Bell Boy was the first fiberglass boat built in the USA...built by Bellingham Boat Co. When they lost their factory space in Bellingham in the mid- 1960s, Bell Boy was bought by Sabre Craft.

HE also used in the Columbia River and out to Buoy 10 in the Pacific Ocean. He said it was the fastest boat coming back in over the bar. The great hull design is responsible for the terrific performance, handling and comfortable ride.I have made 4 runs in the Bell Boy in Lake Washington. It is a beautifully performing boat...fast & comfortable. It easily does power turns at 45 knots with no sliding during turns. I have had it up to 55 on straight runs. The 200 HP Evinrude E-Tec performs flawlessly. It is powerful and lightweight for it's output. I have a 90 HP Evinrude E-Tec on my Wooldridge Alaskan and have had absolutely no issues with it in over 8 years of use. These Evinrude E-Tecs are great motors.This 1970 Bell Boy is a classic boat with a new 200 E-tec, $29950
