Alura II, a 1929 54ft Lawley Bridgedeck Cruiser, was built in Quincy, Massachusetts and sent to
Detroit after being commissioned by James Scripps Booth, a renowned automotive designer and
member of the famous Scripps publishing family. Alura II features a distinctive white hull and
mahogany cabin, a large teak foredeck and a spacious cockpit.
A well traveled lady, Alura II has made her home from Boston to Florida then to Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego and Oceanside. For the past twelve years she’s resided in Channel Islands Harbor. Alura II is California Historic Vessel #555 and is ready for a new owner, and a Complete Restoration.
She is being sold "as-is" "where-is". You can have it surveyed in the slip, have a diver inspect the bottom, etc, but there will be no sea-trial or haul-out. She is currently nonoperational. She truly is a beautiful vessel and would be perfect for someone who doesn’t mind the repairs & restoration that come with a traditional wooden boat.
If you’re looking for a wooden classic, please contact the listing agent to arrange a showing.
