Lets take a trip down memory lane and understand the origin behind this unique boat. The official company was called Hartley & Brookes, renowned for its unique business model which is Boat Plans. Their first plans were sold for home construction in 1938, and its estimated that more than 100,000 Hartley Boats have been built.

Here up for auction is a piece of timeless history, A 20-foot plywood boat reinforced with fiberglass to provide that extra level of strength and durability. Shes powered by a 4.1L Ford Falcon marinzed engine.

The overall condition of this boat is extremely tidy for its age and has been very well cared for by its one previous owner for the last 50 years. Its now time for this gem to find its new owner so if youre in the market for a piece of history, this is it!
