Dolly Durkin is a scaled-down replica of Lady Eaton's famous limousine of the same name. When the original left his factory in 1922, Herb Ditchburn claimed it was "the best work to emerge from his plant to date". Dolly Durkin was built to these same standards of excellence.
Based of a John Hacker designed Gold-up raceboat hull that was extremely successful in the 1920's, this boat provides not only sleek and flowing lines, but a ride that would rival any modern off-shore boat. Powered with a high output 496 cu.in. Mercruiser, Dolly performs beautifully at all speeds.
Built to showcase the companies work, Dolly spent the first year touring North American boat shows from Houston, Texas, to Tavares Florida, to Whitefish, Minnesota. She then spent years serving as a sales tool at Peter's Severn River cottage. Recently Corey Hawtin acquired the boat, and puts her to regular use from her new home on Lake Joseph.
