    1940 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout “Barrel Back”

    $95,000.00

    1940 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 1940 Custom Barrel Back was fully restored and is in excellent condition. It features the two-piece coverboards and the fold down Bugatti style windshields as used in 1939 and 1940.

    This 1940 Chris Craft has a west system bottom for “no soaking” usability. Power is by a Chris Craft M engine with 130 hp that was rebuilt in 2016 by Sierra Boat. The rebuilt engine has extremely low hours on it.  The deck and hull sides were fully restored in the winter of 2016/2017 by Sierra Boat as well.

    This 1940 Chris Craft is protected by a custom waterline sunbrella cover that was made in 2016.

    Don’t miss out on one of the most iconic boats of all time!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Don’t miss out on one of the most iconic boats of all time!

    “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

    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.
