A colourfully panted Rye boat shed fetched $140,000 at its weekend auction.

Located on Rye Foreshore, the boat shed (pictured) was available for the first time in over 35 years.

O'Brien Real Estate agent Mathew Blakely had given a price guide of $120,000 to $130,000.

It was bought by the comedian Stephen Curry and his family, including The Dish star Bernard, who celebrated Australia Day by buying the Rye boat shed that got away from their dad 35 years ago.

There were seven bidders who sought the boat shed that last sold at $3500.

After the auction Curry revealed to the Herald Sun his family had a long connection with it, as his father missed out on purchasing it when it last sold.

His mother hopes one day her ashes will be scattered nearby.
