Old Saybrook, CT 06475
This 12 foot long wood and canvas boat is very lightweight…in fact it only weighs about 98 lbs. Along with being light, it is also quiet on the water. As opposed to a plastic or aluminum boat, which tend to drum, wood and canvas act together to absorb sound.
Finished in a white semi-gloss hull and matte finish interior varnish with UV protection, the impression the boat gives is understated and elegant.
The soft glow of fresh matte finish varnish
Able to carry three or four people, the Sport Boat has two rowing stations, and can handle up to an eight HP outboard. What a perfect little boat for fishing, exploring a quiet pond, or to be used a tender for a classic wooden sailboat or large cruiser
1962 Penn Yan Baltic – $ 7,500
This 1962 Penn Yan 16 ft Baltic (Actual length is 15′-10″) served a camp in the Adirondacks until being brought to Connecticut in 2009 for restoration. The boat was completely disassembled, flipped, stripped of all old paint, sealed and caulked, and then reassembled and completely refinished. A 1965 Evinrude Starflight with 1962 coloring and covers was installed to return the boat to vintage power as shown in the original catalog.
The boat is in pristine condition and is a pleasure to drive on smooth water, confidently banking through turns. The engine starts and runs smoothly and powerfully with excellent compression in all cylinders, easily planing out with a full load of passengers and gear. The trailer has been rebuilt with new wiring, axle, leaf springs, hubs, bearings, guide poles, bunk coverings and winch.
With restoration complete in 2011, this boat was shown for the first time at the Southern New England Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Show in Essex Connecticut. It received a first place award in its class with special mention from the judges on the boat’s condition and original stain coloring of the brightwork. Whether on the road or in the water, admirers frequently give thumbs up signs and inquire about the year and history of the boat.
