The picture above of Andersong was sent in by Jim Anderson, Hudson River Chapter, with this story:

“1938 34 ft Marblehead Deck House Cruiser built by Marblehead Boat Works in Biddeford, ME. (Now Rummery’s Boat Yard) Designed by Eldridge & 

McGuiness. It is the last Marblehead registered with the ACBS. After the first restoration I did back in 1991, I made the hull bright, but recently decided to return the hull to the original finish which was white and is much easier to maintain.” 



1974 Cobalt Closed Bow V-hull owned by Chuck Gibbs, Heartland Classics Chapter. Lots of Teak in this Classic Boat.


1952 Lyman Center Steer 15′ Outboard owned by Jim Seufert. She was “refinished” in 2005.  She is “preserved”, not “restored”.  All wood is original.  Winner of 2 ACBS First Class awards, plus a “Best Lyman of Show”.  Powered by an all-original 1953 Evinrude 25 HP Big Twin.

1929 Stephens Brothers 43′ Classic Yacht named Elizabeth owned by Jim and Bernadette Sweeney, home port is San Rafael, California.  The day time picture was taken by a parade judge during Opening Day on San Francisco Bay.  The night time picture was taken at the Corinthian Yacht Club by a Corinthian member.

  1. I was wondering if you could help me. I recently came into possession of a 1961 Dorsett that is in prestine condition. What is this boat worth? I looked on various sites and came up empty. My only hit came in at between$200 – $300.

    • Bill,
      ACBS does not offer valuations for boats. Hopefully, a viewer with some knowledge of Dorsett boats will see your question and help you. I suggest that you might inquire about the boat’s value at one of the boat brokers listed on this website under RESOURCES in the Classic Boat Suppliers – Dealers section. Another possibility for an answer would be a classic marine insurer such as Hagerty Marine Insurance.

  2. The value of anything is only the price a willing seller and a willing buyer agree on. Check ebay, craigslist, or any sites such as Fiberglassics. It really depends on condition, if it needs rot repair then it is anywhere from free to a couple hundred. I have seen pristine ones for several thousand, but that depends on the model, motor and trailer included, etc. hope this helps craig
