In 1909 G.Reid Richardson founded the Richardson Boat Company in North Tonawanda, New York to build high quality boats at a fair price. History has shown that he was quite successful in this undertaking. Over the years many types of boats were produced including not only cruising vessels but sailboats, runabouts, racing boats and military craft during the war years. In the late 1920's standardized models were in production and the highly successful CRUISABOUT models like this were introduced. High quality cedar hulls with white oak frames and mahogany cabins, usually powered with Gray Marine engines, were produced in great numbers. The Richardson Boat Company organized "Sailaways" where the owners of newly purchased boats were encouraged to congregate in North Tonawanda and join in a cruise down the Erie Canal to New York City.
This is a much loved and painstakingly restored Richardson cruiser. Just five years ago the motors were replaced and have very low hours! All new electricals. Custom canvas enclosures. Teak swim platform, Custom curtains, cushions and sisal rugs throughout. Varnished every year. This cruisabout gets a lot of attention! They just don’t make ‘em like this any more! This wonderful example of living maritime history is appropriately updated for today’s boating. Throttle up her twin screws on a crossing or lazily cruise the shoreline…she is plenty spacious to share comfortably with family and friends.
