Howard Lyon was a smooth talking salesman who convinced Gar Wood to grant him the exclusive arrangement to sell his Runabouts after Gar watched him successfully sell his 33 Foot Baby Gar's in record numbers. Eventually going on to build his own boats, Lyon purchased land in New York City and built 6 different models of runabouts including the 30 Foot Sea Lyon with a 200 HP Sterling Petrel engine which would sell for $ 5950.00. Known for their level riding and excellent visibility, 5 section windshield, the long deck boats were made to be at the high end of the market. The stock market crash ended this dream and left behind a handful of these exquisite boats. The boat is in showroom condition today and ready to contend at the country's top boat shows!
