1949 Lyman Islander PROJECT

Vintage Bros Boat Sales is pleased to offer this wonderful 1949 18' Lyman Islander for sale. This boat is a 'must have' for the serious collector and represents a great value to a person with some wood working skills.

One of just 199 built in 1949 she's an uncommon piece. With its side-steer set-up Islanders were the 'it' boat for fishing and the great outdoors in the post-war era.

At Vintage Bros we are enthusiasts first and boat brokers second. We love what we do and enjoy matching buyers and sellers who have a passion for antique and classic boats.


Being this boat is a project no doubt she's a ways off from splashing in and going for a ride. However, a lot of the tricky work is done as it has many new ribs.


Nothing to see here.....literally. Folks its a project: the interior needs everything from wood work to varnish to cushions.


It comes with an original style Gray Marine 4 cylinder engine and transmission. Likely it will need rebuilt. The trailer rolls but should be inspected to determine road-worthyness.


This is a great project for the Lyman enthusiasts who has ambition and decent wood working skills. Call Jim at 513 678 9379.
