38 Feet 1931 Matthews Double Cabin Cruiser

The asking price has been reduced from $235,000 to "make us an offer." We're ready to price this boat to sell this summer, and encourage you to make an offer. This extraordinary 1931 Matthews 38' double cabin cruiser is ready for summer getaways, and sleeps six. The elegant Dowager is structurally better than new thanks to a 2001 restoration by master boatwrights at Cayuga Wooden Boatworks in Ithaca, NY. Dowager’s interior was restored to its original art deco charm, new systems installed, and the hull was rebuilt from the deck down. The result is a 1931 show boat that looks like it was caught in a time capsule, with modern systems and a safe, strong hull for confident cruising. Dowager’s 1999 - 2001 rebuild/restoration: 132 white oak ribs (all) keel shaft log horn timber stem knee stringers engine beds covering boards transom all planks below waterline some topside planks cedar tongue & groove forward deck planking painted canvas deck covering Silicon bronze fasteners were used throughout All Dowager’s systems are new as of 2002: engine controls electrical panels shore power wiring plumbing heads tanks shower refrigeration propane The 100 hp 1988 Westerbeke diesel engine was cleaned and reinstalled on shock absorbing mounts on new engine beds. The restoration mission was to make the Dowager safe and comfortable with modern amenities but keep it as original as possible. The boat's insured replacement value is $600,000 due to the scope and quality of the restoration. Dowager has original beveled mirrors and bronze hardware. There are cleverly hidden modernizations like the SeaFrost refrigeration system adapted to the original icebox. The shower in the forward head has hot and cold water pressure. Dowager’s hull is extremely fair and true to its lines with no hogging, deformation, loose or proud planking. The interior is in showroom condition with doors and trim well varnished and all other surfaces painted white. There is no cracking or peeling paint. The boat is kept undercover in a boathouse year round, preserving its impeccable condition. This vessel has been meticulously and professionally maintained since its 2001 restoration. Summer of 2016 maintenance included annual bottom paint and varnish (including transom). This boat is for the discerning buyer who wants to own a classic wooden yacht that's been restored to its fullest potential. The Dowager is ready for extended cruising, elegant parties, and charmed days summer.

57 Feet 1941 Elco Cruiser

This boat is in fact the very last Elco 57 ever built (Hull #41.57.04; Doc #240807) and the last Elco luxury yacht built before the WW II. Elco stopped building luxury yachts in 1941 as the USA entered WW II, so they could concentrate all their efforts on building PT boats for the Navy. They eventually went back to building yachts in 1945; the company folded just a few years later. The original owner gifted this boat to the Navy after the Pearl Harbor attack, and she ended up serving during WW II (1942-1944) as YP 359 at the Navy Base in Key West, Florida. Will be glad to furnish the information the Navy sent me on her WW II assignments (very light duties).What Satisfaction needs is a new owner with the resources and honest desire to bring her back to life. There is a lot of rot, tons of leaks when it rains, and some reconstruction needed due to work done by a previous owner, who attempted to “modernize” the vessel. That owner also fiberglassed the hull (excellent job! The boat takes NO water whatsoever from underneath) and fiberglassed the decks (so-so job, it’s delaminating in several spots). She is in a freshwater lake (Lake Monroe, Sanford, FL), and has been there since the 1970s – tough previous owners would occasionally cruise up the St. John’s river and take her out to the ocean to fish the south Florida waters. The interior is in fairly good shape; salon is very comfortable and stately. The galley still has the original 1941 stainless top and wood cabinets. All interior doors, hinges and door knobs are original, as are the dressers in the cabins. Stanchions are all the original brass ones, and so are most all cleats. Wheel, control levers, and compass are original to the boat, as well as two wooden storage trunks on the top deck (one trunk needs a new top - it flew away during hurricane Irma.) There are four (4) A/C units – only one is working properly; another blows air but not cold; the other is cooling but not blowing air, and the 4th works well for a few minutes and then starts shaking.

19 Feet 1973 Chris Craft Lancer

I’ve been slowly restoring this classic Chris Craft boat but just don’t have the time needed to do it the right way. The boat runs and will be water ready once the outdrive is repaired (see below). Here's what I’ve done so far: Rebuilt the top end of the engine. 307 small block Chevy. Heads rebuilt by Hazel Automotive. New DUI marine distributor New marine starter Carburetor was rebuild (still could use some adjusting) New shifter solenoids New electric shift cable New freeze plugs ( the block was flushed with acid.) Manifolds were flushed with acid. All new hoses. New custom dash All new gauges. (Never finished hooking up the speedometer gauge) New fuse panel A lot of new wiring New 29 gallon gas tank. New mooring cover. New jump seats Painted the outdrive. OMC electric shift Added second battery with switch On the trailer: New tongue with Hydraulic Brake Actuator New brake line kit. (Not completed but I have all the parts) New wheels New hubs/drums Here is what it needs: The outdrive needs a new upper gear housing. I ran into a sandbar (at idle speed) while approaching a beach. It cracked along a spot that had previously been repaired (not by me). But upon inspection the weld looked to be done poorly. It will also need the tilt quadrant gear. As I lost it on the back after that happened. The ball gears will need to be replaced sooner rather than later. The floor will need to be replaced sooner rather than later. Windshield needs to be tightened down. The pass through window needs to be replaced. It just looks bad. I have a new piece of Acrylic for it. Could use a new steering cable. TLC Like I said I love this boat but I just don’t have the time to give her what she deserves. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks David

16 Feet 1957 Thompson Sea Coaster

This 1957 Thompson Sea Coaster was restored both inside and out and will be sure to turn heads when you are on the water cruising in this wood stunner. The hull is all original 5-Ply Douglas Fir Laps. The laps were inspected, tested, and tight. The hull was then sanded and all bolt fittings were sealed with MarineRX 2-part epoxy to ensure another 70+ years of on-the-water fun. The hull received a full Pettit System paint finish, including three coats of Pettit Marine Primer, four coats of Pettit Topside Above-the-Waterline Gloss Polyurethane and four coats of Pettit Hydrocoat ECO Ablative Antifouling Paint below the waterline. The natural wood finishes on the exterior are mahogany and sealed with three coats of Pettit Flagship Gloss UV Protecting Varnish. The Sea Coaster's interior hull has been sanded and finished with two coats of Smith's Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer. The floors are beautiful teak slats that have been sanded and hand-rubbed with teak oil. The seat backs have been sanded and sealed with two coats of Pettit Flagship UV Clear Varnish. The bench seat cushions are made of new open-cell foam and covered with new marine vinyl. The decking brightwork is a mix of original and additional, period-correct hardware. The metal and wood rub rails are all original to the boat. I've added a mahogany rub rail strip and brass nail detail between the top and second lap to protect the lap edge. The windshield frame is solid mahogany and dovetail constructed. All new tempered safety glass was installed this year. New wiring has been run throughout. The motor is a beautifully restored 1956 Kiekhaefer Mercury Mark 30 with electric start and is paired with a 1956 Kiekhaefer Quicksilver mechanical control. No other way to put it, this boat is sexy! The trailer is a Holsclaw Trailer from the 70s

17 Feet 1948 Chris Craft Deluxe Runabout

This boat started its life after completion on March 5, 1948 in the Chris Craft factory in Algonac, MI with a delivery to the Kenneth E. Wilson company in Newport Beach, CA. Its refurbishment began in California in early 2003, it was “quick claimed” as an abandoned boat in the LA area outskirts by a retired Doctor George Sweeney. He brought it home and with a few friends, they replanked the bottom and sides (triple planking on bottom, double planking on sides). I believe he worked on it for about 5-6 years out in California and got the hull back into ship-shape applying the West no soak on the hull. Then I believe the boat was purchased by another doctor in Arkansas, moved there and little progress was made thru about 2012 on the boat. In about 2013, the boat was purchased again and moved to Hague, New York area where the restoration was completed. The boat work was done by Chad Dunklee and Walt Peterson (Chad was the manager of boat rebuilding at the Hacker Boat Company at that time). The engine and transmission was rebuilt to a 12V system and unleaded gas operation by Fish Brothers in the Hague New York area while the wood and chrome was refinished. The boat was completed in about 2015 and even entered into the Adirondack Chapter’s 40th Annual Lake George Rondezvous where it received an award. In May of 2016, I purchased the boat and returned it to its birthplace of Michigan, where it was enjoyed by many cruising the Big Crooked Lake in Brighton, MI. Regular service was done, a bilge blower was carefully installed to match existing dash switches, and the boat was re-varnished in early 2019 in the Algonac area by the old craftsmen of the Chris Craft factory there. The seams are tight, the varnish is shiny and the boat is a beautiful piece of art. Overall, it is in immaculate shape and ready for the next owner to care for it long into the future. I have a binder of original documents such as the “build sheet” from 1948, catalogs, and maintenance booklets to pass to the new owner, along with about 200 photographs of the original work done in California in the early 2000’s. Fully restored and Recently refinished, no soak hull, immaculate with trailer

19 Feet 1969 Century Arabian

The modern era for Century began in 1965 as the pendulum swung from mahogany speedboats to the introduction of fiberglass. The 1965 model year was the last for Century's catalogue of all-wood models, and the new Fibersport in 1966 marked the company's transition to fiberglass. Following this successful introduction, Century chose to produce 3 of its traditional wooden models in Fiberglass for 1967, on a limited production bases. The 19' Arabian was produced in Fiberglass, sharing an identical profile and configuration, between 1967-1969. While extremely popular and sought after, Century only produced 84 mahogany Arabians between 1966-1968, and it is believed that fiberglass Arabian production was less than half of this number between 1967-1969. This 1969 Century Arabian has been very nicely restored with correct A&A platinum deck vinyl, professionally installed A&A factory-replacement interior/sun pad, repaired stringers, factory correct hull paint, and fitted with a custom trailer. This early fiberglass model represents a transition period for Century when new models closely resembled their mahogany predecessors in both function and appearance. They were a calculated blend between modern materials and traditional design aesthetic. The boat is powered by a 440cid 330hp Chrysler Big Block "Wedge" engine, which was the largest available option in 1969. Silver Award Winner at the 2019 September ACBS International Boat Show.

31.5 Feet 1941 Chris Craft Sedan Cruiser

Rare 1941 Model. Few made as Chris Craft switched to WW2 production the next model year. Cool large crank windows. Extensive rebuild.History of my 1941 Chris Craft Sedan Cruiser (as best I can surmise): I believe it to have been delivered late 1941 because I discovered this inscription under the galley counter when doing some repairs. It was originally purchased by a family in Nashville who used it on the Tennessee River. I had contact with some of the children of the owner who recalled wonderful times on the boat. Subsequently, it was purchased by an attorney in Washington DC, I believe in the 1960s. It was then purchased from his estate in 2011 by a broker who specialized in antique boats. He drove the boat from Columbia Island Marina to Colonial Beach VA with no problems. He kept it in a heated boat shed there with the intention of restoring her. He decided due to his age and resources to sell her. I purchased it from him in 2012. There was some serious repairs required and the broker hooked me up with an experienced restorer and Master Boatwright. He is an excellent job using Philippine mahogany. It took eight months of his exclusive time and $55,000. I visited on numerous occasions and installed new electronics and updated some mechanical and electrical systems. I drove her from Deale MD to Plymouth MA in May of 2013. The boat ran perfectly. Since then I have made continual upgrades and restorations. So, I believe I am the third owner/user of the boat. I have looked extensively and have never found any other surviving boat of this model.

19 Feet 1938 Chris Craft Sportsman

The 1938 19 foot Sportsman is a very rare and desirable boat. At 19 feet it is the smallest Triple cockpit and has seating for eight people. The Aft Cockpit faces to the rear and affords you an opportunity to watch world behind you as glide thru your favorite lake or river. This was a unique design for 1938 that included two smaller seats in the Engine compartment. The front cockpit is very stylish and you ride on the comfort of blue leather seats. This boat departed the factory in 1937 and went to Chicago. In July of 1939 it returned to the factory for some minor work and once again departed the factory in July of 1939 and went to Pontiac, Michigan. Over the years it ended up in Virginia and my father and I bought it and brought it back to life. From the ACBS perspective it’s considered a “Preserved Boat”. All the bottom frames, side frames and deck frames are all original as is the sides and decks. No replacement wood. The Interior wood is all original with factory stamps on most pieces. The Ceiling boards are also original. The only modification to the boat is the new wood on the bottom using the WEST System. The engine is the original 95HP and has been completely rebuilt along with the Reverse Gear. New fuel tanks were necessary and replicate the original tanks. Boat was stripped and sanded---restained and Varnished. It has a mirror finish and all the chrome has been replaced. Instrument panel has been replated and has the original gauges along with the Banjo Wheel. Boat comes complete with custom trailer with cut out side lighting. This boat is show ready and would score very high at the ACBS International Show

42 Feet 1986 Carver Motor Yacht

A distinctive yacht with her stylish cabin windows, aggressive bridge overhang, and reversed radar arch, the 42 Motor Yacht was Carver's first attempt at the big-boat market...and what a success! She sold very well during her production years and remains popular today in the pre-owned market thanks to a roomy, well-arranged and cavernous floorplan. She's built on a conventional modified-V hull with a solid fiberglass bottom. There were two floorplans available...this is the one without a dinette, providing a larger galley and guest head forward, and a larger guest stateroom with a centerline berth. The salon offers a huge feel for a 42-footer and with her wrap around windows offers a panoramic view allowing an abundance of natural light in. While most were built with a lower helm to port, this one was not, allowing more room in the salon for lounging and entertaining. The aft deck offers space for table and chairs, protected with the hard top, while the bridge has enough comfortable seating for six. Her well-arranged engine room has more than adequate space for getting around, and is accessed via fold up steps from the galley area. She's powered by Mercruiser 454-cid gas engines. While no speed demon, she'll cruise comfortably at about 13-15 knots while reaching a top speed of just over 18 knots. The owner cruises this vessel in the fresh waters of the Upper Chesapeake Bay around 20-50 hours every year. While she makes an excellent condo on the water, she hasn't been sitting still like many of her sister ships!

26 Feet 1948 Higgins Industries

Greetings from Indiana... Everyone"s first question is usually why I am selling The Andrew J. We have had many great experiences together since her restoration was completed some 10 years ago. It's time for someone else who appreciates these fine Higgins boats to enjoy cruising and going to shows as my health and mobility as well as my work has not enabled us to travel with her and manage that lifestyle any more. She is stored inside on her custom made trailer but I will be losing this storage next year so I have to start selling my most treasured possesions. She is still in great condition and the last time I exhibited her for judging in 2018, she scored a 99.5 in the Preserved Category and won Best of Show Preserved. (ACBS International Show Racine, WI). She did not get her bottom wet in 2019 as life is speeding past and our direction has changed. She is a very rare boat and is the only 1948 26' Higgins Deluxe Sedan Cruiser that we know of. She was restored by Dan Nelson of Nelson Boatworks up near Lake Minnetonka, MN to the exact factory specifications. So how does a person conclude on how much to ask for her? With well over 100K invested it would be nice to find a buyer at that price but I am a realist so I have come to the decision of asking $69,500. She has a clean title and is ready for a sea trial. I pull her with my Ford F150 V6 Turbo on easy speeds of 65 mph down the interstate. She rides smooth and steady. To gain more context on her superb restoration and comments from others, I would suggest you start with this great Article about "The Andrew J" written by Texx from WoodyBoater. copy and paste to your browser... https://www.woodyboater.com/blog/2011/10/06/the-andrew-j-an-amazing-1948-higgins-barn-find/ For refernces on value, I would suggest to contact Dan Nelson of Nelson Boatworks, Paul Morris from Cedar Tree Boat Show, Jeff Funk, Scott Ramsey of Ramsey Bros. Restoration and any of the other ACBS officers who have judged The Andrew J in past years. I am confident they will consider my asking price an extremely good value. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Warm regards... Jeff (Pictures taken by WoodyBoater and Forrest Bryant)

17 Feet 1961 Chris Craft Ski Boat

A true Barn find. Just down the lake... Saw this boat in the water in the late 70's. went in once a year for a day trip. Rarely used Extremely well stored inside a garage . and also well tarped with ventilation on trailer. Properly winterised as well. i bought it from the family estate after owner passed and want it to go to a happy new owner...IA True Barn /Garage find. This lovely 1961 Chris Craft Ski boat was owned and used by the owner very few times in the last 40 years in Canada on the St Lawrence River. The owner took her out maybe once or twice since he had owned it. As a neighbor growing up, I had always mentioned to the gentleman that I would love to buy his boat one day. As it was rarely used and extremely well stored inside his garage it was almost forgotten . . It was properly winterized as well. I finally bought it from the family estate after owner passed away in the past year. As myself have aged along with the Boat I have decided to sell as is. The boat was probably not taken outside for the last 25-30 years. Everything is like it was in the 70/80’s Nothing has changed. All is original and Complete. As you can see in the photos the bottom still has the original varnish on the inner plywood bottom and covered in plank on the outside… The boat is very original. A great lime green canvas custom tarp. (great tent smell). On a dual trailer . situated close to the Ny Vermont Border and Ontario as well in the South west of Quebec Canada.

27 Feet 1957 Chris Craft Cruiser

Up for sale is a 27 foot cruiser hull. 1957 or 1958 model by the hull number. I bought this hull to swap over the engine and fittings from another cruiser that I have, as this one was redone and has a no soak bottom. I believe the bottom and sides have a West System finish. There is extra West material included with the boat. The boat sat in our warehouse for about 10 years now, and the sides haven't moved or cracked one bit. Very tight and solid hull. I didn't know that the hull had basically all of its hardware when initially purchased, and for that reason didn't end up swapping my hardware (which is slightly different) from my other hull onto this one. As far as I can tell, everything is there to finish this boat. Some of the chrome seemed to be redone already, while some could use re-finishing. The rudder is still installed, with the steering rods inside the bilge. Copper exhaust pipe is also included. I attached pictures of all the miscellaneous parts and fittings spread out on the floor. It has a new spotlight installed, comes with a new blower and bilge pump (both still in box), rolls of electrical wire (and a wiring diagram drawn by the gentleman previously working on it), blueprints of the boat, new flag pole, 2 captains seats, rough convertible cover, etc. etc. See the pictures for everything included. The only thing not included is an engine, prop, or trailer. I used another trailer from one of my 26 footers to have this thing picked up, so I do not have a trailer to offer with it. The boat came without the engine or prop, but I have some spare MCL's (needs to be rebuilt) that I can offer with the boat if interested. I can offer any additional pictures or information to the best of my ability. Don't miss a chance to get a great boat that already has the hard work done to it!

18 Feet 1958 Chris Craft Holiday

Up for sale is our 1958 Chris Craft Holiday. The boat has a 6 cylinder KFL dual carb engine with an output of 131 hp. It is the original numbers matching engine according to the copy of the Chris Craft Equipment Record that we have. Hull I.D. is H-18-310, and engine no. is KFL-203416. The engine was completely rebuilt in 2008, inclusive of reconditioning of the rods, valve job, resurfacing of the head and block, bore job, new internals, etc. The engine runs great and sounds absolutely amazing. This is my favorite sounding boat we own. Videos are available. Every once in a while it will be hard to start after sitting, as I think the fuel pump might need some attention. No issues running or starting back up after running for awhile. The bottom was completely replaced over the winter of 2018. It is a double planked west system no soak bottom. The original tach and amperage gauge work, but the oil pressure does not. A modern cluster including a water temperature gauge and an oil pressure gauge were added below the dash to the right of the steering wheel. The boat reads about 35 pounds of oil pressure at idle. The chrome was redone, and the seats were reupholstered in 2008. The finish is very nice, however it does have some cracking between the boards on the deck. I tried to show this to the best of my ability in the pictures. Overall, this is a great running and complete boat (minus the flags and poles) ready to hit the water for a day of fun. The boat comes with a full paperwork as well as documentation of previous work done to it. I have a clear PA title and registration for the boat.
