Further Comments

1956 Dixie Craft Mahogany Wooden Boat.   

1956 Dixie Craft - Rare Collectors Boat - African Mahogany - Wood  **This is the only "manufactured" Dixie Craft known to exist! Not a "kit boat". Has actual ID# Stamped in Hull.

Listed in the Antique Boat Society as the Only Dixie Craft.

*Bottom Job - Complete.  *Inner Boat - Stained - Varnished - Complete.  *Almost ready for outer stain and varnish!  *Motor restored - over $2,000 just in motor - Zero Hours on Motor.  *Boat appraisal as sound, Good Condition, $8500 insurance value: boat + motor. Boats like this sell for $12,000-$20,000+ restored and this one is close to complete... this boat may be worth much more since this in the only one known to exist.

I hate to sell it - but need the garage space - the boat is 75% complete.   *1956 DIXIE CRAFT MAHOGANY 17 ft RUNABOUT manufactured by : HODGE BOAT MANUFACTURING of CHATTANOOGA, TN. *Equipped with a 1959 50TH ANNIVERSARY GOLDEN JUBILEE EVINRUDE 35HP OUTBOARD LARK MOTOR.  *ZERO Hrs on motor since the fresh overhaul! Over $2,000 overhaul on motor. Ready to go!   This boat is the only "manufactured" HULL Stamped Dixie-Craft Boat known to exist in the World to date. Dixie-Craft was started in order to compete with Chris-Craft which was also being Manufactured in Chattanooga, TN just miles away from Dixie-Craft. The wood, Craftsmanship, and detail of this boat is equal to that of the Chris-Craft runabout boats. One difference is that "Everyone" has a Chris-Craft Boat - and yes - they are awesome, however with this boat you have one of a kind! ...if you want something "Unique" that no one else has and few have ever seen - you need to check out this Dixie-Craft Boat. This boat is listed in the Antique Boat Society and is the only Dixie Craft.   This boat has a New Bottom Job, has not been in the water since new bottom. The Motor has been totally gone through with a $2,000 RE-Do - nice and Ready to go. It too has not been in the water since re-worked. The hull is about 75% stripped and Ready for Stain and Varnish.
