Selkie - 1960

Grandy 28' (Pacific Northwest Fleet)

From Bell Harbor Classic Weekend flyer 2012:

Selkie was built by Grandy Boat Company on Lake Union in Seattle in 1960.  She has just completed a two year restoration, including a total rebuild of her engine, a Chrysler 318, and a new canvas enclosure for the cockpit.  She was refastened in 2009, and all her brightwork was stripped and re-varnished.  Selkie cruises on plane at 16 knots, and has a top speed of 23 knots.  For best fuel economy, she normally cruises around 8 knots.


My Fair Lady II - 1961

Hugh Libbey 37' (Canadian Fleet)

My Fair Lady II was designed by Ed Monk Sr. and construction began in a West Vancouver shed in the backyard of Hugh and Rose Libby.  This was only their second attempt at boatbuilding, having built a 19' runabout prior to this project.

Construction began in 1959 and was finished in 1961, when she was registered. She is still powered by her original GM 6-53 diesel.

The Libby's took her north to Ketchikan, Alaska in 1964, and the current owner retraced his course in 2010. She has been no stranger to the North & Central BC coast ever since.

Flamingo - 1962

Gracie - 1962

Gracie
Grandy 28' (Pacific Northwest Fleet)

Gracie is a 28’ Sedan Cruiser built in 1962 by Grandy Yachts of Seattle, Washington. The following is the limited information we have of her history.

She was originally purchased by Bob Carstensen. Apparently, Bob knew the Grandy family personally and would often stop in and have coffee at their boatyard. After having the boat built he named her “Long Gone II” and must have had a lot of pride in owning her because of the excellent condition we found her in.
