1955 Higgins Convertable, It's Sparkly Clean. Ding!
This is one very cool boat. Very cool. I have always like Higgins boats and there fantastic PT Boat History. This one is not only extremely rare, its been done by one of the best in the business. Nelson Boat Works. Now for sale at Mitch LaPointes… Here is the description and the link.1955 23’Higgins Convertible
Excellent condition. Very sparkly and clean. Fresh paint and varnish in 2007, and used very little since then. Partial bottom frame replacement and new engine box. Interesting history as a sheriff’s boat and a water ski show boat. Great seating arrangement with room for about 7-8 passengers. Nice convertible top is easy to put up and take down. Only about 40 hours on rebuilt 331 Hemi 225 h.p. engine. Tandem axle galvanized trailer takes you where you want to go. $55,000.
Great boat! We were on the Southbound St Johns cruise with her. She is everything you need for rough water, rain, more rain and sunny days of cruising. My camera seemed to like her too!
