New Speedboat Has Classic Appeal, Modern Construction

Stephens Waring Yacht Design of Belfast, Maine, introduces a fresh take on the classic Gold Cup racer. Destined for the pristine lakes of upstate New York, our speedboat features gleaming mahogany topsides over a modern clean-running deep-vee underbody. A fuel-injected V-8 pushes her to 60 mph. Sumptuous leather appoints the cockpit, and aft hatches open to reveal a stern platform and boarding ladder for a mid-lake dip. For the wind-in-your-hair experience of 1920s boating, our speedboat is unbeatable.

The first hull is under construction in cold-molded wood by Tumblehome Boatshop in upstate New York. Next spring, she will grace the waters of Lake George, home to such powerboat icons as Baby Bootlegger. She’ll be right at home in her custom-built boathouse, a delightful diversion for her owners’ summer residence.
