A Ride in the CLARIE II a 100 Year Old Vintage Racing Boat

If you spend time on the Muskoka lakes you will witness the glory of vintage boats slicing through the water. They are beautiful, iconic, masterful works of art. Cherished and sought after builders such as Ditchburn, Greavette, Duke and Minett-Shields operated right here in Muskoka.

It was a thrill to experience a recent ride in the Clarie II a 100 year old masterpiece. The 35ft Hutchinson racing boat was built in 1920 for the Rogers family of St Mary’s Cement to compete in the Great Lakes Gold Cup. It features a 500HP Liberty aircraft engine. Hats off to Murray and Emila for providing us with this great experience.

  1. I like the canoe, myself! Those old boats are so pretty. Everyone goes too fast for me, though.

    There is a very special Greaveyte/dichbuen speedboat right at the top of Lake Joe, (two matching green boathouses) that you have to try to capture!
