    1932 Gar Wood 28ft Runabout – SOLD

    $350,000.00

    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.

    1949 Chris Craft 20ft Custom – SOLD

    $45,000.00

    1949 Chris Craft 20ft Custom.

    The 20ft Custom Runabout is one of the best post war boats that Chris Craft built. They were very high quality and were a continuation of the pre-war 19ft Custom, AKA 19ft Barrel Back. These boats have become one of the most collectible boats on the market.

    This 1949 Chris Craft 20ft was delivered in June of 1949 to a dealer in Duluth, Minnesota. Nearly 40 years later, the restorer Don Viehmeyer discovered her in Minnesota in 1986 in very poor condition and restored her in 2000. The current owners purchased “Clementine” in May of that year. Her name originated from the song “Oh My Darling Clementine” because she is, as the lyrics go, a “49’er”.

    Clementine was a family boat and a daily user on Lake Tahoe. She is hull #362 of a series of 367 which makes her one of the last manufactured in the series. Clementine has been “Miss May” in a national calendar and has appeared in Classic Boating Magazine.  The boat has earned first and second place awards at the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance. The boat was last refreshed by the crew at Obexer’s Boat Company.

    The boat comes on a custom Trailer Plus tandem axle trailer that was fully serviced in the spring of 2019 and is protected by a custom full waterline cover.

    1950 Chris Craft 23ft Holiday.

    Chris Craft was founded in the late 19th century by Chris Smith and became famous for its mahogany hulled powerboats from the 1920’s through the 1950’s. They built many different sizes and types of boats ranging from utility style to full race boats.

    This Chris Craft is 1 of 88 23′ Holidays that the company built from 1950-1952. The hull # is H-23-005, making it one of the first few 23’ Holiday’s built. The boat is powered by a Marine Power 260 hp engine with a Holley carburetor. The engine has only 70.5 hours on it and had a complete tune up in 2016.

    This boat features a no soaking epoxy bottom that is in excellent condition. In the winter of 2018/2019 the decks, coverboards, and transom were stripped, stained and re-varnished by Sierra Boat. This boat came to Sierra Boat in the spring of 2016 and has been kept in a slip for each summer season including now where it currently resides.

    The combination of blonde and dark rich Philippine mahogany, teak floors and perfect plush red upholstery is truly a must see!

    $250,000.00

    1967 Rio 28ft Super Colorado.

    “Avionautica Rio” was then founded in 1961, building beautiful motorboats in mahogany with Chris Craft and Rolls-Royce engines along with striking model names such as Colorado, Paranà, Bonito, and Espera. Since the early 1960’s, Rio boats made from mahogany have been sailing the Mediterranean to reach every market throughout Europe. These motorboats were built with great skill and wisdom during a period that culminated in an agreement with Rolls Royce to build a model carrying a V8 engine, the ultimate expression of two prestigious brands. Check out the history at Rio Yachts, https://www.rioyachts.net/en/50-anni-di-storia/

    The Rio shipyard was originally just down the street from the famed Riva shipyard. The influence of the Riva brand is evident in the Colorado, taking many styling clues from the iconic Aquarama. True to all things Italian, the Rio boats are highly crafted works of art. Rio’s should be seen as a different brand than Riva, just as Lamborghini is different from Ferrari, not inferior just different.

    The example listed here is the only known to exist 1967 Rio 28ft Super Colorado in the US, and one of only a handful of Rio’s in this country. The “super” designation is due to the use of “Big Block” engines, in this case a pair of Chrysler Marine 440’s. It is not known how many Colorado’s were built, but it is estimated that the numbers were very low, and certainly the Super is rarer still. The hull number is 035, which assumes it is the 35th built.

    Sierra Boat has been the primary caretaker of this boat since its restoration in the mid 90’s. It has been well taken care of and was recently completely re-varnished and the engines were totally re-built.

    This is a perfect boat for Tahoe and capable of handling rough water with ease.

    1990 Gar Wood 22ft Streamliner – SOLD

    $75,000.00

    1990 Gar Wood Streamliner.

    This is a replica of the Gar Wood Steamliner model built in the late 30’s and early 40’s. Very few of those original boats exist, with only 18 produced. The best feature of these boats was the open cockpit seating, which was U shaped in the back. This was a much more practical seating arrangement than the typical 3 cockpit arrangement. The seating meant a vee drive engine arrangement, newly developed by Chrysler. The limitation of this arrangement was that the small Chrysler was not very powerful and performance was lacking.

    In the 90’s the Turcott brothers started building replica Gar Woods in upstate NY. They still build them to this day. See garwoodcustomboats.com for more on this company. This 1990 Gar Wood Streamliner is one of the first models they began to replicate, now with modern power and performance. Add to this epoxy glued construction and you have a boat that is a vast improvement on the original. One change they made to the original is now the front two rows of seats have a walk-through, so the boat is easy to get around in. The walk-throughs have drop in bottom and back cushion inserts to increase seating if needed.

    This example has spent most of its life on Lake Tahoe and has been professionally maintained.

    After the War boat racing really took off. The American Powerboat Association (APBA), had a number of racing classes and among them was the E Class Service Runabout. The rules of this class dictated that the boat be no longer than 16’8″ long, weigh no more than 1,750 lbs., be able to carry a driver and a passenger, and have an engine no larger than 255 Cu In. Typically made of marine plywood these boats could reach speeds of up to 60 mph. This boat is considered a “vintage” racer under APBA rules. For more about this class, go to:

    http://vintagehydroplanes.com/apba_history/speed_records/service_runabout.html

    Baby Live Wires was constructed by John (Pops) Glazer, who was a well-respected builder of small racing boats. Baby Live Wires was raced in its earlier years in Buffalo, NY. The engine features Offenhauser aluminum heads and an Offy intake with duel Stromberg 97’s. It also has a Mallory Unilite Electronic Distributor. It is ready for vintage racing or the show boat circuit.

    In the Spring of 2016, Sierra Boat did extensive mechanical work to Baby Live Wires. The engine was removed, disassembled and resealed. Heads were removed to check for straightness and cylinders were inspected, all looked brand new. New oil pan gasket, intake, copper fuel line and new gauges were installed. Both carbs were rebuilt. The bottom end of the motor and the reverse gear was disassembled and inspected. The old electrical wiring was removed and replaced with new wiring. Everything was reassembled, repainted and done at show quality detail. A fresh coat of varnish went on the deck and hull sides and the sign painting was touched up.

    Baby Live Wires is ready for a showroom or a race!

    The boat is powered by a 310 hp Mercruiser engine which gives it great performance in the altitude over the stock 158 hp MBL flathead. Besides modern power, several details keep this boat from being a show boat like vinyl upholstery instead of leather. The vinyl upholstery is more practical as it withstands wear tear better then leather. The glued construction makes the wood very stable and eliminates plank movement and water leaking. The decks were freshly varnished in the winter of 2016. It comes on a nice, fitted trailer and has a full waterline custom cover.

    This boat has been in a slip each summer at Sierra Boat Co. since 2014. It is turn key and ready to be enjoyed!
