Broker's Comments

This boat has lovely traditional lines, typical of commercial launches of this era. She is in need of some work but well worth the effort if you are looking for a traditional wooden launch. The engine runs ok and would appear to have adequate horsepower for this type of boat. These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
