  • 1939 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout

    $89,900.00

    1939 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout

    $89,900.00

    1939 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout.

    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 example was restored by some of the best craftsmen in northern California. 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.

    The boat features correct pattern texture burgundy leather upholstery. It has a west system bottom, for no leak usability. Power is by a later period Chris Craft 158 hp MBL engine. The engine has been done to 1939 appearance including a model M serial plate. It comes on a refurbished tandem axle trailer.

  • 1941 Gar Wood 25’6” Triple Cockpit Custom Runabout

    $325,000.00

    1941 Gar Wood 25’6” Triple Cockpit Custom Runabout

    $325,000.00

    This is a very rare 1941 Gar Wood 25’6’’ Triple Cockpit Custom Runabout.

    Only 35 25-foot Custom Runabouts were ever built by Gar Wood during its 10-year production run from 1932-41. A mere sixteen are known to exist today. Considered by most to be the pinnacle of Gar Wood design, the 1941 models had the most bow flare, the barreled-cutwater design, high-crowned decks and the aft-raked transom, which added 6 inches of length and completed the radical streamlining of the 1941 lineup.

    One of only two 25-foot 6-inch hulls built—both for 1941—it is the last of only five with the huge 316 HP, 894 CI Scripps model 302 V-12 engine. This engine was the top-of-the-line option for the 25-footers, and it pushed the boats to 50 MPH, making it what Gar Wood claimed to be the fastest stock runabout available at the time. It’s price when new in 1941 was a staggering $7,550.

    The 1941 Gar Wood 25-foot 6-inch Custom Runabout featured rich heavy-grained pleated burgundy leather upholstery throughout, with comfortable seating for eight to 10 adult passengers. An abundance of the most beautiful streamlined chromed-brass hardware—which was a Gar Wood trademark—helped make the big, triple–cockpit Gar Woods the boat to own on Lake Tahoe. Though “Hae Dae III”—the name given to the boat by its original owner Herbert Day—was actually delivered new to Newport Beach, California, just after New Years in January 1941, by that summer, it was home at Tahoe, where it was raced in several of the Tahoe Yacht Club events. It won first place in the “Bang and Go Back” race and third place in the Lake Championship Free-For-All Race in both July and August 1941. Hae Dae III was the last 25’6’’ Custom Runabout shipped by Gar Wood.

    Hae Dae III has only had four owners in its lifetime on Lake Tahoe. Tony Brown of Western Runabouts completed a significant preservation restoration in 2002. It has been awarded “Best Gar Wood of Show” at the prestigious Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance twice, in 2002 and 2004.

  • 1947 Chris Craft 20ft Custom Runabout

    $89,000.00

    1947 Chris Craft 20ft Custom Runabout

    $89,000.00

    This is a 1947 Chris Craft 20ft Custom Runabout.

    Completely restored in 2001, it features fully glued construction and modern power. The 20ft 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 19ft Custom, AKA 19ft Barrel Back. They have become one of the most collectable boats on the market.

    The boat is powered by a 310 hp Mercruiser engine which gives it great performance in the altitude over the stock 158 hp MBL flathead. Besides modern power, several details keep this boat from being a show boat like vinyl upholstery instead of leather. The vinyl upholstery is more practical as it withstands wear tear better then leather. The glued construction makes the wood very stable and eliminates plank movement and water leaking. The decks were freshly varnished in the winter of 2016. It comes on a nice, fitted trailer and has a full waterline custom cover.

    This boat has been in a slip each summer at Sierra Boat Co. since 2014. It is turn key and ready to be enjoyed!

  • Chris Craft 20 Custom

    1948 Chris Craft 20ft Custom Runabout

    $59,500.00

    1948 Chris Craft 20ft Custom Runabout

    $59,500.00

    This is a 1948 Chris Craft 20ft Custom Runabout.

    The 20ft Custom was the post war continuation of the pre-war 19ft Custom Runabout, better known as the barrel back. The post war boats were more modern in every way, sporting a much roomier and plush cockpit. Extra thick padded bolsters emulate the finest cars of the day. The two-tone red and blond wood stain was the debut for this color combination. The boat is powered by a 158 hp Chris Craft MBL engine which gives this boat respectable performance with 30+ MPH on Lake Tahoe.

    Material Girl is an older restoration but has been well taken care of and is still in very good to excellent condition. She was restored by well-known restorer Dave Wright and features fully epoxy glued construction and a west-system bottom for leak free use. The upholstery is genuine leather as original. All details are show correct.

    Comes on a 2011 tandem trailer.

    This Boat won the Best Chris Craft Award at the 2011 Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance.

  • 1949 Chris Craft 20ft Custom – SOLD

    $125,000.00

    1949 Chris Craft 20ft Custom – SOLD

    $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.
