NEW LISTING!!1953 27' Shepherd Runabout- This amazing craft was painstakingly restored by Bergersen Boat Co.  This hull is #13 in the first series of 27' Shepherds built with a beam of 9' 6".  This boat boasts the rare 331Chrysler Hemis first offered in 1953.  The engines were just overhauled including the Chrysler V-drive transmissions that have all reconditioned clutch packs and seals. Top speed is 42 mph.  This boat comes complete with kerosene stove top, head, original stainless cooler and sink.  The bottom is original and the hull sides have been refastened with silicon bronze screws.  All bungs were made from original old stock Honduras Mahogany from a 'donor Shepherd'. This craft has the original throttle and shift control levers that have been custom machined to operate modern control cables.  You will never find a smoother shift on a Shepherd.  The 200+ HP Chrysler Hemis have modern Delco electronic ignition systems that we machined parts and adapters to accept this incredible upgrade.  With this new ignition system the engines run better than they did when brand new.  The boat has 15 coats of Epifanes varnish just applied, restored windlass winch for the anchor, a custom built mahogany swim platform which mirrors the intricate Bubinga and teak grating on the floor in the boat. Winner of the 2016 Geneva Lakes Boat Show Captain's Choice Award. $210,000

NEW LISTING! 1969 23' Chris Craft Lancer- This has been a one owner boat, meticulously maintained with well documented service records and always kept on Lake Geneva.  Chris Craft Lancers have become a very collectible boat because of their longevity.  When these boats were built fiberglass was in it's infancy and no one knew how it would last so Chris Craft over built their boats.  There have been many advances in fiberglass hulls and many newer boats have been recycled or discarded from fatigue but this Lancer is still going strong! Powered with a Chris Craft 307Q, 200 HP and a Volvo outdrive.  Call Lars for a showing $10,900

This 1964 22' Gage Hacker is in excellent condition.  It boasts a V-8, 283 Corvette engine, newer teak Nautalex decking, beautifully upholstered interior and original hardware.  Gage Hackers are noted as being well performing, high quality boats which were built in the 1960's at a boatyard right here in Williams Bay, WI using traditional plank on frame construction.  They were designed by naval architect John Hacker, famous for the slightly convex bottom sections of his smooth riding boats-designed to handle well in the chop of Lake Geneva. The distinctive white highlight on the sides of the Gage Hackers came from industrial designer Brooks Stevens who developed the look of the boat above the water line. You can own this respected part of the rich historic tapestry of Geneva Lake boats for $25,000.  Call Lars at 262-215-8286 to schedule a showing.
