Rare 1927 SeaBird Triple Cockpit Runabout of Honduras Mahogany with Solid Transom
Award-Winning and Rare 1927 SeaBird Triple Cockpit Runabout made of Honduras Mahogany is ready for a new owner.
Own a piece of boating history with this stunning 21' SeaBird Triple Runabout that is one of only six SeaBirds built by The Port Carling Boat Works in 1927, only 2 years after their inception.
Built to last with her mahogany lapstrake construction, copper rivets and solid mahogany transom, you would be hard-pressed to find one like it anywhere else in the world.
You must see this vessel in person to truly appreciate the beautiful craftsmanship and work that went into building this gorgeous work of art that will continue to stand the test of time, as it has for nearly 100 years. It has the original Buchanan Meteor Flathead 6 Engine and the original gauge panel.
All of the chrome hardware is in really good condition and includes what you need to add a bimini. The wood is solid, although it could use a coat of varnish and the bottom should be painted. It was in working condition when it was stored a few years ago. The keel plate that is shown is not the correct one, but the seller has it and will install it before it is sold.
This beauty was built with Canada's conditions in mind, and the current owner acquired the vessel when it was shown to them on a trip to Port Carling, Ontario and the Muskoka chain of lakes, to seek out parts for the 1932 model they also own. It has been used mostly on the Great Lakes, where she has remained since being brought to the states.
It was taken care of over the years and you can really see the hard work and love that went into restoring her, although her engine is original. Since the owner also owns a nearly matching 1932 version, he has decided to part with this one. She has competed in and won the top award in multiple shows across the country from Fon du Lac to Bar Harbor and everywhere in between.
The cockpit covers shown in the first photo are not included however the seller has stated he will create templates of muslin so the new owner of this amazing boat can have new ones made. The flag pole for the back is included, without the light.
The trailer shown in the photos is not the one the seller is including with the boat, however, it does come with a laser shot trailer that is similar to the one in the photos, with the only exception being the condition. He just needs to swap them out. The boat is stored indoors right now and extreme weather prevented outdoor photos to be taken, but once it warms up a bit and the keel plate is replaced, more photos will be provided.
According to the owner, this antique runabout used to be owned by royalty and was being kept on a private island in Ontario when they learned of its existence. The history of the company that made it is fascinating as well.
