History of the Vessel

Andrew Jackson Higgins is best known for his Military Landing Craft that were highly recognized for their success in WWII.

The company's craft were expertely designed to land higher up on beaches and retreat at a higher rate of speed than any other vessel at the time. After the war, the company began to produce recreational boats, which were a variety of sporty runabouts, utilities, and cruisers.

The Andrew J is the last known surviving example of the Deluxe Sedan Cruiser model. She was built in 1948 and features a fully enclosed wheelhouse, bunks that can also be dropped for additional seating, and a large open aft deck for entertaining.

She has been restored to Concours quality and is a multiple award winner. Over $100K invested into the restoration. Complete with a custom trailer suitable to haul it anywhere. A fine example worthy of adding to your permanent collection!
