Purdy Boat Company Commuter Yacht, 42’
Asking Price: $100,000 / Location: Florida

ZIPPER II (originally named ALTONIA) is the oldest known surviving boat built by the Purdy Boat Company and the only surviving boat built by Purdy in their early location on the shores of Biscayne Bay in Miami FL. This classic commuter style power yacht is an excellent candidate for historic restoration as was done by Brooklin Boat Yard with the larger Purdy Boat Company commuter yacht APHRODITE
