Shepherd Boats were built in Niagra-on-the Lake in Ontario Canada and often compared to the Italian designed and built yachts of the era like Riva, popularized in Hollywood films in the 60's. Founded in 1928, as Shepherd Boat Works, they built Runabouts and yachts designed and constructed to meet the highest quality standards. They were one of the first pioneers of the "V"drive. We are very pleased to be rebuilding this Shepherd 50 using modern cold molded construction processes while maintaining the original classic lines. We are only aware of 1 other Shepherd 50 in existence and honoured to be restoring this classic.
