Right at the beginning of this year, we got some great news – Boot Düsseldorf is giving our legendary and unique Miss Persia, the only Gar Wood Speedster produced in 1936 and the former boat of the Shah of Iran, a special place at its anniversary fair, the 50th edition of this world leading trade fair for boats and water sports!
Almost exactly 83 years after its first exhibition at the 1936 Chicago Boat Show, Miss Persia is now – although not yet completely assembled, but with dozens of layers of fresh varnish – for the second time at one of the world’s largest boat fairs, what an honor.
So if you’ve ever wanted to see the resurrection of the Miss Persia up close, you can do so now – in the “classic boat” hall 5, booth B02, both our Miss Persia and our future replacement engine, the Packard 1M-245, will be featured throughout the fair. Of course, we are very happy about this great sign from the fair organizers and thank them in advance.
If you would like to get to know the proud owner and Gents Barn founder in person, you can meet him on the first day of the fair, January 19th.
See you soon – at Boot Düsseldorf, open from 19.-27. January 2019.
The appreciation for quality, stylish design and authentic manufacturing are an attitude towards life. Just like the joy that comes from owning classic cars, acknowledging traditional craftsmanship, or collecting memorabilia from the past.
