  • 1916 Lawley 37ft Vee Bottom Launch

    $350,000.00

    1916 Lawley 37ft Vee Bottom Launch

    $350,000.00

    This is a very rare 1916 Lawley 37ft Vee Bottom Launch.

    Miami is an historical boat that was custom built by Lawley for Carl Fisher. Mr. Fisher was an American Entrepreneur and among many other things the main real estate developer of Miami Beach. Fisher needed a comfortable fast cruiser for his new playground and turned to the Lawley Boat Company to build him his custom boat.

    Miami was used in Florida and her name is a tribute to that history. Carl Fisher then sold it and shipped it to Michigan where it was used and loved for many years. The Michigan owner knew that a full restoration was due, but the cost prohibited him from proceeding. In 1986, Sierra Boat’s manager Dick Clark was shown Miami during one of his annual boat hunting trips and immediately recognized Miami as a boat worthy of a good home and a proper restoration. Miami arrived at Sierra Boat in 1987 and sat until 1990 when her current owner purchased the boat and set about formulating a restoration plan.

    The restoration project took the approach that all visible details would be as faithful as possible, but the powerplant and mechanical systems would be modern. Considering its age at the time, Miami was in remarkable shape. The restoration project started with the hull and continued with the cabin and complete deck replacement. The engine was replaced with a Chrysler 440 V8 to give it the performance needed in Lake Tahoe’s altitude. Miami made her first sea trial on Tahoe in the fall of 1995. In the summer of 1996, she was honored with the best professional restoration award at the Tahoe Concours d’Elegance.

    Miami has been stored and maintained by Sierra Boat since its Tahoe Arrival in 1987. The boat received a brand new cold molded bottom completed in the spring of 2011. All annual maintenance has been kept up with corresponding records. Miami is birthed for the summer months in a slip at Sierra Boat.

    In 1997, Classic Boating did an extensive article on Miami’s history and her 1990-1995 restoration project. Please see the pictures for the scanned version of the article as it goes into great detail. Miami is truly a one of a kind historical boat that is ready for the next chapter of her life!

    1918 Fay & Bowen 27ft Launch

    $59,000.00

    1918 Fay & Bowen Launch.

    This is an early model, hull number 588. It is a very original boat. The decks are new, but it is believed that the rest of the boat is all original including the bottom. The boat is powered by a very rare original Fay & Bowen model LC-41 with 27 hp. This boat is in fine shape cosmetically and runs well with the original engine. As with all boats of this construction type, butted planks with no battens, it takes weeks to soak up the original bottom. It is due for a new bottom and a buyer needs to be aware that this work should be done prior to use. Comes on a fitted cradle. Price reduced, make offer!

    Oski III 1924 Stephens 30ft Coaching Launch – SOLD

    $69,000.00

    Oski III 1924 Stephens 30ft Coaching Launch – SOLD

    $69,000.00

    Oski III is a 1924 Stephens 30ft Coaching Launch.

    The Oski III will always hold a special place in the hearts of many Cal Berkeley alumni.  Built in 1924 by Stephens Brothers Boat Builders and Designers in Stockton, California, Oski III was a custom commission by Cal Crew coaching legend Ky Ebright.  She was named after one of the campus’ oldest yells, “Oski Wow Wow, Whiskey Wee Wee, California Wow” and served as Ky’s training yacht for Cal crews for 32 years, including three Olympics at which Cal crews won gold medals.  She was crated up and shipped to Europe by ocean liner for the Amsterdam Olympics in 1928 and again for the London Olympics in 1948.

    Oski III was designed to give the coach privacy in the cockpit and was built to potentially retrieve an additional 9-person crew in the event their shell was swamped.  After Ky Ebright retired in 1959, Jim Lemmon assumed coaching responsibilities and continued using Oski III for an additional 7 years before she was officially retired.  Sold by the University in 1968 and abandoned on a mudflat by the new owner in 1983, few who saw Oski III during that period would have ever imagined that she could be restored to her former glory.  After numerous renovations, Oski III is once again the beauty she was during Ky Ebright’s time.
