1956 EMANCIPATOR 27' Cruiser "GOOD TIMES"
Palm Beach, Florida United States
RECENT PRICE REDUCTION!
You have never seen a boat like this before! There were only about 50 or so built in St. Simons, GA in the late 1940's through the 1950's. The workmanship and performance is far superior to similar vintage vessels in her class. This boat has a 11.5 foot beam with a very roomy walk around open cockpit. Up to 6 or 8 adults are very comfortable aboard. Powered with twin 350 C.I. fuel injected Gas Sea Max engines with 400 total hours and plenty of performance.
This vessel is the last Emancipator known to exist in the world, making this purchase a one of a kind opportunity. This better-than-new vessel is a head turner with a great ride and speeds in excess of 40 mph. 30 plus knot cruise. Recent updates include repower, topside varnish current, new cushions. Boat is in fantastic condition!

In 2008 the owner started a complete restoration with Blackwell Custom Boatworks in North Carolina. This restoration replaced most of the ribs and over 80% of the frame and bottom were replaced.
The painstaking restoration was completed in 2011 to this finely-finished, one-of-a-kind wood showboat. Blackwell Boatworks and YouTube have the complete restoration history documented on video from the delivery to the sea trial.
