This lovingly restored graded “A” 16 foot 1939 Gar Wood Ensign is a very rare example of the Gar Wood style and attention to detail. 

Every detail of this boat has been attended to, leaving nothing to be done but enjoying the ride. The details are too long a list so if your interested in a piece of history that will perform well for you for years, this is the vessel for you.

Please look up Gar Wood on the web to find information on one of the most interesting men in boating history. At vintage shows some people  unknowingly say “Chris Craft” at first glance. In actuality Gar Wood employed and trained the Chris Brothers prior to their establishment of Chris Craft boats.
