History of the Vessel
John Ford was a well-known classic boat restored and custom builder based in Union Springs, NY. John was best known for his award-winning restorations and contemporary builds of classic designs such as triple cockpit runabouts and early style launches. \
This 30-foot triple cockpit runabout was one of John's personal boats that combined classic design elements, modern construction techniques, and many years of experience in the trade.
"After Hours" is a stunning example with an attractive walk-through layout, plenty of storage for equipment, and big power coming from her well-tuned Chevrolet 454cid engine. Equipped with a classic Deitrich-style convertible top, "After Hours" is a gorgeous contemporary classic available at a very attractive price.
This stunning triple cockpit runabout was meticulously built by John Ford in 1999. John was best known for his traditional style triples and race boats.
The boat features a John Hacker style bottom and Chris Craft inspired decks. Cold molded mahogany construction, Chevrolet 454cid big-block powerplant. Very nicely appointed inside, full Dietrich style top with side curtains.
In addition to storage under each seat and the front deck, custom built-in cabinetry add additional secure storage for equipment and personal items. This triple cockpit is beautifully finished and is a nice example of Ford's craftsmanship. Needs nothing and is ready to enjoy this season!
