    1940 Gar Wood 19ft Custom Runabout.

    Gar Wood Boats’ success was directly tied to owner Garfield Wood’s dominance in winning almost every race he ever entered. His hands-on designs and special engine configurations were considered the leading technology of the era. Gar Wood’s are among the most sought-after and valuable boats on today’s classic wooden boat market.

    This 1940 Gar Wood Custom Runabout is powered by a Chris Craft 283 V8 with 185 hp. The engine has 234.3 fresh water only hours on it. In 2015 the boat received a brand-new Sierra Boat Co. membrane bottom. The membrane bottom performs and appears like a traditional bottom but requires no soaking. The deck, hull sides and transom varnish are in excellent condition. The upholstery has been meticulously maintained and is original in styling. The boat is protected by a custom full waterline cover.

    This Gar Wood has been stored and service by Sierra Boat Co. with all the records for many years!

    1942 Chris Craft 17ft Deluxe Runabout “Barrel Back”

    1942 Chris Craft 17ft Deluxe Runabout “Barrel Back”

    From 1940 to 1942, Chris Craft only produced 425 17ft Chris Craft Deluxe Runabouts or better know as “Barrel Back” runabouts. The iconic “Barrel Back” name comes from the almost perfect semi-circle transom that looks from the rear like a floating barrel when it is in the water.  Beautifully appointed, these mahogany-hulled runabouts were built to the highest standards and the graceful lines made them popular with generations of collectors and wooden boat enthusiasts.

    This 1942 Chris Craft 17ft Deluxe Runabout was found in LA where it was used on fresh water lakes in that area. The original restoration was completed in 2001 and later the boat received new coats of varnish and mirror work at Northwest Classic Boats in Grass Valley, CA.

    This boat features a no-soak west system bottom for easy use. It is powered by an upgraded Chris Craft KL engine with 121 hp which helps it move along at Lake Tahoe’s high altitude. There is no engine hour meter, but the seller has stated that the engine has less than 200 hours on it. The boat has its original 6V electrical system.

    This “Barrel Back” has been featured in magazines and books as well as been shown at Nationals, Wood & Glory, and Lake Tahoe’s Concours d’Elegance a number of times where it won third place in the “user” class. Always lovingly cared for by the seller in its custom built, insulated, ventilated, concrete floored boat barn.

    The boat comes on a 1991 DHL tandem axle trailer with new tires and bearings. This “Barrel Back” at 17ft allows for easy storage and trailering.

    1952 Chris Craft 27ft Semi Enclosed Cruiser

    Delivered to a Los Angeles auto dealer in 1952, this 27ft Chris Craft Semi Enclosed Cruiser was moored at Newport Harbor for roughly 40 years.  Her primary purpose was to carry her multiple owners to and from Catalina Island.

    Derelict and in need of a new purpose, she was purchased in 1992 and was completely restored to her original beauty, named Viking, and brought to Lake Tahoe.  Her Tahoe debut was at the 1994 Concours where she won 2nd place and the Richard Clark Perpetual Award for Grace, Style and Excellence. She won a 2nd place again in 1995 at the Concours and a 3rd place at the 2003 Concours. In 2001, Viking was honored with the People’s Choice award at the ACBS Tahoe Keys Show and in 2005 was honored with the Kids Choice award.

    The restoration in 1992 included an epoxy glass bottom and new, Chevrolet V-8 engines. This is a very attractive and practical day-use boat. It has plenty of seating for a large group, plus a sink, stove, and refrigerator. At only 27ft, it is small enough to be trailered but is ideally suited to Lake Tahoe and its rough waters.

    Founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1875 and later relocated to Sandusky, Ohio, the Lyman Boat Works is known for building wooden, lapstrake “Clinker-Built” boats with legendary craftsmanship, unsurpassable utility, and steadfast seaworthiness in rough Lake Erie waters.

    Lyman is one of the few truly great names in American boat building. Lyman Boats quickly established a regional reputation for quality lapstrake boats. The company expanded its model offerings and helped establish the “utility boat” as a favorite among the boating public. Following World War II, Lyman production expanded to more than 4,000 boats a year, giving thousands of Americans years of enjoyment at the helm of a Lyman.

    This 1965 Lyman was fully restored in 2011/2012 by the famous Lyman restores Androscoggin Wooden Boat Works in Wayne, Maine. Androscoggin Wooden Boat Works specializes in the restorations of Lyman’s so this boat was restored properly with no details overlooked, http://www.androscogginboatworks.com/. All records from the restoration have been saved showing the complete refinish restoration as well as the install of a new PCM 5.7L HO 303 fuel injected engine with 330 hp. The records also show extras such as a custom covers, top rear and side curtains, gold leaf name, dual battery system, etc. The seller has over $75k in the restoration which the condition of the boat reflects.

    Miss Catalina 5 1938 Bombard

    One of the last of the surviving Miss Catalina Speed Boats, Miss Catalina 5 is the only one restored to her original configuration and retains her original Liberty V-12 Aircraft Engine.

    One of the last two Miss Catalina’s, number five comes from a line of 29’11” speedboats which were built as fast ride boats operating at Catalina Island. The Catalina Speed Boat Co. was incorporated in 1922 by Alfred Bombard and Wilbur White. The business plan called for these boats to be powered by World War 1 surplus Liberty engines. Twenty of these engines were purchased and served as the only power and spare parts during the 28 years of operation. Alfred Bombard had the hulls built in his company shop and they were built of high-grade Philippine mahogany with substantial framing to withstand the pounding of heavy seas during trips out of Avalon Bay. The look and configuration of the boats changed over the years, and Catalina 5 and 6, are the only survivors. With the business climate changing in the mid 60’s the company was disbanded, and the boats were sold to the Miss Balboa Speed Boat Co. in Newport Beach.

    By the late 60’s, Miss Catalina 5 had made her way to Lake Tahoe, and for years, sat forlorn under tarps awaiting a chance at new life. Her savior came in 1979, with the current owner purchasing her from Sierra Boat Company with an extensive restoration beginning in 1982. Spread out over multiple years, the work was completed in 1990. Two areas of the boat needed major work. First, the decks were wrecked and had to be completely replaced. Then there was the engine. Her cylinders were frozen in her bores and a major overhaul was needed. The structure of the hull sides and bottom were in surprising good condition and at one point the entire boat had been overlaid with fiberglass, this actually preserved the structure. We removed the old glass from the bottom, did wood repairs and laid up an extra thick layup of fiberglass using alternating layers of mat and roving cloth. The side glass was still adhering well to the sides and was retained. New leather upholstery completed the restoration.

    This is a great opportunity to own a piece of unique California history and re-live the glory days of speedboat rides. Miss Catalina 5 comes on a custom-built tandem axle trailer and has a full custom cover for protection.

    This is a very rare 1916 Lawley 37ft Vee Bottom Launch.

    Miami is an historical boat that was custom built by Lawley for Carl Fisher. Mr. Fisher was an American Entrepreneur and among many other things the main real estate developer of Miami Beach. Fisher needed a comfortable fast cruiser for his new playground and turned to the Lawley Boat Company to build him his custom boat.

    Miami was used in Florida and her name is a tribute to that history. Carl Fisher then sold it and shipped it to Michigan where it was used and loved for many years. The Michigan owner knew that a full restoration was due, but the cost prohibited him from proceeding. In 1986, Sierra Boat’s manager Dick Clark was shown Miami during one of his annual boat hunting trips and immediately recognized Miami as a boat worthy of a good home and a proper restoration. Miami arrived at Sierra Boat in 1987 and sat until 1990 when her current owner purchased the boat and set about formulating a restoration plan.

    The restoration project took the approach that all visible details would be as faithful as possible, but the powerplant and mechanical systems would be modern. Considering its age at the time, Miami was in remarkable shape. The restoration project started with the hull and continued with the cabin and complete deck replacement. The engine was replaced with a Chrysler 440 V8 to give it the performance needed in Lake Tahoe’s altitude. Miami made her first sea trial on Tahoe in the fall of 1995. In the summer of 1996, she was honored with the best professional restoration award at the Tahoe Concours d’Elegance.

    Miami has been stored and maintained by Sierra Boat since its Tahoe Arrival in 1987. The boat received a brand new cold molded bottom completed in the spring of 2011. All annual maintenance has been kept up with corresponding records. Miami is birthed for the summer months in a slip at Sierra Boat.

    In 1997, Classic Boating did an extensive article on Miami’s history and her 1990-1995 restoration project. Please see the pictures for the scanned version of the article as it goes into great detail. Miami is truly a one of a kind historical boat that is ready for the next chapter of her life!

    This is an early model, hull number 588. It is a very original boat. The decks are new, but it is believed that the rest of the boat is all original including the bottom. The boat is powered by a very rare original Fay & Bowen model LC-41 with 27 hp. This boat is in fine shape cosmetically and runs well with the original engine. As with all boats of this construction type, butted planks with no battens, it takes weeks to soak up the original bottom. It is due for a new bottom and a buyer needs to be aware that this work should be done prior to use. Comes on a fitted cradle. Price reduced, make offer!

    1941 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout “Barrel Back”

    $75,000.00

    1941 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout.

    The pre-war Chris Craft Custom Runabouts are the most iconic and collectible of all of the vintage runabouts. The 19’ version was built from 1939 to 1942. The vintage boat hobby refers to these boats as barrel backs. This is a hobby term and was never a factory name, the correct model name for the 19’ being a “custom”. In the first two years this model had a more pointed bow and fold down small windshields, often termed Bugatti windshields. For the model year 1941 and later, the hull received a more rounded bow and a four panel, folding windshield. Collectors have their preferences and the style is a matter of taste more than function. In the water they are essentially the same boat.

    The boat featured here is an older restoration with little use. It was purchased by the current owner at the Tahoe Concours d’Elegance boat show and has primarily been used on Lake Tahoe. A key feature on this boat is a glued West System bottom which is the ultimate bottom for durability. This boat can be dry launched without soaking. It also features a later series M type engine from the late 50’s. The MCL engine makes 175 hp which is 45 hp more than the original 130 hp model M. This means that the boat will really perform, especially in Tahoe’s higher altitude. It also features a 12V electrical system.

    This is not a Concours boat show winner due to the upgraded West System bottom and engine, but if you want a reliable boat you can really use, this is the one for you!

    1938 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout.

    This is the last of the early 19ft Custom runabouts. The model evolved into the barrel back models in 1939 and those boats are based on these earlier models. They were built from 1935 to 1938 and only 328 examples were produced. In my opinion, this model captures the essence of what a classic Chris Craft should look like. It has the appealing vee-shaped windshield and excellent proportions. This is an older restoration but has been used little and is still in very good condition. The engine is a period correct Model “K” engine with 85 hp, but the serial number does not match the one on the hull plaque. The bottom has been replaced but is an original type bottom and will have to be soaked.

    1939 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout 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.

    $75,000.00

    “Houston Girl” is a 1928 17ft 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. This Custom Hacker 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.

    1929 Chris Craft 38ft Custom Commuter

    $250,000.00

    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 1929 Chris Craft 38ft Custom Commuter 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.

    1937 Gar Wood 25ft Triple Cockpit.

    In 1937 Gar Wood built 267 boats, about 100 more than any other year in the 1930s. Midnight Thunder, formerly Triple Time, is one of only nine 25ft runabouts built in 1937, and one of only three 25-footers equipped with the largest engine option, the Scripps 302 V-12. The favored formula for making speedboats go fast in the 1920s and ’30s included a large displacement and low rpm power plant spinning a large propeller. The Scripps V-12 engine, model 302, original to this boat, is no exception to that formula. With a cylinder bore of 4.25 inches and a stroke of 5.25 inches, the displacement totals 894 cubic inches. The engine was said to produce 316 hp at 2,600 rpm.

    Midnight Thunder is in excellent condition. From the original Scripps V-12 engine to the period correct original pattern and color leather upholstery. A restoration was completed from 2002-2003 with wood work by Armstrong Boat Works, of Skaneateles, New York, and the engine restoration was completed by noted Scripps specialist George Shinn. The entire bottom of the boat was replaced at this time, including keel, chines, frames, and bottom planking, following Gar Wood specifications. In order to insure reliability and durability, the Scripps engine and transmission were tuned by the experts at Freedom Engine Service in the summer of 2010.

    This boat then arrived at Sierra Boat in January of 2013 and has been stored and serviced here ever since. The boat was inspected by Sierra Boat from stem to stern for the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elgance Boat Show judging. From that inspection a few items were address for the shows with the largest item being new flooring. The engine was set up and tuned for Lake Tahoe’s high-altitude boating and a custom full waterline cover was made. In 2014 the boat was fully restored including deck, hull sides and transom. At this time the name was changed from “Triple Time” to “Midnight Thunder” in gold leaf. Miscellaneous mechanical items from the judging sheet were addressed as well.

    At the Concours d’Elgance Boat Show in Lake Tahoe, this 1937 Gar Wood 25ft Triple Cockpit won 2014 Best Gar Wood of Show, 2014 Best of Show Over 23ft, 2017 Best in Show, and 2017 Best Engine.

    1938 Chris Craft 25ft Clipper Cruiser

    $49,500.00

    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 $49,500.
