    levy boats

    Sidejob, I dont even have a valid telephone number for levy. Howevever I believe alot of builders of both novi and downeast boats work on several key thoughts such as local demand, reputation and in these difficult economic times just staying in buisness. I really do believe that our boat is over built rock solid! I will never win a race but we dont spill any beverages regardless of sea condition! Should you be so inclined shoot me a pm and maybe we could even manage a ride. Best wishes Bob:D

    Levy

    Hi, new to the forum and searched on levy as i own a Levy18 which i bought a few years ago from thr originsl owner who bought it directly from Levy. I also tried to ind them and ended up writing to a Nova Scotia boat builders association and a message back from them confirmed that levy is out of business.
    for the 18 Levy bpught the mold from Rosborough. Dont have much info beyond this, there was also a vry basic brochure of the 18 that the guy gave me at purchase.

    Hi I know this is an extremely old thread, but Levy is back in business operating from Sober Island, Nova Scotia. We've done a couple rebuilds you can see at facebook.com/soberislandboatworks

    Looking to catch up with people familiar with the builds from over the years.

    Hi, do you have your own molds? I have looked at a 28' that was originally in round Pond ME and is now on Vinalhaven. Love the size and she moved well and was interested in something like this

    Hi Fouraces59, my father is the designer of the Levy 30 and he remembers building one and cutting 2 feet off, sent to a customer in Round Pond. We still have the hull molds. Thanks for getting in touch
