This Item Is Currently Out Of Stock!
The Zipper, built 1934, consider a fast hydroplane of category 225. John Hacker
designed this wonderful boat for the 125 racing class. Zipper had a 47-horse
motor and overall weight of 750 pounds. She illustrates the sobriety and the
elegance of the runabouts of competition of the 20s & 30s. Her hull was
made to increase speed and to increase stability in tight turn.
Since category 225 racing competition allowed only one person on board, the
architect placed the cockpits one behind the other and the second one can be
easily closed for the competitions.
