SUMMER BREEZE: Born in 1960 and reborn in 2007, Summer Breeze is one of the finest examples of a timber day boat restoration seen in many years.
The original Owens hull has been fiberglassed to the waterline and completely rebuilt above the gunnel leaving her with a classic timber 50's ski boat style with the confidence of a modern vessel. No expense was spared in the rebuild in 2007 to create a timeless classic boat with simplicity and minimum maintenance in mind Summer Breeze is truly a masterpiece. This restoration was completed by a professional and well known shipwright and the repower carried out by Tony Clapson, one of the best marine engineers in Sydney.
The small block Mercruiser Ski boat engine 350 with only 226 hours, thrusts the shaft and 4 blade propeller with confidence making her capable of some rough play, but perfect for cruising the rivers and harbour for extended day use or the occasional overnight with accommodation provided by the forward V-berth.
This boat truly is a one of a kind and a real head turner. The "Wasabi" coloured hull stands out across the water and onlookers turn green with envy of the large cockpit capable of entertaining 10 guests comfortably. The tan bimini provides perfect protection from the Australian elements and the matching storm covers ensure this beautiful vessel is protected from the weather once you eventually decide to head home.
Picture yourself entertaining guests or fishing with the kids this summer and cooling down with a swim off the back, jumping back on board using the stainless steel swim ladder and grabbing a cold drink from the enclosed self draining ice chests. Summer Breeze is beautifully presented and will be sadly missed by its current owner, however has been priced for a quick sale.
Please give us a call for full specs and history. Inspection is a must to ensure you don't miss the opportunity to secure this beautiful example of Australian boating history.
Conveniently located on our marina on the port hacking. Please call to arrange a suitable inspection time. Weekend inspections welcome
