    1939 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout, “Barrel Back”.

    The Chris Craft Custom Runabout, known colloquially in classic boating circles as the “Barrel Back,” is arguably the most desirable Chris Craft model 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. The transom is so round above water that it actually looks like a floating barrel. While Chris Craft never officially adopted the moniker, it stuck anyway. The 19-foot Custom Runabout model was built from 1939 through 1942 and only 433 were made.

    This Custom Runabout, hull number 48641, was completely restored in 2007/2008 with photo documentation of the project. The boat is currently in Bristol Condition and is equipped with a 5200 bottom to eliminate soaking. It has the fold down Bugatti style windshields as used in 1939 and 1940. Also unique to this year is the one-piece instrument panel. It is powered by the original Chris Craft M engine with 135 hp. The engine was rebuilt in 2007 and currently has less than 25 hours on it. It features a 12V charging system with one battery, a bilge pump and horn. It also comes with two covers, summer and winter. The boat sits on a single axle 2007 Trailmaster trailer with spare tire and is annually serviced.

    This boat is offsite and has not been inspected by Sierra Boat Co.

    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.

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.

    1958 Chris Craft 19ft Capri.

    From 1955 to 1958 Chris Craft produced 786 Capri’s. This 1958 Chris Craft Capri is hull number 750 making it one of the last 35 Capri’s ever built. Chris Craft offered three engine options at that time for the Capri; KBL, KLC and KFL. This boat was special ordered with a Ford Interceptor 312 engine for better performance and more horsepower, perfect for Lake Tahoe’s higher altitude. The Interceptor 312 was rebuilt by Sierra Boat in 2016, has only been used in Lake Tahoe and has very low engine hours on it.

    This 1958 Chris Craft 19ft Capri features a no soak bottom. The deck and hull sides varnish are in good condition. Everything is original besides the no soak bottom. Interior upholstery and flooring are in good condition. The boat is protected by a full custom cover that is in good condition as well.

    The boat comes with a like new 2014 California Trailer Works tandem axle custom trailer that features a swing tongue.

    This 1958 Chris Craft 19ft Capri is turn key and ideal for Tahoe!

    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!

    1939 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout.

    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 example was restored by some of the best craftsmen in northern California. 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.

    The boat features correct pattern texture burgundy leather upholstery. It has a west system bottom, for no leak usability. Power is by a later period Chris Craft 158 hp MBL engine. The engine has been done to 1939 appearance including a model M serial plate. It comes on a refurbished tandem axle trailer.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    1958 Hafer Craft 14ft

    Following World War II, in 1943, Glen Hafer started building small 14′ inboard speedboats powered by 45 hp Gray engines. He was a pioneer in this field and to this day, a number of these little gems can be seen ‘zipping’ around the lake daily. Later, as interest in inboards increased, boats were lengthened to 16′ and powered by 90 hp Grays.

    This 14ft Hafer Craft has the Gray Marine 45 hp engine with a Paragon Phantom Four transmission. It has a fiberglass bottom for no soaking. The deck varnish is in fair to good condition and the hull sides are in good condition.

    This is a very rare classic boat with great lines at a price to sell!
