From the Owner

Originally discovered in a boathouse on Lake Nipissing in the late 1970’s, this boat later spent time outside in the elements  while changing hands a few times. In 1989, Peter Breen purchased her and started the restoration process. This is the boat that first brought Rick McGraw to the shop and sparked a decades long collaboration and friendship. Built at 20′ in length, this is the only Greavette Gentleman’s racer of these proportions known to exist. A very low free-board, and sleek lines, with a covered mother-in-law cockpit, make this a very cool looking boat. Powered with a 318 cu.in. Chrysler V-8, that barely fits in the compartment, ‘The Jeffrey’ is a real thrill to drive. Rick enjoys using the boat regularly, and loves to see how close to the edge of the seat he can get accompanying crew.
