1956 SHEPHERD 27' EXPRESS RUNABOUT - here is a great project boat just needing completion.  These boats are commonly referred to as the RIVAs of North America and the ultimate Cocktail Cruisers. Restored they have been known to sell for in excess of $100K or more.  Built in the Niagara Falls area they were designed to handle the Great Lakes weather so will handle any of the smaller lakes with ease.

Over $80K worth of work was done to the boat prior to the work stoppage.  The Bottom was glassed and hull sides were worked on but will need some more work from storage. The interior will need to be completely re-done. Most all Deck and Cabinetry hardware was re-plated to show quality and properly stored.  The original engines (331ci Chrysler Marine Hemis with v-drives) were sold separate from the boat by the previous owner. We do however have a matching set of Chrysler Crown Flathead 6's with V-Drives that came out of another Shepherd that are available or we can supply new V8 power & transmissions through our Parts Department.

We would be more than happy to supply a detailed estimate to complete this boat for you if desired.
