    matt & Anon-

    That is indeed a Greavette Stereamliner, built between the mid-'30's until the early '50's in limited numbers. I would say it is likely a 24' version. Someone with better knowledge than I can fill in more, such as narrowing down the year of this one, but they are all stunning.

    I had the pleaser of riding in a 24' 1937 Greavette Custom triple cockpit, which in my view is a slightly crisper design but retains many of the Streamliner's main design cues. I rode in it for the two days and was just blown away, not only the looks of the boat, but the ride and perfomance. If you are patient, about $150k will get a very nice 24' Sreamliner, more for concours. The Custom I rode in is in the value stratosphere (even beyond the regular Streamliners), like many of the boats we saw. Wish I could provide more specifics for you.

    I have to say that the international show was a fabulous show this year. It is so nice to see my old Cobra doing well in Muskoka.
