It doesn’t get much cleaner than this 1956 Carver Captain 15 ft. Runabout. I’ll be honest that I’ve been on a little bit of a kick with these smaller wooden classic boats lately. Could be the Wisconsin weather hinting at warming up or could just be chance. Either way this Carver Captain is a beauty. The woody has been owned and maintained by a single owner for he last 40 years. That certainly helps when the boat owner cares about the vessel the way this gentleman has.
The vintage mahogany boat is powered by a Mercury Mark 55 40HP Thunderbolt Four motor. Like the rest of the classic boat the motor looks superbly clean. The trailer is included and the seller is even throwing in a pair of vintage wooden waterskis. The skis aren’t going to make or break this deal by any means but they are a cool little add-on regardless. Everything on this classic woody is original. The Captain has been re-varnished and has a new coat of bottom paint. You are welcome to make an offer, but the seller also has a “Buy It Now” price of just $9,700. Given the pristine condition this 15 ft. runabout is in I think that’s very fair. Make yourself the Captain and consider purchasing this Carver Captain.
