"Jesmond and Gloria I happened to read some of the testimonials posted on your website and after our recent dealings feel compelled to add my two cents worth despite the fact I never usually give written testimonials other than in my work environment .Firstly I have to say that everything I have read pretty much sums up your combined service and approach to selling and buying of the classic cars you represent .Secondly having brought two cars , one sight unseen, and sold two cars in the last 12 months I can only reiterate the comments of others regarding your honesty and integrity and good communication. As for Gloria's attention to getting the logistics arranged smoothly and other follow up given the unfortunate delivery issue with one of the cars I bought, I cannot say enough and appreciate the efforts .It truly is a pleasure working with you on my NZ fleet of vehicles. Having also had the chance to meet you and spend a few hours looking at and talking classic cars during my last visit to NZ it is a pleasure to see someone else with the same passion and knowledge of classic cars .I see that your business is not just a business but is a passion to do the right thing by the people you are working with, be they buyers or sellers and also to do the right thing by the cars you sell .Given we are now working on another sell and buy opportunity I am sure we will continue to have more dealings in the future as my little fleet takes further shape Best Regards"Don Learmonth, Asheville, NC USA
This is an early 1958 Wooden Boat was built by Robert C Mahan (of Mahan Boatbuilders in Redcliffs Christchurch, New Zealand), who we understand also built boats for Hamilton Jets, as well as other crafts.
We understand that this boat was actually built by Robert Mahan to use as his family boat in Akaroa and the Marlborough Sounds.
Many power boats were built for inboard motors - this one was built for outboard, which makes it somewhat rare.
Comes with a 68/69 Mercury 125hp motor - we never ran it but understand it runs well.
Boat is made of mahogany ply and wood is in very good condition.
Boat looks complete - seats are there, chrome bits from what we can see are all there.
Trailer is pretty much brand new and boat is being sold complete with trailer and motor in as is where is condition.
This would make an easy enough project for someone with the time to do it. We don't have the the time and are mainly into cars, so would even consider looking at a trade with a classic / vintage vehicle.
Please feel fee to ask questions :)
