Lot #1542.1 - A most unique and beautiful vintage toy, or perhaps a stylish tender for a vintage motor yacht, this spectacular, hand-made vessel is a re-creation of a boat that builder Henry Baverstock produced as a prototype commissioned by the U.S. Coast Guard in 1936. His grandson still possessed the original plans and decided to undertake a labor of love build replicating the original to astounding success. The workmanship and detail are truly over the top in all the best ways with gleaming brass fittings and hand-formed copper trim everywhere you look. This boat is powered by a modern 4-stroke, 9.8hp motor that will prove reliable and adds to the versatility, as this boat will be welcome in places where they may have restrictions on noise or power. This Baver Craft re-creation was the crowd darling at the Lake Arrowhead Wooden Boat Show where it won People's Choice in 2004 shortly after it was completed.
