Get out your check books, it’s deal time in Clayton NY.. That’s right. August 6th.. You can drive up with a boat and return with another. Antique Boat America is now taking consignments for the big ..2011 Annual Antique Boat Show And Auction… With over 60 boats planned to be there and over 200 bidders this will be the usal highlite of the Clayton Show. Your boat won’t be alone, several have already jumped in. Including one very cool 1978 Glastron boat like the one in the James Bond Film. Here she is with a description.
In the movie “Moonraker”, James Bond is chased while driving a Glastron/ Carlson CV23HT boat through the Amazon River. Only 300 of these boats were ever built, and ONLY 3 of those were built with the custom painted silver metalflake gelcoat over gray. Today ONLY 1 of these 5 boats is known to exist and is currently owned by the Ian Fleming Foundation. “Moonraker II” has undergone a comprehensive, better than factory restoration with all new or remanufactured items. This includes a 5.7 Vortec engine with only 4 hours on the engine for sea trials. It also has new risers and exhaust, new gauges, new correct custom paint, new custom interior, new stringers and flooring and a new waterproof engine hatch preventing any water intrusion. The package also includes a refurbished original Glastron dual axle trailer with new paint, new tires, bearings, bunks and lights. Great opportunity to own an iconic piece of 1970's history.
