VARLET, a pedigreed launch that’s been with the same family since her 1930 launching, is available to a new owner with the means, knowledge, and appreciation to keep her going. Although VARLET has been upgraded with a new engine in 2004 and the systems that go with it (including a fuel tank), and has had a bit of structural work done, we expect more will be needed to put this 83-year-old craft in show condition, if that's to be a goal of the new owner.

Unike so many boats this age, however, VARLET has escaped major modifications; her double-planked mahogany hull even retains its original varnished finish.

VARLET is indeed a classic and despite her not particularly being in jeopardy (she’s boathouse-stored and annually maintained)...we hope that this helps secure a worthy buyer.

For more information or to make arrangements to inspect VARLET, contact one of the original owner’s grandchildren, either Beatrice Manz (Beatrice.manz AT tufts.edu) or Anthony Forbes (anthonyforbes AT mac.com).
