    $28,500.00

    1923 Fay & Bowen 20ft Launch

    $28,500.00

    This is a 1923 Fay & Bowen 20ft Launch.

    Considered by some to be the pinnacle of classic boat styling, Fay & Bowens have a distinctive, refined shape with classic brass fittings. Operating as the Fay & Bowen Engine Company out of Geneva, NY in 1904, Walter Fay and Ernest Bowen built an extensive dealer network to sell their engines and boats. The company built only around 900 boats up until its demise, a few months before the stock market crash of 1929. Fay & Bowen built beautiful launches, both of open and long-deck, auto-boat configurations, and often with strongly radiused transoms as well as torpedo sterns. Because of their beautiful lines and their impressive feel on the water, Fay & Bowen boats today are highly sought after.

    This Fay & Bowen is powered with a Chris Craft 4 cylinder engine. It has a fiberglass bottom that is in excellent condition with no leaks. The deck is in good condition and the deck varnish is in fair condition. The hull sides paint is fair, but the framing structure is solid. The interior upholstery is in good condition with no rips or tears.

    This boat comes with a full custom cover, custom interior carpets, 2 old style rope fenders and a custom 1996 Wesco trailer with a folding tongue.

    This Fay & Bowen has been well maintained by its current owner, is turn key, and ready to be used!

    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.

    1935 Hutchinson 36ft Commuter Sedan

    $315,000.00

    1935 Hutchinson 36ft Commuter Sedan.

    Hutchinson Brothers Boat Works, Inc. was founded in Alexandria Bay, New York in a rented building in 1902. A true family business, all four Hutchinson brothers (James Herbert, George, Thomas and Joseph) as well as eleven to sixteen other men worked day after day to build exceptionally crafted mahogany planked boats ranging from 19′ utility boats to 48′ runabouts. From 1902 to 1964, it is said that Hutchinson built over 250 boats including houseboats, racing boats, launches, utilities, sedans, cruisers, runabouts and even boats for the war effort, many of their own design but some based off the designs of other famous manufacturers. They remain very tasteful and more exclusive alternatives to some of the more common Hacker and Chris Craft brands, but arguably just as stylish and with craftsmanship second-to-none!

    Columbia is powered by a Mercruiser 8.1S HO with 420 hp. It has an original bottom on it that will soak up. The black sedan top is in excellent condition. The upholstery, deck and hull side varnish, and flooring are in good condition. This sedan commuter has a wonderful inside cabin with a very sociable seating arrangement. It features a driving cockpit in front of the cabin and behind the cabin are two bench seats to enjoy the sun!

    Columbia has been in the care of Sierra Boat Company for more than 30 years. This boat has been maintained properly with all service records available.

    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.

    1938 Chris Craft 25ft Clipper Cruiser

    $59,500.00

    1938 Chris Craft 25ft Clipper Cruiser.

    Klondike is a prime example of Chris Craft’s twenty-five-foot Clipper Cruiser. They were built from 1937 to 1939 with 353 examples produced. Of over 300 examples built, the owner knows of only 2-3 others and none in original condition. This boat been fully restored to “as-delivered” condition, the result of extensive research and aided by vintage photos and documents obtained through the Mariners Museum. The boat received an extensive restoration in 2009-10, which included a full west system bottom and hull.

    Although it is done to vintage standards, it is a very usable weekend cruiser with sleeping for four, alcohol stove, sink, 15 gal water tank, ice box and porta-potty. It comes on a galvanized Pacific tandem trailer. It also includes a full two-piece canvas cover with tie downs for trailering, period style blankets and director’s chairs.

    Klondike is probably one of the most awarded boats around having garnered 10 top awards at Lake Tahoe and various ACBS international shows around the country. It was the best of show restored at the 2015 ACBS International Show at Gull Lake MN.

    The cost to restore this boat far exceeds the asking price of $59,500.

    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.

  • 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.

    Since the beginning, Christopher Smith crafted the boats that dreams are made of. Chris-Craft boats became the cultural icons that gave people a new freedom to explore the clear waters of local lakes and distant shores. More than any other brand, Chris Craft was responsible for America’s romance with boats – and ultimately, for redefining boating pleasure for generations of people everywhere.

    This Chris Craft is in very good condition. It was fully restored in 2010 and hardly used after the restoration. It received new bottom paint and varnish in 2015. The hemi engine was switched out in the fall of 2017 by Sierra Boat to a rebuilt Chevy small block 5.7L with 270 hp. The interior upholstery and flooring is in very good condition besides one small tear on the engine box. The bottom is an epoxy plywood bottom and is in very good condition with no leaks.

    1957 Century 18ft Arabian.

    The 1957 Arabian is perhaps one of the best-looking Arabian’s ever built. It is estimated that 41 were produced and we have only accounted for 10 over the last 25 years. These are very rare largely because the buying public was finding utility boats, like the Resorter and Coronado, to be more usable than the traditional cockpit designs. This boat was designed to go head to head with the Chris Craft Capri. The Arabian had a great advantage over the Capri in that it was available with far more horsepower.

    This example comes with the 215 hp Ford Interceptor engine that performs well at high altitude here at Lake Tahoe. Sierra Boat did a complete restoration on this boat in the fall of 2004 and the boat has not been used since. The project started with a west system bottom for no soaking and fresh varnish all around. This boat has stunning blond Avidore decks offset by red African mahogany. The yellow and brown upholstery is the original styling and in excellent condition.

    This is a great opportunity to buy a fully restored boat at a fraction of the cost of the restoration.
