Utility

Utility, like the name implies, the utility type boat has more usable space and is more versatile than a comparably sized runabout type boat. The reason is an open floor plan, usually consisting of a front bench seat, the engine under a box and a bench seat in the rear. Larger models may have a middle seat as well. They are easy to get around in and have floor space to stow, skis, ice chests, dogs etc. Think of it a a family station wagon. with a proper power, they are also suitable for watersports, including water skiing and wakeboarding.

    1952 Chris Craft 27ft Semi Enclosed Cruiser

    Delivered to a Los Angeles auto dealer in 1952, this 27ft Chris Craft Semi Enclosed Cruiser was moored at Newport Harbor for roughly 40 years.  Her primary purpose was to carry her multiple owners to and from Catalina Island.

    Derelict and in need of a new purpose, she was purchased in 1992 and was completely restored to her original beauty, named Viking, and brought to Lake Tahoe.  Her Tahoe debut was at the 1994 Concours where she won 2nd place and the Richard Clark Perpetual Award for Grace, Style and Excellence. She won a 2nd place again in 1995 at the Concours and a 3rd place at the 2003 Concours. In 2001, Viking was honored with the People’s Choice award at the ACBS Tahoe Keys Show and in 2005 was honored with the Kids Choice award.

    The restoration in 1992 included an epoxy glass bottom and new, Chevrolet V-8 engines. This is a very attractive and practical day-use boat. It has plenty of seating for a large group, plus a sink, stove, and refrigerator. At only 27ft, it is small enough to be trailered but is ideally suited to Lake Tahoe and its rough waters.

    Founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1875 and later relocated to Sandusky, Ohio, the Lyman Boat Works is known for building wooden, lapstrake “Clinker-Built” boats with legendary craftsmanship, unsurpassable utility, and steadfast seaworthiness in rough Lake Erie waters.

    Lyman is one of the few truly great names in American boat building. Lyman Boats quickly established a regional reputation for quality lapstrake boats. The company expanded its model offerings and helped establish the “utility boat” as a favorite among the boating public. Following World War II, Lyman production expanded to more than 4,000 boats a year, giving thousands of Americans years of enjoyment at the helm of a Lyman.

    This 1965 Lyman was fully restored in 2011/2012 by the famous Lyman restores Androscoggin Wooden Boat Works in Wayne, Maine.

    1938 Chris Craft 25ft Clipper Cruiser.

    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 $49,500.

    1960 Century 19ft Resorter

    $19,500.00

    This is a 1960 Century 19ft Resorter.

    The 19ft Resorter is an excellent boat, but most people can’t get past the unusual square nose. After this boat suffered some damage to the bow, the owner decided to rebuild the bow with a proper pointed nose. The repair changed the look of the boat and made it more desirable.

    Sierra Boat has maintenance records and has performed the work done on this boat. The deck varnish is in excellent condition and the hull sides and transom are in good condition. The upholstery, engine box and dash gauges were all new in 1998. The boat was last used in 2003 so it had very little use after the work was done. The boat is powered by a Ford Interceptor motor with 250 hp. Sierra Boat fiberglassed the bottom which had some minor repairs done to it in 1999. The fiberglass bottom is solid and is in good shape but will need some repairs before going back into the water.

    This Century Resorter is the perfect family ski boat with the built-in ladder on the transom or a great first wooden boat! Price reduced to sell!
