1947 Higgins Speedster Antique in Elk Grove, California

Stock #245516

This Higgins Speedster is a rare boat indeed. Developed and manufactured by Andrew Higgins, this particular boat has been stored indoors its entire life and looks great. The current owner has recently acquired it so not a lot about it is known.

There is the original engine manual that comes with the boat, verifying the engine has twin Carter carburetors and 225 horsepower. A video clip of the boat on the water (May 2021) will be appended to the existing video.

Almost everything is original. We notice the bottom has been fitted with a fiberglass shell. The engine was run briefly, it sounded amazing.

The boat is in use while it is for sale. If you are a wood antique boat fan and want to know more about this Higgins, come to Elk Grove, CA.
