New Exclusive Mariposa Classic Boat Servers.
It’s that time of year for serving trays, and what better to serve from that something classic boat-sh. But these Mariposa Classic boat Servers were discontinued. BUT thanks to fellow Woody Boater Kentucky Wonder, they had a genus idea. And actually did it! Here is the note from Mr Wonder.
Hello fellow Woody Boaters. You may not know this but my wife and I own a store and are a Mariposa Dealer, and did some checking. The Classic Boat Servers were discontinued, but the molds still exist. So we had a small run custom made. According to Mariposa, we are the only store on the planet that has these in stock as brand new product. They sell for $108 (small version, and $258 (large). The large one would make a superb trophy/gift, because there is room on the transom for custom engraving. (Would have to be done by hand, though. Boat is too big to fit in most engraving machines, which are built for flatter items)
I can provide you more information if you need it. They can be purchased on our website if anyone is interested. Or ordered from our store at 800-483-4150.

The classic boat in the shots is Norwegian Son, a 1950 23′ Chris-Craft Holiday owned by Bonne and Al Olsen.
Nice Job KW!
Great to have things like that available.
Perfect place for “Shop small Saturday “
If we are even talking about Mariposa and serving dishes, our wives are winning. Now I am going to have to go out and buy an oversized torque wrench and some gas burning power tools.
Here you are m-fine.
Just send me your address and I will get it shipped.
For the woodyboater that has everything!
Done…checked off the list! Thank you and the WoodyBoater community where this information can be shared among all of us! Especially I thank The Bakers Rack for taking a chance on ordering these after they were discontinued…I love the American entrepreneurial spirit.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!
Just ordered one. Already have a large size and small size.
Can never have too many !!
Hey folks if you have not done so already click into the backstory link that Matt had provided today it’s worth reading.
The comment from Gail Turner , immediate past president of ACBS international, was particularly compelling , she explains “When you are standing on a dock and hear someone say, ‘I had a boat like that,’ they tell you their story and you take their story with you. We are just the caretakers of the stories (and the boats) right now”.
Thanks to Matt and Texx more and more of those wonderful stories have found a new home on the indelible internet .
Wow, the Power of WoodyBoater!
Thank you for all the gracious comments. As I have said before in other threads, the best part of the classic boating scene is the people you meet, and the stories they tell. (Hand raised as a second to Cobourg Kid’s comment above)
Here is a photo of a couple of boats, and a couple of boats gift wrapped (in Christmas paper) and headed to undisclosed locations around the country. The gift wrapping is always complimentary, and you can let us know what to hand-write on the greeting card attached to each package. (On our website, look for the gift wrapping options in the shopping cart area)
Thanks again for all the comments, we are truly Thankful for the friends we have made through WoodyBoater and classic boating in general.
Take time to be Thankful tomorrow for those that are important to you. Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
Last time I saw that transom, it was like a BAdddddd dream.
Waited for “Shop Small Saturday” to order mine.
We sold out of the large size, and have ordered more from Mariposa. Because they are a custom-run product, it will take several weeks, maybe a couple of months for the next batch to arrive. If you would like me to reserve one for you, please email me and let me know. Address: email@example.com
There a few of the small size left. We can get them gift-wrapped for Christmas, or any other occasion at no extra cost. Just let us know.
Thank you to everyone for the kind words!
We now have both sizes of the Classic Boat Servers back in stock. You may call us at 800-483-4150, or go to http://www.thebakersrack.com/Large-Classic-Boat-Server_p_1841.html to order.
