Description
Asking price of $6,500.00 is the boats appraised value by an expert for the estate. The customized trailer and additional items are free.

My father was the only owner of this handcrafted original Raveau wood racing boat. The story my father told was that my Grandfather knew Marcel Raveau when he lived on Long Island and had the boat customized for him. We found old videos of my father racing it on Kinderhook Lake in upstate NY, and he FLEW in it. It has not been used in many, many years. It appears to only need cosmetic restoration.

Raveau Boat History: Raveau boats were first built by Marcel Raveau, in 1939 in Long Island, NY, where he had installed his shipyard. In the late 1940's the boats became known for their racing success and were recognized for their performance, especially during the difficult endurance race from Albany to NY on the Hudson River.
• Boat: 13 feet, Trailer: 18 feet, Boat ID: NY1014AL
• Unless being used, both have always been kept away from the elements and stored indoors. It is currently in
a storage pod on my property in upstate NY.
• I have recent registrations for the boat and trailer. I don't have any of the original paperwork from 1956.
• I don't have the original motor. We took items related to the boat and included them with the sale price.
Everything is pictured in a photo except for the canvas cover.

The trailer is customized for this boat. It too has been owned only by my father since 1956. We used it to move the boat, so we know that it works. It's very solid, we think my father did some additional customizing, like raising the tail lights. It has minimal rust because it was kept indoors.

I tried to capture pictures of all of the details. If you're interested, please feel free to email me. Appraisal is available as well. Feel free to call, 518-506-8490, or email ocean1014@aol.com
