David Elkins of Stow, Mass. said the boat and trailer are worth about $50,000. He has stored it for about four years at the Lakeport Landing Marina on Gold Street, but takes it out on weekends on Lake Winnipesaukee.
Police said the boat was discovered missing last Saturday but investigators, after reviewing surveillance footage, believe it was stolen Thursday, Aug. 7, just before 11 p.m.
At that time, surveillance video recorded a white, newer model Toyota Tundra pickup with no front plate, and two men inside, towing the boat out of the Gold Street marina. Elkins said the video recording was taken from cameras from a nearby restaurant.
A tonneau cover was fitted over the bed of the truck.
Police said the boat, which is black with a white hull, is a 2007 Donzi with a 425-horsepower engine. The boat had a black canvas tarp covering it at the time it was taken.
The bow number is NH2522BP and it was on a galvanized steel Venture trailer that had no registration plate.
Elkins said he bought the speed boat about four years ago in Maryland. He has a vacation home in Waterville and comes to New Hampshire for skiing in the winter and boating on Lake Winnipesaukee in the summer. He is a member of the Winnipesaukee Donzi club, he said.
He said not many 2007 Donzi boats were made and he is concerned whoever stole it will strip it for parts and cut up the rest. The $5,000 reward, he said, is for information leading to its recovery and it being in one piece.
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call Laconia police at 524-5252.
