1958 Mahogany Whirlwind Runabout

Beautiful 17' mahogany runabout, lovingly restored with a 1964 60 hp Johnson outboard.

This boat is fast, fine, and fun.

It has been restored to fine condition, the Johnson starts and runs great.

Hull is hot molded 7 layer African mahogany, decking is meranti mahogany plywood, BS 1088 marine grade, varnished to a high gloss.

New mahogany windshield frame with new lexan "glass".

Comes with new 6 gallon fuel tank and fuel lines, new battery, engine controls, steering cables, new tachometer and volt meter.

The Whirlwind company built boats in Maryland after WW II when their aircraft manufacturing business fell off.

They were in the boat business until 1962.

The hull is extremely strong, layers of veneer formed over a mold with glue between each layer, then the hull was baked in an oven to set the glue.
