Houde and Bergeron Ltd. had a shipyard on the south shore of the St. Lawrence in Saint Antoine-de-Tilly, Quebec near Quebec City. Before building pleasure craft, they built commercial fishing and transport vessels. Around 1945, they began building both power and sail pleasure craft. The first Whistler class sailboat which was a Rhodes design was what brought them into notability.

In keeping with Houde and Bergeron's heritage, they did build some trawler-type motoryachts one of which is this charming vessel. Her owners have repowered her with twin Ford Lehman diesels and have extensively rebuilt and refitted her.

She is definitely one of a kind and she is looking for a new set of owners to continue loving her and have many more adventures with her.



Thank you for all your work in facilitating the sale of our dad's boat. Jake and I really appreciate all the hard work you put into it with the many visits, paperwork, etc. A special mention has to go out to Grant for teaching me how to fold the sails!

As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
