I love wood boats of yesteryear …

I have water skied since 11 years of age that is 50 years ago and of course the boats then were timber. Having always admired the beauty and craftsmanship of these boats I save images that I come across to a Pinterest page Wooden Boats.

Here is a gallery of a few that I have collected …

I hope you enjoyed these images if so go to my Pinterest page Wooden Boats there is a few thousand more images to view. Obviously there is a lot of devotees to wooden boats.

That would burn your eyebrows

Hope you enjoyed.

Water skied since I was 11 this is a long term friend of mine’s boat a 50 year old Everingham which he has restored.

Out of respect and admiration for all the work involved to restore this boat Bear has to share these picture galleries with you …

This is what it looked like before the restoration …

Most beautiful motorboat ever …

You don’t know how much Bear would like to own this.

Maybe I can sell the house?

I have waterskied since 11 and the boats those days (60’s) were real wood beauties so I want this one as the best …

The 1974 Riva Aquarama Special “Lealena,” one of only 769 Aquaramas constructed, is a twin-V8 powered wooden runabout. The hull is lined in varnished mahogany, and the boat was powered by two engines.

“A classic Italian motor boat — of a type widely regarded as one of the most beautiful ever built – will cross the block in May at an auction in Monaco.”

I understand USD 600,000 reserve so if you like maybe you will be bidding against Bear!

Why won’t the real estate agent answer my calls?
