    1929 Chris Craft Custom Commuter 38

    $375,000.00

    1929 Chris Craft custom Commuter 38. The custom Commuter was Chris Craft’s first cruiser type boat. The commuter name comes from the use of this type of boat to “commute” from Long Island sound to Manhattan. At the time, the only boats available were custom built boats, and Chris Craft saw an opportunity to build a production boat for fill the demand. 65 examples were built from hull no. 5001 to no. 5065, most of them in 1929, before the depression killed demand. Dat-So-La-Lee is number 15 in the series.

    This boat was fully restored in 1991 and has received additional work in later years. Most notably, the bottom was fully replaced with the 5200 style bottom and the engine was changed out to a modern Mercruiser 496. The boat comes with a fully re-built Chris Craft A-120, which was the original engine used after restoration, but is not the original engine to the boat. The original engines in 1929 were the A-70 engine of a similar design.

    The boat is very original and still has the correct head with a pull down pullman style sink. The main modification was the conversion of double bunks to a table and benches. Otherwise, every attempt was made to retain originality throughout, using original factory drawings as our guide.

    1947 Chris Craft 20 Custom Runabout

    $89,000.00

    1947 Chris Craft 20 Custom Runabout. Fully restored in 2001, it features fully glued construction and modern power. The 20 Custom Runabout is one of the best post war boats that Chris Craft built. They were very high quality and were a continuation of the pre-war 19 Custom,AKA 19 Barrel Back. They have become one of the most collectable boats on the market. Besides modern power, a number of details keep this boat from being a show boat, like vinyl upholstery instead of leather, but for a very nice boat to use, it is perfect. The glued construction makes the wood very stable and eliminates plank movement. The 310 hp Mercruiser engine give it great performance over the stock 158 hp MBL flathead. Vinyl upholstery instead of leather is more practical as well. The decks were freshly varnished winter 2016. It comes on a nice, fitted trailer and has a full cover.

    1949 Chris Craft 20 Custom

    $125,000.00

    1949 Chris Craft 20 Custom. This is hands down one of the finest boats I have listed. It was fully re-constructed in 2013 by esteemed restorer Dan Nelson in Minnesota. It is essentially all new, using the correct Honduran mahogany. The boat is entirely glued, bottom sides and decks. In three years in California it does not have a single crack! 20 Customs were notoriously under built and the methods used, while not traditional, are the only way to enjoy this model without the durability problems of the original. Correct color and pattern leather upholstery was done by Rod Souza. The original 158 hp Chris Craft MBL has been fully re-built. Comes on a custom fitted trailer.
