A fully-restored classic wood pocket cruiser, designed by Bill Garden and built by Gordon Lacey as a salmon fishing launch in Brentwood Bay, Boat House No. 5 is stunning example of this cat boat design. After an $85,000 restoration from stem to stern, including engine and electrical, this vessel truly defines the term "Bristol Condition". Her gleaming paint and flawless varnish set Boat House No. 5 apart as a "one of a kind" picnic / day boat, while boasting a full sleeping cabin and proper marine head in her cozy fore cabin.
