On Behalf of Sam

"On Behalf of Sam" is a 1927 31' Ditchburn Long Deck Launch featuring a raised- engine compartment, solid wood bucket seating, & a 5-guage grape-leaf dash along with many other signature Ditchburn castings. She was forensically restored over a 24 month period ending in 2002 and has been regularly varnished and maintained in pristine condition ever since. Powered by a "Straight-8 Chrysler", known as classic re-power, she offers turn-key reliability and the sound and appearance of a vintage engine suited to the boat. Winner of many prestigious awards over the years, most recently "Captains Choice" at the Gravenhurst Boat Show 2023. Now offered for sale at $400,000. Restoration pictures can be viewed at
