It has special fender cleats. I know that much
To be clear today, we are not looking for German Shepherds, or people that work sheep farmers. Sorry Phil.. Not a new Zealand story today. We are talking about a Shepherd Boat, Cruiser. Fellow Woody Boater Alan Serpa, is about to drop the hammer on this wonderful boat and was asking about if anyone knows anything about them.
LOVE the mid Century vibe man
I didn’t even know Shepherd made a cruiser. but me not knowing something should be of know surprise. The good news, is I know I know someone I don’t know that might know something. I know, lots of I knows. Sorry, word loop.. I am kinda dizzy right now.. This might be a good time to show some pics Serpa sent. Oh, wait.. Will this be a Serpa Shepherd?
Who ever restored, preserved this boat had amazing attention to artistic detail.
It all looks too clean to be a time capsule? The choice of glass wear, is perfect, and that has to be a newer choice. Look at the tea kettle. Perfect
Wonderful mid century lines.
Take a seat
33 ft Express Cruiser
This is from a 1961 Brochure On Shepherd Cruisers. LOVE LOVE LOVE the wood detail and blue top. Seeps like the one Serpa is looking at is a slightly different year? Note the round porthole and below the deck wood? That’s somewhat cosmetic, the boat looks the exact same otherwise – Image ShepherdBoats.com
Here is a 1962 from a Brochure. No wood, but a wonderful powder blue accent. That color line really adds some pizazzzz The Brochure images are form a great website ShepherdBoats.com
Is Serpa looking for a Sherpa Shepherd in the know? And I am done!
