JS-00 “Orange Crate” - one of Jersey Speed Skiff racing’s most famous boats !!!

     

 

Few, if any, will argue with Orange Crate’s status as the first successful fiberglass racing skiff. Built in 1965, then she was stripped to bare hull and completely rebuilt, including all new wood bottom, stringers and bulkheads, by owner Skip Gillam and Roger Harris about eight years ago.  She is powered by a “built” for marine use 350 (Chris Craft conversion) with only two or three vintage regatta heats on it, a transmission and an electric water pump.  Skips says, “boat handles great and could be competitive today.”  She rides on a custom trailer built by Skip. 

 

The “turnkey” package, priced at $20,000 firm, includes bucket seats and a full bench seat, two vintage life jackets, full cover and spare tire.  Skip will deliver to a reasonable destination from his Hialeah, FL home.

 

This is a great ride, complete and ready to run on the vintage circuit !!!

 

Asking - $20,000

Reproduction Vintage Race Boats

 

     

     

   

We have recently completed four reproduction vintage race boats, and we are currently working on our fifth project, Sally Ann Jr. These reproductions are based on proven vintage designs, built with modern techniques and powered with modern marine engines. These custom boats are built to run hard and provide for many years of fun boat rides, with proven hull designs and plenty of power to run at hull speeds. We also work very closely with the owner on all the numerous decisions, to make them very personal and very special boats, for they are beautiful art forms.
