In Festival Boats 2021

Rhinegold is a rare example of an almost unaltered and intact powerboat built at a time when “gas-powered launches” were a rarity. She was a social hit for her owner, Maxwell Theolopolis Davies III, son of a wealthy English family who sent him to the logging outpost of Vancouver with his own cook and valet! Originally powered by a 25HP Buffalo engine, Rhinegold now sports her fourth power plant, a modern, reliable, 50HP Isuzu diesel, in her thirty-five-foot and six-inch-long, eight-foot and six-inch-wide Fir on Oak hull. Her lovely canoe stern leaves barely a ripple on the water as she slides along at a graceful eight knots.
