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.

A full description of the process can be seen here:

A short video of the boat on the water is here:

These boats are rare and treasured by their owners.

This boat is a fast and beautiful boat that is tons of fun on the water.

Comes on a tilt trailer equipped with new wheels and tires, bearings, hitch, wiring and lights.

$6500.00 and she is yours!

Ed:

I hope this is how to reply to your inquiry and you receive this promptly.

The boat has been in the water several times this summer.

It runs very well and we have enjoyed it very much.

It does have a convertible top, a full custom made cover, and cushions for all the seats.

The motor is a 1963 60 horse Johnson that runs great.

I would like to sell it because I am running out of room to store boats and other motorized stuff, plus I am more of a sailor than a motorized boat enthusiast.

Hartland, VT is about 10 miles south of White River Junction, exit 9 on I-91.

If you would like I can send pictures to you, email me directly at tnwilliamson@gmail.com
