1956 18' Jafco

Vintage Bros Boat Sales is happy to present this very interesting and unusual find! It has some interesting features that are uncommon to lapstrake boats built in this era!

The value in this boat is that it's rare. An enthusiast could theoretically go to boat shows for years and not see another one, and certainly not one in this condition.

At Vintage Bros, we are antique and classic boat enthusiasts first and boat brokers second. We love what we do and enjoy connecting buyers and sellers together. We would love to own any of the boats we sell.


The hull on this boat is a combination lapstrake (hullsides) and carvel planked (bottom). It has a lot of freeboard for an 18' boat and looks like it would be a natural in moderate chop. The sides are painted white with a traditional dark blue sheer, and it's just beautiful! The decks and interior are finished bright and are warm to the eye.


The interior is spartan but classic, with lots of wood and a meager bit of upholstery. Very classy.


This vessel is powered by a completely rebuilt Gray Marine flathead 6. These are good running motors that produce a lot of tork to push things along. Of course, the burble of the exhaust is intoxicating! A trailer is available.


This is a wonderful boat. It's a lesser know brand that is well built and beautiful.  Please call Jim at 513 678 9379.

  • Vintage Bros Boat Sales always recommends that any prospective purchaser either inspect the boat themselves or hire a third-party inspector to examine the boat as a contingency of purchase. Once these things are completed to the buyer's satisfaction the sale becomes final. It is the buyers right  to waive all inspections. If a buyer choose to go this route they bare full responsibility for the choice made regarding the condition of the boat.

  • Vintage Bros. Boat Sales  is happy to help in any prospective purchaser coordinate shipping. However, shipping is ultimately the responsibility of the purchaser not only in coordination but in payment of the service.
