(New Hampshire) and sold in April 1995.  Then re-sold at the NHBM auction in 2003+/-.  Used only 4 times since 2003.  What you see is the exact condition it was restored to in 1994/95, the condition it remains in today.  Depicted in Peter Ferber's 2001 New England Antique & Classic Boat Show Poster.Prior to my purchase there was a repair in the forward hull (see pic), part of the 1994/95 restoration.  The hull as a perfect smooth finish and you cannot tell there has been a repair from the outside.  The restorer chose not to pull the whole boat apart to fix it as the rest of the boat did not deserve such invasive action.
1979 Johnson 15 hp motor included.  The trailer is included.Local pick-up or as specified in the description above, please contact seller before bidding.  PayPal accepted.
Buyer responsible for any sales tax, if applicable, when they register the boat and trailer.The famous Penn Yan Swift first appeared in the 1950 catalog, and was offered continuously through 1962.  Available in 10ft, 12ft, 13ft and 14ft lengths at various times, this sleek craft was advertised as a "stock utility outboard racing runabout".  Rated for outboard motors up to 33 hp, the Swift quickly became known as "the sports car of the waterways".  The boat shown here, the popular 12ft CZT model, would have been originally purchased from Penn Yan Boats, Inc.
