Super rare boat at the Door County Classic and Wooden Boat Festival

One of the world’s rarest boats was on display at the 29th Annual Door County Classic and Wooden Boat Festival in Sturgeon Bay Saturday. President of Higgins Classic Boat Association Jeff Dave owns a 1949 Higgins 23ft Convertible. Dave has owned the boat for about 4 years and says it took him 18 months to restore it which included putting in a new engine that brought the boat’s horsepower from 140 to 300. Dave says the boat he has is one of less than ten in the world.

 

 

Dave’s boat has won an award at each Door County Classic and Wooden Boat Festival he’s attended.
