1947 Chris Craft 20ft Custom Runabout

by

$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!
