Wayzata Boat Building Co.

Wayzata Boat Building Co. Is Made Up of Boating Men

From the February, 1922 issue of  “Open Exhaust Boating”

A new firm, consisting solely of boating men and some of the best journeymen boatbuilders the country can boast, was recently incorporated under the statute laws of the state of Minnesota.
The Wayzata Boat Building Company, as the new firm is known, is located at Wayzata, Minnesota, on beautiful big Lake Minnetonka, famous in the old days for the racing held there. Situated 18 miles from Minneapolis, with convenient track facilities on the Great Northern Ry., and but an hour’s ride from a great lumber and financial center, the new company has erected a building up to date in every necessary detail and has commenced the building of high speed custom built runabouts, which later will be standardized. The company will do nothing but build and sell their products, which are from designs by E. Weston Farmer, who is retained as designer.
The officers of the company are: James Verril, President; John Redeen, Secretary and Treasurer, As said before, every man connected with the firm is an artisan in his line, and we look for something new in the way of boat values.

E. Weston Farmer Makes Generous Offer to OPEN EXHAUST BOATING Subscribers

During the next 45 days any subscriber of OPEN EXHAUST BOATING can obtain from E. Weston Farmer, of Minneapolis, any design he wishes — designed especially to suit his wishes — on a basis of cost-plus. This means that for almost actual cost he may obtain custom designed plans from a designer who has handled nothing but the highest class of work, who has been above the field of competition, and who has laid down the lines of some of the most successful boats of today. It means that where he used to pay the standard 5 percent commission he may obtain complete plans for almost nothing. The cost of getting our complete prints for a 20 footer will be around $10.
