Broker's Comments


This Lyman Picnic Boat is an exceptionally unique classic boat that has been updated with twin Yanmar turbo diesel engines and other upgrades. It has been boathouse-kept and under canvas and it appears in excellent condition. Truly a head-turner and a manageable, wonderful boat for a classic boat aficionado or a newbie, alike. This is a turn-key vessel. Join up with an active force of Lyman collectors in the Puget Sound area.
