1948 Chris Craft 20ft Custom Runabout

by

$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.
