60' Pacemaker 60' Flushdeck Motoryacht


Impeccably maintained traditional motoryacht.

Made during the height of Egg Harbor New Jersey boat building. There were five major manufacturers situated in a small harbour producing some of Americas finest yachts. Designed by C.P. Leek & Sons who were one of the most respected builder of their times. When built, this boat was state of the art, well engineered, using sound and solid techniques, and the finest timbers and wood available. All this is still very apparent as soon as you step aboard. A Flushdeck Motoryacht gives you a very practical layout with plenty of room for family and friends.  Do not dismiss a wooden yacht, there is plenty of enjoyment still in this beautiful classic yacht, one to be admired for years to come.
