjoyed during the 2021 season, then laid up for storage. She is in exceptional condition today and perfect example of a collectable, Canadian built classic! Ready to go!
