Comments About The Boat
1948 Shepherd Utility 17.5 ft, fully restored in 2003 by Ken Wykes (Elgin, ON), the best "Shepherd Man" in North
Re-varnished on schedule in 2008.
All correct and original hardware. +90% original wood.
Solid and dry.
135 HP Chrysler Crown with dual carburetors for that little "extra".
The engine has not been fully rebuilt, but was
fully serviced and runs great with new rings and seals.
No one EVER mistakes this boat for a Chris or Century,
that's for sure!
Custom fit Shorelander trailer with surge brakes included.
Unique Shepherd Canadian construction
means the boat is tight and perfect for trailering and launching without soaking.
This was a major factor in my
purchase years ago.
It's been a great boat, but I am making room for a new project – another Shepherd, of course!
If you want a fun boat, ready for the water in minutes…give me a call.
