Here is a totally restored Jacrim Seaworthy Pond yacht which we just acquired from a collector in Florida.
This is a very unique and special Seaworthy pond boat because it was made during the 2 year transition period when the original founder, Mr. Rimmer had been producing these boats since the early 1920's.
In 1938, Rimmer changed the name of the company to "Seaworthy Boats" and acquired a partner to help him grow the business. The name "Keystone" did not exist anymore and their new line of boats were renamed " Seaworthy". For the first 2 or so years, they used the "Keystone" design but labeled all of their boats with the "Seaworthy" label.
We know this because if you look at the design of this particular boat it looks like a "keystone" but has the "Seaworthy label!!
Wow!..very unusual and rare. So, this is called a Seaworthy "Transitional" pond boat.
When we received it in our shop, we determined that the original color scheme was green and navy blue. We repainted the boat these two colors and added some original new pieces to the accent and design. If you look at the tiller and specifically the tiller control, you see an "elastic band". This was part of the original "Keystone" design and was transitioned to Seaworthy.
The elastic band is used to control the main sail and rutter while the boat "Tacks left and right" in the open water (Yes, you can sail this boat if you wish).
The sails are not original but were newly added earlier. We also added some brass accents to the boat and also added new rigging. This pond boat measures: 21"L X 38"H X 4"W ( In the stand). The stand is newly made in our shop and has a high quality felt bottom.
This is a very historic and unique pond boat, and it would be a great gift for the person who loves the ocean, history and nautical decor. A real conversation piece when displayed on a bay window or shelf area, fireplace where all can enjoy it!
As with all of our vintage yachts, we do ship free and partially disassemble for safe shipping. Just attach the main sail and tighten some rigging and you're ready to enjoy!
We will include instructions for assembly and also email you detailed pictures for easy assembly.
