1936 Gar Wood Triple Cockpit 28′

by

$250,000.00

1936 Gar Wood Triple Cockpit 28′ The 28′ Gar Wood was their top of the line runabout. Lake Tahoe probably has more of them and anywhere due to their immediate popularity as one of the best riding boats you could buy at the time. They still hold that distinction, due to a deep bottom and deep coil sprung seats that soak up the bumps. Raccoon is an older restoration, but has been recently refurbished including a complete strip and re-varnishing and new leather seating. She has a West System bottom and comes on a custom built triple axle trailer. Special to this boat is the 315 hp model 308 Scripps V-12. Thought not original to this hull, the installation was done as the factory would have done it and the most discriminating  judge would not be able to tell that it is not original. The 1936 Gar Wood Triple Cockpit 28′ is an elegant boat with a perfect balance of design and proportion. The overall design, set off by beautifully designed hardware and plush leather seating exemplify the great style of the 30’s. Think of this as a water going Packard. A perfect boat to take eight people on style and comfort on Lake Tahoe. For more on Gar Wood boats, go to http://garwood.com
