Struan II


YEAR: 1921

Originally built & named for Struan Point on Lake Muskoka, where she spent the first half of her life, this gentleman's 

racer was then sold to Lake of Bays in the 1950's. It was here she was found on timbers in an old boathouse in the early 90's by Peter Breen. Richard Grand commissioned her complete over-haul from 1994-1995. 


LENGTH: 24.5'

Though complete and actually still running on her original bottom, she was well in need of a complete restoration. Modifications over the years included the removal of the original wooden windshield, which was re-installed during restoration. This is one of the rarest and finest examples of a Ditchburn gentleman's racer in existence.



Once forensically 

re-constructed, 'Struan II' was shown at Gravenhurst - Muskoka, Clayton - New York, and Lake Tahoe - California where she won multiple awards at each showing. Richard sold the boat to brother John Grand, and she continues to reside on Elsinore Island, Lake Joseph.
