      1927 DAWN 38' RAISED-DECK CRUISER -- PARADER
"It is time for us to find her a new home.  This beautiful 1927 Dawn cruiser is looking for a new owner and a path back to the water.
Few remain and this is the only Dawn 38 in original condition known to exist.  At 38 feet she is a great size for cruising."

1932 ELCO 33' CRUISER -- BEST OFFER
