For your consideration is a classic 1963 Thompson Super Lancer wood boat, length 18’-6”, beam 7’-6”.  Showroom condition, yet better than when new!  Lapstrake planking over steam bent oak frames.  Vintage 15 gallon built-in gas tank, Bimini top, screened camping top, yet updated with modern gauges, finishes, and running gear; forward facing windows are operable.  Included is a restored 115HP, 1984 Johnson outboard motor with new battery, and a double-axle trailer with new rims/tires.  Note that the steering wheel shown in photo one has been replaced with a stainless steel/mahogany upgrade, as indicated in photo three.  Also included is spare rub rail material, Bimini and camper tops, life preservers, and fire extinguisher.   This very collectible boat looks and runs great, and is eagerly awaiting your name on the transom.  I doubt that you will find a better example for sale of such a beautiful vintage wood boat in exceptional condition!  Although this won't fit under the Christmas tree, ownership will bring years of many smiles to the owner, as well as the casual observer.  Both the boat and trailer are titled in NC.  Note that the boat alone (without motor) is appraised for insurance purposes at $10,000.   As an incentive to the "Buy it Now" offer, I will gladly store this fine craft under overhead cover until spring (April), 2017 at no extra cost ($100/month value).  For the successful buyer, at your option I will personally deliver this boat at no extra charge within 150 miles of western NC (28741); transport costs beyond 150 miles can be arranged for a reasonable mileage fee, depending upon distance.   PayPal deposit of $2,000 required within 24 hours.  Final payment can be made by Cashier's Check (utilizing USPS Express Mail), wire transfer from your banking account, or PayPal.  Balance due within seven (7) days.  Due to the unique nature of this offering, no return is available.  I am also flexible for pickup arrangements.   You won't be disappointed!  For more information, kindly contact Bruce, 828-200-0228.
