 "Widgeon" was just hauled and had her complete out of water service performed including bottom paint, hull paint, boot stripe and prop speed on running gear and rudder! She was launched on 6/23 and brought back to her home dock on the South river.

"Widgeon" also had a value and condition survey performed while she was out of the water, which is now available for your inspection. Email us and we will send you the report asap.

"Widgeon" is considered to be one of the last fully restored original Dawn Cruisers left afloat.  She was the 301st. hull produced by Dawn Boat Corp. Classon Point, N.Y. and was primarily built as a pleasure express cruiser/commuter yacht. 

Widgeon has cruised all over the east coast, from the Great Lakes to the Florida coast. She has been a welcomed sight on the Chesapeake Bay for the past sixty plus years. Widgeon is truly a work of beauty and always is the center of attention in every port visited. One of the best features about Widgeon ( which is extremely hard to find today in a yacht of her vintage and age ) is the fact that she is almost entirely original. Her arrangements remain intact from her stained leaded glass liquor cabinet doors to her 4 foot solid brass engine gear shift levers.

All of her modern equipment has been installed keeping in mind her vintage style, out of sight and without destroying her classic design. Even the installation of her diesel engines and instruments were done without sacrificing her classic look. The new instrument control panels, with all the "bells and whistles", were synchronized with the original instruments and discreetly placed on the back of a locker door. This allowed for easy viewing when needed and out of sight when the yacht was in competition. 

In addition, all three self contained A/C systems were located and placed in such positions as to make them almost invisible. This holds true with other equipment such as refrigerator, microwave, VHF, Inverter, electrical panel etc. 

This web site is only a fraction of the information about WIDGEON. Buyers are invited to make an appointment and to visit the yacht currently located on the South River, Edgewater, MD by calling Listing agent John Kaiser or contact your brokerage agent today! 

New listing as of 6/12/2021, more images and structural survey has been completed the week of 6/21/2021. Call us if interested in seeing her survey!
