We are so delighted that our new Dodge Boat, as far as we know the only one registered in Europe and one of the handful survivors worldwide, finally arrived! On its customised, wooden trailer made of white North-American ash its beautifully showing of its lines from 1930. Once built in what was the largest and most modern boat plant worldwide, today it’s nearly forgotten that the heir of the Dodge Brothers empire, Horace E. Dodge Jr., tried to establish his own empire in the boating industry. Thanks to the wonderful Breuner family, who owned and restored this beautiful boat, “Miss Tessa” is one of the new highlights here at Gents Barn.
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.
