This Hacker & Co replica built by Peter Lambert in 1983 has been lovingly appreciated and now is available for sale.
“Crafts supreme in their boating completeness” were John Hacker’s words for his runabouts, an apt description since the 1930’s. Hacker-Craft Runabouts, ranging in size from 24 to 35 feet, with twin and triple cockpit configurations, provide a beautifully balanced ensemble of hull and power. Our driving angle for the propeller shaft produces a level planning position at all speeds. The level ride is the secret to the Hacker-Craft’s legendary riding comfort and is the last word in luxurious water travel.
“Touchwood” is a replica of the popular 24' Family Edition with Double Cockpit and of craftsman like construction of Brazilian Mahogany on Silver Ash and traditionally powered by a fully restored Cadillac 545 'Big Block' V8 achieving genuine speed max 40Kts and champagne cruise 25Kts.
Purchased from original builder, “Touchwood” has been rarely used apart from occasional film and TV appearances. Lovingly kept in excellent condition, it is now time for “Touchwood” to be passed onto her next owner.
