1914 Fay & Bowen Special Launch
“Moonlight Serenade” is a fully restored 1914 Fay & Bowen special launch, hull #495. She has always been on Lake George, and the current owner purchased her from Morgan Marine (now Hacker Boat Company) in 1986, and did a complete restoration and repowering (1986 Marinized Ford/Zodiac 100HP). Since then, “Moonlight Serenade” has been with her current owner, and has always been in a boathouse and professionally maintained by Hall’s Boat Corp. in Lake George Village.
“Moonlight Serenade” has won 8 ACBS Exhibitor’s Choice and People’s Choice awards at the ACBS boat shows on Lake George over the recent years. She is nothing short of a head-turner, and represents an unparalled opportunity for an antique boat enthusiast or collector to acquire a very rare, award-winning boat.
“Moonlight Serenade” is in excellent, “show” condition, and can be immediately enjoyed for regular and frequent use. The current owner has enjoyed countless hours on the water with her right through the 2011 season, and she is only needy of a new owner who will enjoy her for many seasons of future use. The current owner is putting her on the market after 26 years of ownership simply because he is paring down his collection of wooden boats.
