Boathouse proudly presents the Montreal Classic Boatworks Bruce 22s
Beautiful launches built in the style of a traditional mahogany Antique and Classic Boat
Classic? Absolutely     Antique? Anything but!!
The Bruce 22s are classic reproductions - authentic recreations of the vintage Antique and Classic Boats of the 1930's and 1940's – but with a twist. The contemporary hulls are built in the latest composite technology while the decks and interiors retain the beauty and craftsmanship of the traditional mahogany classic boats.


The Classic Utility


The Classic Utility is a traditional 22 ft. boat with an open-cockpit design and ample room for up to 7. The spacious, practical, all-around family boat is also a serious waterski boat with a delightfully flat wake. Top speed 40 mph. It is a real Classic but definitely not an Antique! The Bruce 22 hull is state of the art fibreglass construction but the decks and interior are all sapele mahogany.  $90,000.00*

Hull and Structure

         The hull form is typical of this genre of boat that was suited to rivers and inland
         small lakes. These boats, sometimes referred to as "river slivers", plane very
         easily but the 
hull form is not well suited to large, rough open water. That needs
a deeper V.

         The hull is a solid, resin transfer laminate using vinyl ester resins for strength and

         resistance to osmosis. Reinforcement in the hull is provided by a complete grid
         structure in 100% fiberglass without any wood. The deck is also a fiberglass
         structure with recesses into which the wooden panels are vacuum bagged.

The Electric Classic Launch 


The Classic Electric Launch is a stylish centre-cockpit hatchback runabout that is All-electric! It seats four or five comfortably with the electric motor and battery under the rear decked-over hatch. Like the Utility (same hull), it too is a great waterski boat and it can actually out-perform the gas boat. It comes equipped with a ski pylon and is an unbelievable boat for those lakes that have forbidden gas powered boats! $139,500.00*
