    1932 Gar Wood 28ft Runabout.

    To the best of our research, “Liberty” is the only remaining Gar Wood 28ft Triple Cockpit with an original Gar Wood conversion engine. Only four of the 28-55 runabouts were built in that year, according to records compiled by Tony Mollica. Gar Wood purchased and marinized the World War I engines as a way to provide lightweight 400 hp engines, first in the Baby Gar 33ft boats and later in a small amount of 28 footers. The Scripps V-12 engines would not be available for a few years later, so in 1932 if you wanted performance, the Liberty V-12 was the option of choice.

    Sierra acquired this boat as a complete derelict, sometime in the 70’s. Much of the boat’s hardware was missing but the engine was still there. Restoration was started in the early 80’s and at the time it was one of Sierra’s most extensive restoration projects, requiring almost an entire replacement of every frame and plank. That work was done by then employee, Tony Brown, now the owner of Western Runabouts. The engine, as mentioned was there, but in sorry condition. At the time, we did not have the needed spare parts to rebuild it. We did have however, a complete running Liberty that had come out of a 33ft Gar Wood. Refurbishing of the engine and installation was done by Sierra’s legendary mechanic, Dave Chanda.

    Fast forward to present, the boat has once again had a light re-restoration of the wood and upholstery, entrusted to Tony Brown. The engine was removed by Sierra and master engine builder Cooper Stubbs completely tore down the engine for an inspection and new gaskets. All engine systems were checked over and re-built as needed.

    A favorite at the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance, “Liberty” stands out from the crowd. If you have never driven a Liberty powered boat, there is nothing quite like it. 1,649 cubic inches of engine turning at 1,800 rpm with 5″ exhausts. The torque is immense, and every slight turn of the throttle is instantly translated into more speed.

    This is a chance to own a truly one of a kind 1932 Gar Wood that has a long history on Tahoe and has been cared for by the best craftsmen on the lake.

    $225,000.00

    T-44  Wild Horses – 1997 33ft Gentleman’s Racer.

    The concept behind the creation of this boat was developed by Ken Bassett of Onion River Boatworks in Vermont and Tony Brown at Western Runabouts in California. They used the design of a 1920s-era Hacker-Craft named “Nick-Nack” as a basic blueprint – but many modifications needed to be made to accommodate the new engine and handle the power it develops.

    The idea was to put a Rolls-Royce Meteor V12 tank engine into a speed boat. The Meteor V12 was a development of the legendary Rolls-Royce Merlin aero engine from aircraft’s like the Spitfire and P51 Mustang. The Meteor was developed for use in tanks, and it was so successful that it fundamentally changed the way tanks were designed. With a capacity of 27 liters (1648 cubic inches), no supercharger (as was used on the Merlin) and a power output of 650 hp, the Meteor proved both reliable and easy to produce – in fact many early Meteors were built from the remains of crashed Merlins.

    The original boat, Nick-Nack, had been a major icon in its day. It was owned by Commodore Humphrey Birge of Buffalo, New York and it shattered the one-lap, 50-mile and 150-mile records at the Wood-Fisher race at Detroit, Michigan in 1921.

    The Commodore’s vessel had a 200 hp Hall-Scott motor fitted – approximately 70% less powerful than the mighty V12 sitting in the new boat handcrafted by Brown & Bassett. The interior is upholstered from maroon leather and there’s a forward jump seat that is said to be for “brave passengers”!

    T-44 is a one owner 33ft gentleman’s racer that has been meticulously maintained and comes on a custom-configured trailer for easy transport.

    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!

    1928 Custom Hacker 17ft

    $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

    $295,000.00

    1929 Chris Craft 38ft Custom Commuter

    $295,000.00

    This is a 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 boat 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    1941 Gar Wood 25’6” Triple Cockpit Custom Runabout

    1941 Gar Wood 25’6” Triple Cockpit Custom Runabout

    $295,000.00

    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.

It is essentially all new, using the correct Honduran mahogany. The boat is entirely glued construction, bottom sides and decks. In three years in California it does not have a single crack!

    20 Customs were notoriously under built and the methods used, while not traditional, are the only way to enjoy this model without the durability problems of the original. Correct color and pattern leather upholstery was done by Rod Souza. The original 158 hp Chris Craft MBL has been fully re-built.

    This 1949 Chris Craft 20 Custom comes on a custom fitted trailer and has a custom full waterline cover to protect it.

  • 1954 Chris Craft 24ft Holiday

    1954 Chris Craft 24ft Holiday.

    The large Holiday series started out at 23′. In 1954 they reversed the rake of the transom and gained another foot of length giving the model more interior space. The Holiday was the more upscale model to the basic 22′ Sportsman. It features two toned red and blond stained mahogany and a steeply raked windshield. The interior has plush, deeply upholstered seats and teak flooring. The middle seat was standard for this model. These were the first of the Chris Craft runabouts to feature the “clipper bow” or ‘bullnose” styling to the stem. This feature was adopted for all models in the 1955 model year. While some might confuse this model with the later Continental series, they are a very different boat in all regards. In our experience, they handle and ride much better due to a narrower bottom.

    This example has had extensive restoration work done. Sierra Boat completed the restoration, started by another shop, and has fully sorted the boat out. The bottom is a 5200 type, with no leaks. The engine is a 175 HP Chris Craft MCL model, overhauled in 2013, which is a later version of the original 158 HP MBL. It has more horsepower and 12-volt electrics.

    The boat has been shown at the Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance where she garnered a 2nd place in class.

    This is a perfect boat for Tahoe with seating for 9 people and the size to handle Tahoe’s rough water.

    It comes with extensive equipment including a new waterline cover and a custom built tandem axle trailer.

  • 1957 Century 18ft Arabian

    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.
