General Details

This hull is 1 of 5 ever made !

Wlat Mallon Sr. (founder of Correct Craft) custom made 5 boats like this one for Cypress Gardens Ski School in Florida in 1958. Cypress Gardens had a ski show that they would put on and these were the tow boats they used. Cypress Gadens is also shere numerous movies and TV shows were filmed. Normally this boat would have been made all of one type of wood (typically Honduran Mahogany) and what makes this boat custom was that there was a lighter wood inlay, Brazilain Yellow Wood (Pau Amarello) on the deck.

In 1994 the boat was completely rebuilt by Glen Cove Boat Works to look how it originally would have, to the extent of $20,000+ Glen Cove collaborated with Walt Maloon to make sure it was right.

According to numerous antique boat experts, the boat, not including the engine is worth an estimated $20,000 $25,000.


In 1962 Andy Granatelli had 10 custom Packard 352 Cu. Ic. engines made for his race cars. They all had dual 4 barrel carberators. He had the engines bored to 374 Cu. In. After this, he added McCulloch superchargers in order to put them in race cars to beat the land speed record on the boneville salt flats. This engine has been totally blue printed with a hot cam, sodium valves and a full amin bearing girdle to support the bottom end. The engine is emerald green with polished aluminum cover on the supercharger box and chrome valve covers and alternator.

The engine alone is worth over $20,000-$25,000

The boat's name and artwork are all 24 carat gold leaf
