Further Comments

CALLIOPE CAROUSEL
is a custom designed and professionally built 13ft custom motor launch. This reproduction of an early 20th Century Captain’s gig is of cold-molded mahogany construction with teak planked decks. A single cylinder BMW raw water-cooled diesel engine fitted amidships with tiller steering powers her. The deck fittings are 24k gold plated and there are custom white cushions for all seats. Storage lockers are built into the forepeak and lazarette and into the seats port and starboard. She is beautifully finished with design trim in gold. There are detachable bow and stern lights, teak bow and stern flag staffs, audio/visual engine alarms, and a VHF radio.
Originally built for and owned by Edgar Kaiser, Calliope has been tenderly used and cared for by its second owner (now deceased) and his family is hoping that a new owner will care for her in a similar way. The boat is stored of late on a trailer and there is a 3 point aluminum harness with rubber sheathed stainless steel cables that attach to 3 lifting eyes. A current survey is available and her current replacement value is $110,000.
