Buy a piece of history. Rare Jersey Speed Skiff built by Harold Seaman. Seller has owned the boat, originally bought in 1972. He is a judge at many antique boat shows. He sold her a couple times, then ended up buying it back twice. Cedar hull construction. Flat bottom. Around 8 coats of varnish. Last in water in 2008.
Per the Seller: In the early 1990s, the Chevy 305 was added in, with only around 2-3 hours added since install. She'll run up to approximately 50mph with a cruise speed around 25-30mph. Borg Warner transmission.
The trailer is included. One light was damaged in storage, but the seller can fix this as part of any deal. He said the trailer is very roadworthy and he would not hesitate towing her anywhere!
(Please note the pictures of the gas tank show it reversed, as it was removed to be drained & cleaned when the boat was prepped for storage & winterized.)
Overall she seems to be in very good condition, although I'm not an antique boat expert by any means. Interior wood looks in very good shape. Exterior hull could probably use a bit of attention just due to lack of use. Inside stored.
Trailer looks rough but just needs paint & starboard tail light.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any specific questions you may have, to submit an offer, or schedule a showing.
