 'Just Relaxing'

We are honored to be able to bring you this beautiful 1958 Shepherd 30ft Commuter! As you can tell from the video, below, this boat has been cherished and well loved by its current owner. They are the only the 2nd owner and have had this Shepherd boat for over 50 years! It has been repowered with twin 4.3l Crusader engines. The seating has been updated and the entire boat underwent a restoration in 2012. Just like the video says, Shepherd Boats are great boats for big lakes. The hull cuts through the waves and the tall gunwale are fantastic at keeping everyone dry. While the video says that this is the only remaining 30ft Shepherd Commuter, that is not accurate, though was believed to be at the time the video was made. Through our research we can say that there are at least 5 of these boats remaining.
