General Details

This gorgeous boat would make a perfect tender to a larger vessel.

This one of a kind tunnel-stern launch is based off the William Atkin's Rescue Minor design.  The builder added extra tumblehome to the stern, wheel steering, and beautiful teak decks to produce a boat that is truly a masterpiece.  She was built from mahogany, ipe, teak and marine ply.  She was then laminated with epoxy and multiple layers of 6 oz fiberglass cloth to produce a completely moisture resistant hull. 

Bar Hopper is powered by an inboard Yanmar 20 HP Diesel with only 85 hours.  She planes quickly and easily and handles like a dream.  She draws only 6" of water while underway and sips fuel at 0.6 gals/hr @ 14 knots.

A single axle trailer is included. 


Design Information
The original version of "Rescue Minor" was designed for the United States Navy as a shallow draft rescue boat for downed pilots in the Pacific theater during WWII.  The builder retained the original design for all wetted surfaces, but customized the vessel above the water line.

Brokers Remarks
This vessel is gorgeous and was built to last.  Her builder spared no expense in choosing top quality materials for her construction.   Her tunnel-stern makes her perfectly suited for shallow water bays and bayous, but her beefy construction and design make her excellent in rough water.  She has won several first place awards at the Perdido Wooden Boat Festival in Josephine Alabama over the past few years. Come take a look at her.  You will not be disappointed!
