This completely remodeled beauty by Olsen Marine is available for sale to a loving owner. Mackenzie Cuttyhunk bass boat is a name synonymous with rugged construction and sea kindly characteristics. A true classic! Olsen Marine has endeavored to give a rebirth to this vintage classic using only the finest of materials and modern construction techniques, coupled with the best traditional boatbuilding skills on the Cape.
We are proud to present the water vessel “TRUANT” as a legacy to the MacKenzie fleet. Ed Koskella (former founding member of the Mackenzie Bass Boat Club) brought this early 1958 Mackenzie bass boat to our attention a decade ago with hopes that eager minds and hands would restore her. Evidence of her neglect was obvious and hopes of her resurrection were dim. A between boat projects plan to build her anew was hatched by Olsen Marine. Upon her recently replaced keel, new oak frames, copper riveted mahogany planking, and a modern diesel power plant appeared over the course of a few years. Her original bronze hardware restored, fore-n-aft operator’s stations installed, bright finish mahogany windshield and trim work fashioned to the era, and all capped off with a stunning color scheme. She was launched, tested and proved herself tenfold.
