We are very happy that our very first test drive of our Gar Wood Speedster “Miss Persia” was recorded live and in color today – the WDR filmed a wonderful contribution and we would like to thank the WDR team for these recordings and the friendly disposition. Have fun and enjoy “history as it happens!”
Our little “Smitty”, a 1953 Tarz Speedster, built in the former GDR or rather in East-Berlin by the boat builder Fritz Tars, was chosen this year to take part in what is probably the world’s most famous Concours d’Elegance for classic boats! We are, admittedly, very proud, as this selection alone is an award and accolade in itself, but of course we now also need every single vote to receive this year’s People’s Choice Award 2020 – so take part and by September 7th at the latest, oh well, it’s best to vote for our SMITTY today! 🙂 Thank you very much in advance!

After more than 16 months of restoration and reconstruction, our legendary Gar Wood Speedster “Miss Persia” was once again a gem at a boat show, this time the 50th edition of Boot Düsseldorf, the world’s largest trade fair for boats and water sports. Almost 83 years after our Speedster was Gar Wood’s show boat at North America’s premier trade show of the Thirties, the Chicago Boat Show of 1936, we can once again presented the new hull and beautiful deck structure – along with some of the original chrome attachments – to the more than interested crowd. A true jewel and a shining example of a 100% faithful reconstruction and restoration. Thanks for visiting us and our trusted shipyard!
