    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 Woods are among the most sought-after and valuable boats on today’s classic wooden boat market.

    This 1940 Gar Wood Custom Runabout named “Cracker Jack” was purchased by the Kilpatrick Sales Corporation and received on July 2nd, 1940 in St. Louis, Missouri. It was used for recreation and transportation on the Mississippi River in the Clarksville area. In 1964 the boat, along with a collection of antique cars, was involved in a warehouse fire where is suffered damage. It was finally restored in 1984 when the original owners moved to Spokane Washington and had Sid Young of Stan Craft perform the work. The current sellers purchased the boat from the original owners on October 19th, 2012 and transported it from Spokane, Washington to Nevada City, California where Curtis Bauman and Aaron Gack completely restored “Cracker Jack” to its original condition.

    “Cracker Jack” is powered by a Chrysler Crown 6 cylinder with 103 hp. It was rebuilt by John Allen in 2012. Stanley Marshall provided the upholstery work using real leather throughout.  The boat features a “no soak” fiberglass bottom which was done during the restoration in 2012 as well. 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 and comes with a 2013 California Trailer Works dual axle custom trailer.

    “Cracker Jack” won “BEST GAR WOOD OF SHOW” award in the 2016 Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance boat show.

    1959 Chris Craft 19ft Silver Arrow

    Back in the 1950’s, car manufacturers had discovered the beauty of fiberglass; it was light and easy to shape, yet strong and durable. Before long, boat builders realized fiberglass was ideally suited for their applications. At the time, Chris Craft was the leading builder of pleasure crafts in America. They started to experiment with fiberglass in 1957 and made public in 1958 the Chris Craft Silver Arrow. The Silver Arrow used a fiberglass shell molded around a traditional 19ft wooden planked boat. The Silver Arrow was known for a pair of prominent fins on the transom which was inspired by the automobiles of that time. The unique futuristic construction as well as its sleek, stylish profile makes the Silver Arrow rare and desirable.

    The Silver Arrow was built from 1958 to 1959 with a total of 92 hulls built. It has been said that about 30 still exist today. This 1959 Silver Arrow example is number 62 in the production line.

    The Silver Arrow had about 20% more weight than the equivalent wooden boat due to the added fiberglass allowing it to perform better on rougher water for an outstanding cruising experience. The Silver Arrow also has anti-trip chines that allow it to bank into a turn better than most runabouts.

    This 1959 Chris Craft 19ft Silver Arrow is powered by a Chris Craft 283 engine that was converted to a 350. It is showing an original 443.4 engine hours, so the hull has that many hours of use, but the converted engine has less.

    This boat was bought new and has been in the seller’s family ever since. Always used in Lake Tahoe, it was restored 15-20 years ago and has a West System bottom with a glass overlay on it.  It won an award in the Concourse d’Elegance boat show before being put away for storage in the seller’s garage in Rubicon for many years.

    These rare, stylish and uniquely designed boats are a head turner at any dock you pull up to!

    1971 Riva Super Ariston

    The Ariston model enjoyed a long run, with the first prototypes being built in 1950 to the last boat built in 1974. According to records a total of 1004 hulls were produced. This example is hull no. 970. It is classified as a series four hull and the last hull type of the super Ariston series, which were longer and had the best riding hull. “Super” Ariston’s account for only 181 of the total hulls produced. The super designation was assigned to boats with larger engines, in this case the big block Chevrolet marinized by Crusader Marine and Riva.

    Renegade III (original name) is a 1971 Series 4 23-foot Riva Super Ariston. It was sold new to Edmond Safra, a billionaire banker who resided in Monaco.  He was tragically killed in 1999 when his waterfront estate on Monaco harbor burned.

    This boat is the last Super Ariston to be built while Carlo Riva was still in charge of Cantiere Riva and the last one with the traditional black face VDO instruments. The current owner imported the boat to California 20 years ago. It has just recently been the subject of a comprehensive multiple year refurbishment.

    The bottom has been professionally replaced with a West System bottom by Northwest Classic Boats. The transom was also replaced. All of the rest of the wood on the boat is original. The boat only has 600 hours on it since new and less than 1 hour since its refurbishment.

    It is powered by the original Riva Crusader 320 horsepower, 427 cubic inch engine. The upholstery and flooring are new. The boat has an original Riva factory cover and comes on a custom tandem axle trailer.

    In September 2021 it was awarded Overall Best of Show – Preserved and International Boat of the Year-Preserved at the annual Antique and Classic Boat Society’s International Boat Show in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, with a near perfect score.

    1973 Chris Craft XK22

    The Chris Craft XK22 was advertised as a rocket ready to take off! Between 1971 and 1976, Chris Craft made only 230 hulls of the XK22. In 1973, only 75 hulls were built making this boat #72 out of 75 manufactured that year.

    Over the 60’s and 70’s, Chris-Craft made the transition from wooden mahogany runabouts to fiberglass runabouts. The fiberglass runabouts were built to last longer and had cheaper maintenance costs. The XK22 is recognized as one of the first fiberglass boats commercialized by Chris Craft.

    The XK22 model attracts collectors as it was at the time a symbol of luxury and modernity made for the sophisticated gentlemen. Its deep V hull was designed by Jim Wayne, while Dick Avery was in charge of the successful design of the deck.

    This 1973 Chris Craft XK22 was fully restored by Vogue Marine in Boulder City, Nevada. This included tearing the boat down to its basic structure then completely re-gel coating the boat in Chevrolet Bel Air turquoise and ivory white with chrome accents. It features an entirely new and pristine white and turquoise interior complete with custom seats designed like racing seats. This restoration took place over several years and was completed in 2015, accumulating into the impressive vessel it is today. All records for the restoration are available, as the seller has over $100k invested in the boat and custom trailer.

    This XK22 is powered by a Corvette 350 engine with 320 hp. The engine has been enhanced with high performance exhaust and ignition system. Attention to detail is evident when viewing this engine with no expense spared.

    This boat has only been used once after the restoration and then stored to preserve its pristine condition. Features on this 1973 Chris Craft XK22 include a new custom bimini top, a new sand weighted cockpit cover, a transportation cover, Sirius Satellite Radio, custom sun pad over the engine hatch, reinforced fiberglass on the deck bow for walking on, cuddy cabin under bow deck with custom cushions, and a 2016 custom California Trailer Works Inc. dual axle trailer which is painted to match.

    In business since 1956, Comitti is a small company in northern Italy nestled in the foothills beside the beautiful waters of Lake Como. It is the sole remaining Italian shipyard with a modern production facility and a growing business building wooden runabouts. The Italian tradition of fine craftsmanship and classically modern design is evident in each boat.

    Thanks to the finest materials and traditional construction methods, Comitti runabouts are produced for connoisseurs and represent the pinnacle of Italian boat-building tradition.

    Founded by Mario Comitti, the company was later managed by Mario’s son Elia, until 2003 when a new management took over the ownership of the yard. In the last 15 years it has introduced several new models. Today, Comitti builds semi-custom 100% wood construction runabouts in two lengths – SANREMO 22’ and PORTOFINO 25’ – plus the VENEZIA wood-fiberglass composite runabouts of 22, 25, 28, 31 and 34 feet.  For more information on Comitti Boats, see:  www.turnermarinegroup.com

    This 2005 Comitti 25ft Portofino was delivered new to Lake Tahoe in the summer of 2005. It is being sold by the original owner and has always been stored and maintained by Sierra Boat. Comitti boats, while crafted in wood, are as modern as any fiberglass boat. It features a MerCruiser 6.2L MPI fuel injected V-8 engine mated to a Bravo 3 duo-prop drive, which gives it enhanced maneuverability. The construction is laminated wood and epoxy for exceptional durability. It is finished with a high UV acrylic urethane finish, which is long lasting and can be polished. This boat has been re-spayed with new finish since new.

    With a style that is typical of Italian boats, the Portofino has a comfortable stern lounge for sunbathing. A built-in stern platform with ladder is ideal for swimming and watersports.

    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!

    $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

    $200,000.00

    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.

    1941 Gar Wood 25’6” Triple Cockpit Custom Runabout

    1941 Gar Wood 25’6” Triple Cockpit Custom Runabout

    $250,000.00

    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.

    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.

    2006 Riva Aquariva 33

    In the 1950’s, under the leadership of Carlo Riva, the company known as Riva Yachts began to cultivate a very prestigious reputation. Because of their dedication to excellence, Riva became the epitome of elegance, craftsmanship and style in the boating world. Using only the finest materials assembled by the most skilled and experienced craftsmen, Carlo Riva built boats for kings and queens, sportsmen, and movie stars.

    A direct descendant of the most celebrated Riva of all, the mahogany Aquarama, the Aquariva carries on a boatbuilding tradition which began 168 years ago. It’s a flawless evolution of style, as the Aquariva retains that gorgeous stem-to-stern undulation of its predecessors. From the stainless-steel bow fairlead with integrated hawse to the mahogany and maple foredeck to the teak toe rails and swept windshield, it is hands down one of the world’s most elegant runabouts.

    Currently there are four versions of the Riva Aquariva 33 available; the standard Riva version, the Aquariva Super, the Aquariva Gucci, and the Aquariva by Marc Newson. All four boats are essentially the same but differ slightly in styling and details. All models come equipped with an electronically controlled two-speed gearbox which maximizes the sporting potential of the twin 380-hp Yanmar diesel engines. The engines on this vessel have less than 110.0 engine hours, which add up to a mere 10 hours per year. The agility and responsiveness of the Riva Aquariva is what makes this boat truly special, delivering fast acceleration and a top speed of up to 42 knots with a cruising speed at 36 knots. With twin engines and a bow thruster, the captain can dock this 33ft boat with ease. See http://www.riva-yacht.com

    The standard navy-blue hull sets off the dark brightwork and contrasts beautifully with the cockpit’s creamy leather and U-shaped aft bench seating. For the captain, a leather helm chair with flip-up bolster provides standing or seated comfort. The Riva Aquariva 33  features a large double berth and a discreet toilet below. For entertaining, there is a pod-style mahogany table, and a wet bar and refrigerator/ice maker. Sun worshipers will appreciate the large transom sun pad, and her swim platform has a ladder for easy water access. Another feature is the electronically activated canopy, which works like a sports car’s cabriolet top. Flip a switch and the clever Bimini top shades the helm area and U-shaped seating area.

    This Riva has been inspected and serviced by Sierra Boat, a certified Riva dealer. The exterior mahogany wood was refinished in the fall of 2018. This boat comes on a 2004 Magic Tilt triple axle trailer.

    This is a great opportunity to own an Aquariva at the fraction of the cost of a new one!

  1. Hey Mac . Congratulations.
    I would like more info on Chris craft if you get a chance .Also are there any Chris Craft boat shows coming soon

  2. I have a 22.6′ boat. What is your fees for Winter Boat Storage? What days does it cover? What additional fees are there (e.g. winterizing/summerizing)? Do you have availability for winter 2021-22? If not, the following year?

  3. Hello, My name is Michael Aberle and I have a 1962 Chris Craft Holiday 20ft. The boat is in good condition and I have some motor work done this last year, but I would like to see what the cost would be to have you complete the restoration. I have her in California now. Could we sort up a zoom or FaceTime call to review the boat and get an estimate.
