    Matt,
    I would get one of these if my wife would let me smoke cigars. It would be a shame to own one and not use the custon humidor! LOL

    Can I put a purple bottom on my Lyman or maybe just the gold leaf boot stripe?

  3. WoodyGal

    Love the picture of Chad & Lily on the header!

    Good for Nieman’s! Not sure about the purple bottom and gold leaf boot stripe? Or maybe we will all do that before next years International show, hmmm?

  4. Rick

    I’m ok with the gold leaf but the purple bottom? And darn if anyone would be smoking and spilling ashes while aboard. That said does it come stocked with Cubanos with gold leaf? Looks like a sweet ride though.

    Thanks, I feel honored and special to be used as a WoodyBoater header photo.

    More special than the guy in his fancy, $250,000, limited edition, purple-bottomed humidor.

    If you have to ask how much… this is one of those lifestyles that can bleed you dry.. Or vintage airplanes, now there is a whopper.. I must say that for a brand new Hacker with all that cool stuff, it isnt that out of line.. And you have a very special.. VERY special boat that makes a new boat cool.. Gives it some .. how should I say…je ne sais quoi And yes I spelled it right!

    • Pumpkin

      That’s the name they need to put on the transom in gold leaf with a purple outline! Or, if not that, the Purple Humidor!

  7. ranger

    how cool…

    wish more folks knew about the wooden boats and how much fun the folks are…

    another fun article for the scrapbook!

  8. MikeM

    What those ladies need are a couple chunky, middle aged guys in Woodyboater caps….yeah, that’s what they need!

  9. Alex

    Uh Chad, did you remember to detach the Lily pads before you let ‘er rip for that pic?

  10. matt

    Those damm lily pads, i swear, its the dirtiest trick in the book.. Ya walk up to that train wreck of a boat and see the lily pads, and that cute little girl in her trailer and you cant help but judge it to be the best sportsman in the country.. I am telling you, its a trick!

  11. chad

    This is true.

    I forgot to bring them to the International show. People usually stop and take pictures of the boat with the lillies, but without them, they just walk on by. And those that did stop, asked “where are your lillies?”

  12. Texx

    I only wish every day could start at 6:00AM like the morning Chad & I went out on Geneva Lake in Lily. What a great way to start the day…

    Just two guys in a wooden boat, cruising across the lake as the sun came up. Then Jacob joined us in “NORM” – It was great!

  13. Kent

    We chose the purple bottom and piping because NM wanted something different than our standard 27 Sport. The gold leaf waterline, lack of teak swim platform, humidor, liquor cabinet, custom cabinetry, NM logo’s extras, higher rear deck crown, transom mounted underwater LEDs, and cover board colored quarter/trim rail make this boat a bit more unique, and that’s what NM was looking for.

    The purple bottom is dark enough it looks black in low light.

    So who would pony up $250k for a WoodyBoater Edition?

    🙂

    • chad

      Kent, take no offense to the purple comments out there. It truly is a stunning boat, no matter what the color. It’s the extra touches that make it a one-of-a-kind. I’d love to own one but I think I fall into the $2,500 boat class.

      • Kent

        None taken! Just explaining some of the marketing thoughts….and I’m with you, doesn’t fall in by personal budget, but I do get to build and test drive them – priceless!

  14. chad

    “Two guys in a wooden boat” sounds kinda weird.

    I think there were a few gals in there too…

    • Texx

      It does sound weird, but… I was expecting Matt to comment on that.

      OK – How about two friends in a wooden boat.

  15. chad

    Looks the gold leaf water line stops at the chine and does not meet the bow.

    • Brian Robinson

      I thought the same thing, Chad… But if you look at it when it is on plane it is there from the chime to the cutwater.

    • Kent

      The gold leaf waterline extends all the way to the bow and meets under the cutwater. I believe when the video was taken the boat was very light on fuel, tank is in the rear. Waterline looks right with the boat sitting at the dock, but with light fuel and someone in the front cockpit, it does look a bit low.

  16. Phil Jones

    Texx, you mean to tell me that you GOT A RIDE IN LILLY. GUESS THAT”S WHAT IT TAKES!!! 🙂

    What bonehead smokes on a wood boat loaded with petrol?

    No doubt the Coast Guard is tickled pink about this folly: Booze. Fire. Wood. Petrol. KABOOM.

    Are my rates at Hagerty going to inch up if they decide to insure these ten beauties?

    When Bugatti introduced their $300k Veyron a few years back, it took a week for some new owner to destroy their new toy. With this lethal combination of factors, I fear that it will be a season before we see a story here on WB about one heading to the bottom.

    And not to nitpick, but for $250k I would have liked to see a little fridge for my Grey Poupon.

    Beautiful craft – esp at speed though.

    • Kent

      Brian, the humidor is removable….and there is no cigar lighter on board….so hopefully the owners will pull up to their favorite island or beach and light up on shore.

      It does have a refrigerator with stainless steel door in the starboard side walk through.

  18. Dick Dow

    My ’36 Garwood has the original cigar lighter in the dash panel – and it’s a streamline utility…:)

  19. 'Bone Daddy' Deems

    Our 1960 26″ Flagship is named ‘Perfecto’ after a cigar shape…and yes (if we’re very careful) we can smoke on it. Nothing like old wood, good ‘wikee’ and a fine Cuban cigar to round out a day on the water!
