  • 1928 Custom Hacker 17ft

    $90,000.00

    1928 Custom Hacker 17ft

    $90,000.00

    “Houston Girl” is a 1928 17’ Custom – Hacker 151 Class Pelican single step racing hydroplane.

    This boat is a John Hacker design which ran in the limited 151 cu.in. displacement class in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s, a support class running with the APBA Gold Cup race series.

    Commodore Henry Faulk of the Houston Yacht Club and President of the Mississippi Valley Power Boat Association had her built. She was campaigned from Havana, Cuba to San Diego, California.

    The Peerless 151 motor was restored by John Allen of Allen’s Marine Engines. John Allen is considered to be one of the top vintage marine engine restorers on the west coast. But not only did John Allen restore the motor for “Houston Girl”, he completed the restoration of the boat and the original vintage trailer too. She was completed in 2010 in time for the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance in June. “Houston Girl” was awarded the Most Unique Boat of Show and Best Hacker Craft of Show at the prestigious 2010 Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance.

  • 1938 Chris Craft 16ft Special Race Boat

    1938 Chris Craft 16ft Special Race Boat

    $75,000.00

    1938 Chris Craft 16ft Special Race Boat.

    From 1937 to 1940, Chris Craft made 167 16ft Special Race Boats. Most of them had red bottom color, white waterline and blue hull sides. Chris Craft offered 4 engines options; KA, H, KB, & K. The upholstery was also red, white and blue for most of the 167 produced boats.

    “Pretty Please” is one of a kind. Instead of the red, white and blue coloring this boat was originally all varnish from the factory which makes it rare. What makes it one of a kind is the special windshield that was ordered and only put on this one 16ft Special Race Boat. This Chris Craft was fully restored in 2014 and is in excellent condition. It is powered by a Chris Craft KB engine with 121 hp.

    Don’t miss out on this opportunity to own a rare one of a kind Chris Craft!

    $42,000.00

    Chris Craft Custom Runabout 19′

    This is the last of the early 19ft Custom runabouts. The model evolved into the barrel back models in 1939 and those boats are based on these earlier models. They were built from 1935 to 1938 and only 328 examples were produced. In my opinion, this model captures the essence of what a classic Chris Craft should look like. It has the appealing vee-shaped windshield and excellent proportions. This is an older restoration but has been used little and is still in very good condition. The engine is a period correct Model “K” engine with 85 hp, but the serial number does not match the one on the hull plaque. The bottom has been replaced but is an original type bottom and will have to be soaked.

    1939 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Barrel Back

    $70,000.00

    1939 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Barrel Back.

    The iconic custom runabout, also known as the Barrel Back, was produced from 1939 to 1942, with a total of 433 hulls produced. They represented the highest level of craftsmanship Chris Craft ever offered because it required skilled craftsmen to produce the full half circle transom shape. These boats were the inspiration for Carlo Riva and his legendary Ariston and Aquarama models.

    This 1939 Custom Barrel Back was fully restored in 1994 and was used up until 2005 when it went into storage at Sierra Boat and has not been in service until now. It represents a late 1939 build with two-piece coverboards. Unique to this year is the one-piece instrument panel. This boat has the fold down Bugatti style windshields as used in 1939 and 1940.

    It has a west system bottom, for no leak usability. Power is by a Chris Craft KFL engine with 130 hp. The upholstery is not period correct but is in good condition. The deck and hull side varnish are in good condition.

    Baby Live Wires was constructed by John (Pops) Glazer, who was a well-respected builder of small racing boats. Baby Live Wires was raced in its earlier years in Buffalo, NY. The engine features Offenhauser aluminum heads and an Offy intake with duel Stromberg 97’s. It also has a Mallory Unilite Electronic Distributor. It is ready for vintage racing or the show boat circuit.

    In the Spring of 2016, Sierra Boat did extensive mechanical work to Baby Live Wires. The engine was removed, disassembled and resealed. Heads were removed to check for straightness and cylinders were inspected, all looked brand new. New oil pan gasket, intake, copper fuel line and new gauges were installed. Both carbs were rebuilt. The bottom end of the motor and the reverse gear was disassembled and inspected. The old electrical wiring was removed and replaced with new wiring. Everything was reassembled, repainted and done at show quality detail. A fresh coat of varnish went on the deck and hull sides and the sign painting was touched up.

    Baby Live Wires is ready for a showroom or a race!

    Last Time, was purchased by Tahoe legend, Wibur Miller in the early 90’s. A Tahoe original boat, she had been used hard and was in need of total restoration. Wilbur had owed a number of racers over the years and he loved them. This was to be the “last time” he had one restored. Completed in the 90’s she has been shown in numerous Tahoe Concours shows. The boat is now in need of some refreshment to the original work. Most importantly, repairs are needed on the fiberglassed bottom, specifically at the transom. Here’s a chance to own a piece of Tahoe history.

    1958 Hafer Craft 14ft.

    Following World War II, in 1943, Glen Hafer started building small 14′ inboard speedboats powered by 45 hp Gray engines. He was a pioneer in this field and to this day, a number of these little gems can be seen ‘zipping’ around the lake daily. Later, as interest in inboards increased, boats were lengthened to 16′ and powered by 90 hp Grays.

    This 14ft Hafer Craft has the Gray Marine 45 hp engine with a Paragon Phantom Four transmission. It has a fiberglass bottom for no soaking. The deck varnish is in fair to good condition and the hull sides are in good condition.
