16'7" Feet 1972 Boesch 510 Utility
Swiss-manufactured Boesch boats are well-respected competitors to Riva Boats. This particular boat was purchased in France in 2002 then restored to as new in Duesenberg, Germany the next year.

My intention was to take her to Arizona and use her at my winter home, but very low humidity and very high heat are not good for the mahogany. I have decided to sell this very-good condition boat. I am going to miss it very much. [PRICE REDUCED - August 2022 - Motivated Seller! - Make an Offer!]

It has been in the same family since the mid – 1960s always kept in an enclosed ‘dry’ Adirondack boathouse when not in use.

24 Feet 1930 Ditchburn Neptune Triple Cockpit Runabout
Building on its legacy of grace and speed, the Ditchburn Boat Company built the Viking model based on a Bert Hawker design in the late 1920s. It had a hard chine hull and more muscular lines to appeal to a new generation of boat buyers. In 1930, Ditchburn added a shorter more agile version of the Viking, with a forward drive layout, and it became known as the Neptune model. The Neptune was a 24’ triple cockpit launch with Ditchburn’s iconic upswept foredeck - a modern design, blending elegance with performance. This boat was originally built for the Marshall family at Windermere in Muskoka and was named the “Margaretta’. It has been in the Muskokas ever since. The original engine was a 100hp straight 8 Buchanan engine. It was repowered in 1986 when the boat was completely restored by Butson Boats. It now features a water cooled 185hp V6 Crusader and can run at speeds in excess of 40mph. In addition to the new engine the restoration included a new hull, replating of all chrome hardware and new leather seats. Original features include the engraved ‘German silver’ instrument panel, a navy top and a ‘fireman’s siren’ horn. She handles well, runs smoothly at speed and has been meticulously maintained over the years.

This is a beautiful triple cockpit Sea Lyon, fresh out of complete restoration. Show quality varnish, upholstery, engine rebuild and chrome. This boat was advertised in the brochure to attain 35 mph with the 110 hp Chrysler. This is a true "collector's boat" as there are a limited amount of Sea Lyons available. Also noteworthy is the bronze hardware and the fact that this boat was screwed from the inside giving it a magnificent look. All Sea Lyon's are triple cockpit models because the company was after the "luxury portion" of the market. Truly a wonderful example of a limited edition boat.
25 Feet 1930 Dodge 25A Triple Cockpit Runabout
1930 Dodge model 25A hull number 8. Believed to be the oldest in existence. Transom and bottom have been replaced, otherwise believed to have all original wood. The bottom is a no soak 5200 done by a professional shop that also installed a GM 350 block engine. The original Lycoming was running when taken out and has been stored in a safe environment along with all the conversion parts. All hardware was replated, new upholstery and a fresh coat of varnish in 2018. The boat has been stored on a lift over water inside an enclosed boat house since and lightly used. Comes with a tandem aluminum trailer. I have lots of history on the boat including correspondence from original owner in 1932 to the Dodge Boat Company. When the boat was reupholstered we found the original upholstery in place. This has been preserved and all skins have been saved for the Clayton Museum as a frame of reference. The new material matches the original in manufacturing style and color perfectly. Only known issues; prop is for the Lycoming not the 350. Stern Globe although period is not exactly correct but serviceable. As you'll see from the pictures she comes with a high quality dash panel and all the accessories as when she left the Newport News factory. This boat is an excellent piece of history and a great addition to any collection.
25 Feet 1930 Dodge Model 25A Triple Cockpit Runabout
One of only a handful of Dodge Model 25A Runbouts left in existence, and optioned with the larger Lycoming inline-8 165hp engine. The 25 foot triple offers an attractive deck layout, roomy cockpits, and dual windshields too protect passengers from wind and spray. The larger Lycoming engine recorded top speeds of 38mph, emphasizing Dodge's keenness for speed and progressive styling. This example was restored in the late 1980's and is now ready for a full cosmetic restoration once again. Minor woodwork required on the decks, hull planking and framework appears very sound. Chrome and interior should clean up well and new cockpit hidem is included to match. The 165hp Lycoming engine has been run and winterized. We believe this to be an easy restoration project that will yield a very desirable finished product.

The company was formed in 1910 and later was reborn under the name of Minett-Shields in 1925 after a partnership with Bryson Shields. The company ceased operation in 1948 but only after putting out approximately 200 Launches and Runabouts which were all noted for their fine craftsmanship.

It is powered by a Chrysler 6 cylinder 130HP engine which is original to the boat. It is structurally sound after receiving great care from it's current owner of 20 years.
