Very rare and one of only seven hacker-craft designed hutchinsons ever built! Sams surveyed and recently treated to a complete engine rebuild and resealing.� powered with a powerful chrysler marine 318ci v8.� upgraded no-soak bottom means immediate enjoyment with all leather seating surfaces! Hutchinson brothers boat works, inc. Was founded in alexandria bay, new york in a rented building in 1902. From 1902 to 1964, it is said that hutchinson built over 250 boats including houseboats, racing boats, launches, utilities, sedans , cruisers, runabouts and even boats for the war effort, many of their own design but some based off the designs of other famous manufacturers. They remain very tasteful and more exclusive alternatives to some of the more common hacker and chris craft brands, but arguably just as stylish and with craftsmanship second-to-none! The boat was professionally restored and fitted with a no-soak bottom! In the spirit of the original, it is powered by a recently rebuilt 318ci chrysler v8 gasoline engine (dated 1984) producing 235 horsepower! Power is transferred to the water via a velvet drive hydraulic marine transmission with reduction. All of the three cockpits are finished in an attractive nautical scheme of green vinyl with wood floors. The main cockpit has a triple windshield that gives the captain an outstanding view ahead! Other options include a banjo steering wheel, machine turned dash, electric horn, lots of storage compartments, fire extinguisher, polished stainless steel trim, rear grab handles, copper exhaust tips, sawyer oar, buoys, small anchor, plenty of rope, and a boat cover! This runabout was fully restored while with its maryland owner of 16 years and completed in 2001. It was the recipient of a society of american marine surveyors (sams) survey in mid-may of 2013 while stored in new york. It was found that there were no safety deficiencies and that the boat is ready for immediate service! �in the opinion of the surveyor, this translates into above average condition with a replacement cost of $125,000. In conclusion, the summary reads like this: "the vessel, saving grace, is a well-appointed and well powered vessel with sharp lines and profile. It is the surveyor's opinion that the vessel is suitable for its intended use as a recreation vessel." recent service since the report included a compression test in december of 2013, as well as a full rebuild of the 318ci engine including valves, pushrods, valve seats, pistons, camshaft, bearings, lifters, gaskets, oil pump and all hardware. Also done was a new chrysler cbe5 ignition module, fuel pump, battery cables, overhaul of all gauges and lights, new cnc machined 3-blade propeller and carburetor rebuild. This service totaled $4,417. In august of 2014, the boat was treated to engine starting, resealing of shaft log and any cracks and a lake test, before cleaning and putting back on the trailer, then received new wheels and tires in may of 2014. All said and done, over $10,900 was spent ensuring that the boat was in tip-top seaworthy condition since the survey. With sea trials last completed in 2014, it was reported by gps accuracy to achieve 42 mph with 4 occupants and a half tank of fuel.�� not too shabby! �we would invite any interested parties to call with additional questions!
