1923 Fay & Bowen 20ft Launch

by

$28,500.00

This is a 1923 Fay & Bowen 20ft Launch.

Considered by some to be the pinnacle of classic boat styling, Fay & Bowens have a distinctive, refined shape with classic brass fittings. Operating as the Fay & Bowen Engine Company out of Geneva, NY in 1904, Walter Fay and Ernest Bowen built an extensive dealer network to sell their engines and boats. The company built only around 900 boats up until its demise, a few months before the stock market crash of 1929. Fay & Bowen built beautiful launches, both of open and long-deck, auto-boat configurations, and often with strongly radiused transoms as well as torpedo sterns. Because of their beautiful lines and their impressive feel on the water, Fay & Bowen boats today are highly sought after.

This Fay & Bowen is powered with a Chris Craft 4 cylinder engine. It has a fiberglass bottom that is in excellent condition with no leaks. The deck is in good condition and the deck varnish is in fair condition. The hull sides paint is fair, but the framing structure is solid. The interior upholstery is in good condition with no rips or tears.

This boat comes with a full custom cover, custom interior carpets, 2 old style rope fenders and a custom 1996 Wesco trailer with a folding tongue.

This Fay & Bowen has been well maintained by its current owner, is turn key, and ready to be used!
