This Fully Restored 1969 Boston Water Nauset 17 represents a three year labor of love to bring the boat and its motor back to its original condition. THIS IS NOT A PROJECT BOAT. Boston Whaler fans will be wowed by the Fisher Pierce 4 stroke outboard motor. Not only does the motor operate as if it were new, owner will include all of the spare parts he has acquired during the restoration. Owner states that there are enough spare parts to build another motor.
The boat has been restored from the hull up; new gelcoat, fiberglass repair, and attention to detail and hardware topside. And yes, the engine was also restored and will reliably get the boat across the water.
The owner's goal for the restoration was to keep everything exactly how it was when it came out of the Boston Whaler factory, where possible. Everything on this boat is original, down to the two cushions, brass fasteners, and the red compass. None of the hardware fixtures are aftermarket; all the original ones were removed and re-chromed.
Many boaters and even Boston Whaler fans are unaware that Boston Whaler's parent company, Fisher Pierce, also manufactured and sold outboard engines back in the late 1960's. As you might expect, these were not just any old outboard; they were very innovative four-cycle engines that were unlike any other outboard available in the market at that time. Although Dick Fisher did not invent or initially develop the engine, he recognized its superiority over other outboards. The acquisition of this engine made Fisher Pierce capable of delivering the boat (Boston Whaler) and the engine (Bearcat) in a single package. Both of these trends (vertical integration and four-cycle engine production) have resumed in the recreational marine industry some thirty years later. Ironically, the Fisher Pierce Bearcat 55 engine was one of the last applications of this innovative, lightweight four-cylinder motor. Its history goes back a long way, beginning prior to World War II.
