History of the Vessel
Many are familiar with the story of Gar Wood and some of the finest production boats in existence. Howard Lyon was one of Gar Wood's smooth talking salesman, who branched out to build and market his own line of luxury triple cockpit runabouts.
While only in production for a handful of years, these were some of the most striking and well fitted boats of their time. This 24 foot model has been beautifully restored and is in excellent overall condition.
All of the hardware is blind-fastened from the inside; attention to detail that is unmatched. This is a wonderful example of a true, limited production boat.
Many collectors know the story of Gar Wood giving exclusive rights to Charles Lyon to sell Gar Wood boats, only to have Lyon produce knock-offs for his own business.
This is a beautiful triple cockpit Sea Lyon, fresh out of complete restoration. Show quality varnish, upholstery, engine rebuild and chrome. This boat was advertised in the brochure to attain 35 mph with the 110 hp Chrysler. This is a true "collector's boat" as there are a limited amount of Sea Lyons available.
Also noteworthy is the bronze hardware and the fact that this boat was screwed from the inside giving it a magnificent look. All Sea Lyon's are triple cockpit models because the company was after the "luxury portion" of the market. Truly a wonderful example of a limited edition boat.
