Used Calkins Bartender Antique and Classic Boat For Sale 45 pictures

Boat Description

Designed by George Calkins for use at the river mouths of Oregon State. Known for their treacherous crossings. The Bartender soon became famous for her ability to nimbly and safely bring her crews home every time. Soon the United States Coast Guard, the Australian Harbor Patrol and surf rescue teams were all using this boat. Fast and stable she has turned out to be a very unique and comfortable cruising design.

Comfortable cabin sleeps two, Porta-Potti seats one. Hardtop over cockpit is quite handsome and functional.Cabin heat. Sensible galley with one burner propane stove and built in ice box.

Radar, VHF, compass. Stern anchor system means no going foreward to anchor....and on a double ender that just makes sense doesnt it?
