Atlanta Boat Works began manufacturing AristoCraft boats in 1946 following Claude Turner's return from service during World War II. Production began with five employees at a downtown Atlanta location. These early days saw the production of an open fishing-type boat which was replaced in 1947 with the models that AristoCraft is known for.
          The Typhoon, a 12' 2-seater runabout, was introduced, followed by a 13' Torpedo that had a barrel stern.
 I am not an expert on boats by any means but with the research I have done I believe this is a 1953 model.It is basically a barn find; having sat in a barn since 1969.  I purchased it from the second owner who bought it when he was 19 years old. and it seems to be better than 90% complete with no rot
The nice thing about this boat as all missing parts/trim are still available from the Atlanta Boat Works Company.  Please visit there website to see their history and all the boats that they made.
The boat comes with  a trailer and the motor is Mercury Mark 55 Thunderbolt Four outboard motor. Which is a 40 horsepower motor and I have the owners manual. I do not know thecondition of the motor. The tires on the trailer have plenty of tread and I had no issues towing it 35 miles to where it is currently located.This boat would make an excellent fall/winter projectIf you have questions I would suggest you call or text me at 828-489-6075This boat is being sold with a bill of sale and it is being as is where is so please bid accordingly.
