2005 Comitti 25ft Portofino
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.

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.

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$298,000.00Get More Info.
1937 Gar Wood 25ft Triple Cockpit$298,000.00
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$275,000.00Get More Info.
1941 Gar Wood 25’6” Triple Cockpit Custom Runabout$275,000.00
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.

1994 Hacker-Craft 26ft Expanded Cockpit Runabout$90,000.00
1994 Hacker-Craft 26ft Expanded Cockpit Runabout.
These modern Hacker-Crafts are built using 1930’s designed but updated for modern use. While the designed from the 30’s would have been triple or twin cockpits, this updated design has an enlarged U-shaped seating arrangement. It’s much easier to get around in the boat and is more sociable as well. They feature all glued construction, so you don’t get the plank movement inherent with older boats which means less maintenance.
This boat was fully re-built by the experts at Sierra Boat. It received a completely new west system bottom in 2015 including all the framing and new keel. It received fresh coats of varnish which was done in 2015 as well. The deck and hull sides are due for repairs and varnish work. Recently the seller installed new flooring which stays cooler than the previous flooring.
The boat is powered by a Crusader Marine 454 with 350 hp. This engine has less than 300 fresh water only engine hours.
This boat comes with a bimini top with new canvas, new full custom cover, new custom cockpit covers, an upgraded stereo system with speakers and amp, and a bow thruster which makes maneuvering a breeze in tight spaces. This 1994 Hacker-Craft sits on a 2008 Trail-Rite Hacker-Craft trailer.
