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".

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.

16' Feet 2020 Boomslang Boats Inc
I am the builder of these modern reproductions of mid 1950's mahogany runabouts that utilized modern materials and technology. They offers the wooden boat admirer the opportunity to own a beautiful wooden boat without the enormous maintenance requirements of the originals. There is no varnish to maintain as it is finished in clear coat epoxy. The modern Mercury 4 cylinder 3.0 Liter engine offers twice the power, half the weight, and 3 times the fuel economy of the originals of that era. The engine is compliant with California emissions standards. The hull is a seamless epoxy glass construction with 3/16" mahogany planks bonded to it. Its deep V configuration achieves an easy plane and a smooth ride. The Alpha 1 outdrive provides appropriate trim at any speed. The boat is light enough so that anything can pull it, and its 16' length and folding trailer tongue means that it will fit into most suburban garages without the need to rent a slip. I will deliver this boat free up to 300 miles from Murfreesboro Tennessee. Beyond that additional fees may apply.

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

21 Feet 1991 James Anthony Runabout
A dear friend of mine (friend 1) saw this boat at a boat show in Annapolis, Md in 1994. He was taken by its style and construction, He was so taken by the boat he started to investigate the brand. He found that there were only 18 of these boats manufactured. They were all special order boats for VIPs. A year or two later, the same boat he saw at Annapolis became available for purchase, so he bought it. A few years later he found that one of the 27’ versions came up for sale.... he upgraded to the 27’, & sold the 21’ to a mutual friend(friend2) It just so happens that friend 2 had just purchased a new 26’SeaRay, that he decided was too big. So, friend 2 took his new SeaRay and his newly acquired 21’James Anthony back to his SeaRay dealer and had the complete drive trains swapped. He sold the SeaRay, and put approximately 50 hours on the James Anthony on the Chicahomany River where he lives. He then parked the boat under his lean-to where it stayed for 14 years, until I persuaded him to sell it to me. In the last 2 1/2 years I have completely gone through the boat. All the wood is refinished to a very high standard, all leather Upolstry has been replaced, an extensive sorting of the mechanicals (list available upon request).

19 Feet 1952 Chris Craft Racing Runabout
Completely rebuilt bottom with inner mahogany diagonal and outer planks set in 5200, hull bronze fastened and all questionable wood replaced. The boat has a 5200 "no soak" bottom and has no plywood. Proper fasteners were used in the bottom planking. It also has the original style Kapok seat cushions with labels. The MBL was completely rebuilt by a master marine engine mechanic and has run flawlessly since installed. Included is a custom trailer. This boat has won many awards and has a long history of winning Best-in-Show and Best-in-Class. It is possibly the best racer available at a realistic price. Fresh varnish was put onto the boat in 2019. • This is a high performance Racing Runabout completed with care and attention to details to allow it to judge well in shows and to enjoy out in the water. It has always been a turn-key boat since restoration and the ONLY problem I have had is the odd time running out of gas, but don’t tell anyone…. :~) • MBL 158hp - “blueprinted” Now 225-250hp - GPS just under 50MPH (49.6 MPH was the fastest recorded) Rebuilt by the late George Schin in Florida. A highly regarded ACBS engine restorer know for increasing horsepower while still maintaining a strong and durable engine. Used an intake manifold from a MCL to allow dual carburetors. • Oil filter added. • Fuel & water filter - canister style • Pertronix ignitor replacing points. (Comes with extra ignitor for security although I never needed it) • PYI shaft seal. Pack-less and dripless, the PSS Shaft Seal helps to eliminate water in the bilge (100% water tight) & wear to the propeller shaft. • modern ACME propeller - 13" x 17” with tip cup to fine tune RPM to approx 3500-3600. Boat comes with original propeller as spare. • proper square head on engine lag bolts into stringers • Custom tandem axel trailer included - electric brakes & LED lights • Fresh varnish 2019 • Multiple award winner - long history of “Best in Class” & “Best in Show” - consistent ~95-99 point boat. Always depends on the judging. Some judges don’t notice the extra carburetor ;~) • 12 volt conversion. Easy to loose a point here. • 5200 no-soak bottom. NO PLYWOOD and proper fasteners in inner diagonal bottom planking • Kapock cushions with labels - proper and very rare in restorations • Comes with original 1952 life preserver for “show".
