1958 Thompson 18 ft Classic Wooden Runabout, 2019 Mercury FourStroke 60 hp Outboard Engine, and 2019 EZ Loader Bunk Trailer -- Excellent Condition! - $19,800

Fabulous 1958 Thompson Runabout for sale! This 18 ft beloved Thompson Brothers boat captures the romance and nostalgia of a classic wooden boat while providing comfort, stability, and reliability. Whether heading out for a cocktail cruise, a day of swimming, or fishing, this versatile beauty does it all – and with head-turning style!

Powered by a 2019 Mercury FourStroke 60 hp Command Thrust Outboard Engine with only ~90 hours, there's no need to worry about engine troubles.

Also included, a 2019 EZ Loader Galvanized Bunk Trailer – custom fit to the Thompson and with limited use, ~1200 miles.

Well maintained and loved – over $30,000 invested in upgrades, restoration, paint and varnish work since 2018. Including new control box and harness, and new Mercury SmartCraft 1000 Tachometer/Speedometer, in addition to the new engine and trailer.

Covered moorage has protected the beautiful wooden lapstrake design – a fully ribbed hull using the finest white oak, mahogany and marine-grade fir & mahogany plywoods. The trademarked Thompson Brothers “Sea-Lap” construction (each lap of planking brass-bolted full length from stem to stern) keeps this boat tight and dry. Thompson’s distinctive hulls are prized for their strength and rigidity, quick planing, dry ride and traditional appeal.

The Thompson’s wide beam offers plenty of room – with a bench seat across the helm and another at the stern. The open back cockpit with covered floor allows ample space for additional chairs, gear and coolers. Even more storage is located in the enclosed bow locker. High gunwales safeguard youngsters.

This is a turnkey boat ready for its next owner. Great memories are priceless – this Thompson is a memory maker!

THOMPSON BROTHERS BOATS:
Founded by brothers Peter and Christ Thompson in 1904, the Thompson Brothers Boat Manufacturing Company of Peshtigo, Wisconsin, manufactured pleasure boats and canoes. The company became prominent in the field and built boats for nearly one hundred years. Their signature boat was the lapstrake lake runabout of the 1950s and 60's. ... graceful bow lines, combined with ruggedness and safety, made it a favorite for a variety of water sports, fishing, or just cruising the shore. The Thompson Antique & Classic Boat Rally celebrates the company's history with a boat show every other year.
