    $120,000.00

    1929 Chris Craft 28ft Triple Cockpit

    $120,000.00

    This is a 1929 Chris Craft 28ft Triple Cockpit.

    Away She Go II is an original Lake Tahoe Boat. She has been extensively re-built and features a west system bottom and hull sides. Originally powered by a Chris Craft A-120 V-8, she now has a late 80’s Chrysler 440 V-8 with 330 hp which runs great at Lake Tahoe.

    Originally owned by the Shainwald family, she spent many years on their Brushwood Estate on Tahoe’s West Shore.

    This is a solid boat at a great price. She has the size to take Tahoe’s rough waters and the power to move alone at a decent clip. Comes on a tandem axle trailer. Price recently reduced!

  • 1929 Chris Craft 38ft Custom Commuter

    $295,000.00

    1929 Chris Craft 38ft Custom Commuter

    $295,000.00

    This is a 1929 Chris Craft 38ft Custom Commuter.

    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 to fill the demand. 65 examples were built from hull no. 5001 to no. 5065, most of them built in 1929 before the depression killed the 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. The engine was changed out to a modern Mercruiser 496, giving the power needed in Lake Tahoe’s altitude. The boat comes with a fully re-built Chris Craft A-120, which was the original engine used before the 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 pull man 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 the original factory drawings as a guide.

    1936 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout

    $33,000.00

    This boat is a 1936 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout.

    Very nice restoration with a west system bottom on it for no leaks. Beautiful tan leather upholstery in excellent condition. The boat is powered by a fully rebuilt Chris Craft M engine with only 20 hours on it.

    This is the early series custom runabout, built from 1935 to 1938, with a total of 325 built. It is the predecessor to the later barrel back customs. The barrel backs were based on the same hull. This series has all the classic looks, with great lines and a proper vee windshield. Priced to sell!

    1937 Hacker-Craft 24ft Triple Cockpit

    $125,000.00

    This is a 1937 Hacker-Craft 24ft Triple Cockpit.

    Fully researched and restored to the highest level, every detail of this boat is believed to be as correct as possible. Hacker-Craft boats were built in small quantities and are arguably the finest of the American built boats. One of their attributes is an exceptional ride which can be very important on rough Lake Tahoe days. It features a west system bottom and leather upholstery. The Scripps 152 is correct for the boat but may not be original. It comes on a fitted tandem axle trailer. This boat is turn key and a must see!

  • 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.

    1946 Glazer E Class Service Runabout

    $52,000.00

    This is a unique 1946 Glazer E Class Service Runabout.

    After the War boat racing really took off. The American Powerboat Association (APBA), had a number of racing classes and among them was the E Class Service Runabout. The rules of this class dictated that the boat be no longer than 16’8″ long, weigh no more than 1,750 lbs., be able to carry a driver and a passenger, and have an engine no larger than 255 Cu In. Typically made of marine plywood these boats could reach speeds of up to 60 mph. This boat is considered a “vintage” racer under APBA rules. For more about this class, go to:

    http://vintagehydroplanes.com/apba_history/speed_records/service_runabout.html

    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!

  • 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.

    1955 Chris Craft 21ft Capri

    $47,000.00

    This is a 1955 Chris Craft 21ft Capri.

    Only 170 21ft Capri’s were built from 1955 to 1956. Even fewer were built with the Chrysler M45 hemi option. Of all the Capri models, this is the most desirable and demand has pushed prices to just under $100,000 for top quality boats.

    This Capri has a fiberglass bottom with no leaks. The deck just received a fresh coat of varnish. The boat is powered with the rare Chrysler Hemi engine that was taken to a racing shop and was bored and stroked for more horsepower and torque. The extra power makes this boat perfect for high altitude. Everything is original besides the fiberglass bottom. Interior upholstery is in very good condition and the flooring is in good condition.

    This Chris Craft is turn key and ideal for Tahoe!

    1975 Pedrazzini 28ft Super Aquamar

    $250,000.00

    This is a 1975 Pedrazzini 28ft Super Aquamar made in Switzerland.

    While Riva may be the Mercedes Benz of classic boats, Pedrazzini is the exclusive Bentley/Rolls Royce of the class. In fact, the Chairmen of Porsche/Audi/Bentley captains a Pedrazzini Special identical to this one that is available.

    Here is some information from Pedrazzini’s website.

    Pedrazzini runabouts: crafted from the most exquisite materials with great skill and extreme patience.

    Pedrazzini has been committed to the art of boat building for over 100 years. As in the good old days, the company’s mahogany runabouts are crafted by hand. Step by step, the individual elements are meticulously finished and assembled. It can take up to nine months to complete a single runabout. Each boat that leaves the yard reflects Pedrazzini’s dedication to quality, attention to detail, and flair for timelessly elegant styling.

    The Super Aquamar is similar to the more famous Riva Aquarama. Sierra Boat has done significant refurbishing on this boat. We recently re-powered the boat with fuel injected 5.7 L Mercruiser engines. This is a great boat for Lake Tahoe and easily handles Tahoe’s rough water.

    $99,500.00

    This is a 1994 Hacker-Craft 26ft Runabout.

    The boat was fully re-built by the experts at Sierra Boat. It received a completely new west system bottom in 2015 including all the framing and new keel. It has fresh coats of varnish which was done in 2015 as well.

    These modern Hacker-Crafts are built using 1930’s designed but updated for modern use. While the designed from the 30’s would have been triple or twin cockpits, this updated design has an enlarged U-shaped seating arrangement. It’s much easier to get around in the boat and is more sociable as well. They feature all Glued construction, so you don’t get the plank movement inherent with older boats which means less maintenance.

    This boat comes with a bimini top, transportation cover, full custom cover, Hacker-Craft trailer, and a bow thruster which makes maneuvering a breeze in tight spaces. Price reduced for quick sale!

    1998 Hacker-Craft 31 Runabout. This is a rare opportunity to buy a brand new Hacker-craft at a fraction of the new cost. This boat was delivered to California in May of 1998 and has never been used. The engines have been run annually, but otherwise it has not touched the water since leaving the factory. It had a desirable enlarged 2nd cockpit and includes a picnic table. Perfect for taking friends on a cocktail cruise. Twin engines give it terrific performance and the specification sheet shows a “bay bottom”, which mean’t it had a deeper dead rise than standard. Translation, it rides beautifully. It comes on the Hacker supplied Loadmaster trailer. It even has a toilet under the 3rd cockpit seat and a small refrigerator up front. Cover included along with a rear cockpit tonneau.
