This boat was my father's gift to himself after he graduated from Notre Dame. We used to take this boat to New Hampshire every year until we moved to CO in 1972. Since then it has only been in the water a handful of times and the last time was in 1988. 1956 Mahogany panel boat and 1956 Mastercraft trailer. This boat has always been garaged. It has not been in the water or towed since 1988. This boat will need a full refinish/restore before being sea worthy. Yellow Jacket boats were crafted in Dennison, TX. The motor is a 1956 Mercury 55 (40 hp). It has also not been started since 1988. My father and I last had this boat in the water and it ran beautifully at that time, although there was a slight leak in the transom. Be the next owner of this beautiful collector boat. You will need to flatbed this boat and trailer, The trailer has not had maintenance since 1988 and I would imagine the wheel bearings will need to be cleaned and repacked. The rubber on the tires is at least 35 years old. I have the original sale paperwork from when my father bought the boat new. The boat is located in Colorado Springs 1956 Mahogany panel boat and 1956 Mastercraft trailer. This boat has always been garaged. It has not been in the water or towed since 1988.
