1954 Penn Yan Captivator

 This is our 1954 Penn Yan Captivator that we bought off my uncle in the fall of 2019.   

It was in really good structural shape so minimal work had to be done.  I had to fix a spot on the transom but nothing too major.  This boat has been in our family for 50+ years and we really enjoy taking it out and reliving glory days.  All of us kids learned to ski behind this boat and will still pull a slalom skier out! 

Originally it was powered by a 35HP Mercury but in 1972 it was repowered by a 50HP electric start.  This was a cosmetic restoration only.  Stripped to bare mahogany and refinished.  This was a deluxe model back in the day.  Very fortunate to now own this family heirloom and use it regularly.
