From the Owner

Allan Weisberg commissioned this rare Ditchburn rear-drive triple cockpit in 2010, and over 30 months, it had new life breathed into it. At 28.5′, this may be the only surviving rear-drive triple cockpit built by Ditchburn Boats. 2 bench seats in the rear cockpit provide ample seating for 4-5 passengers, while a removable cover over the front cockpit gives seating for another 2. The original windshield is a very special piece, unique to this boat. The 1920’s saw the rise of planing hulls in the mainstream boating community, which began the phase out of launches in most applications. Restoration was completed in 2012, and the family has been enjoying rides ever since.
