Sweet Jane is a 1957 Hiliner Super Sport with twin outboards, owned by Brian Carey. This classic boat was purchased new in upstate NY in 1957. She was only used for 4 seasons before being stored away in a barn for over 50 years. She still sat n the original Tee Nee trailer that she was delivered on when she was discovered. Sweet Jane is the larges boat that Hiliner made in 1957.  Very few of this model were made as the most of thier production boats were the smaller models that had singer outboard engines. This boat is #10 built and the only one known to still exists. It was one of the first made with a factory glassed bottom over a double planked mahogany hull which become standard in later versions. She is equipped with the original factory 1957 twin Johnson 35hp electric start motors which were the largest outboard motors Johnson made in 1957. This Hiliner came with all the factory options which included horn, spot lights, upholstered seats, side curtain canopy which folds into dash pad, and factory mooring cover. Sweet Jane has been preserved to its original beauty using all the  original parts except for the canopy and seats, which followed the original patterns. All of the wood is original and is preserved to show the original weathering, usage and character of a boat it’s age. A true classic that displays American styling and ingenuity of the 1950’s. Having Sweet Jane at our 35th Annual Southern New England Chapter show was very welcome.
