1953 SHEPHERD 22' VEE UTILITY - this is the Model 22-110 which is distinguished from the Model 110S or Sportsman which was the Runabout version with a Vee Drive set up vs the utilities Direct Drive.  This boat was in pretty good shape when we got it but needed some minor plank repairs and a complete new interior.  The original Straight 8 Chrysler Royal engine was in the boat but needed a rebuild so the new owner decided to go with modern power.  In its place we installed a new Mercruiser 5.7L V8 with Velvet Drive.  Custom touches included a new swim gid integrated with the splash rails, Custom seats built to the same styling of seats in the bigger Shepherds, new two tone vinyl upholstery in Seafoam Green & White, custom designed engine box with built in cup holders, new Battleship Linoleum flooring, new Faria Gauges and all new wiring,  All the hardware was freshly chrome plated along with a custom chrome windshield topper which was custom designed along with the cutwater & transom bands, etc.

This boat now proudly sails in the area lakes of Northern Idaho.
