    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.

    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 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.

    1942 Chris Craft 17ft Deluxe Runabout “Barrel Back”

    From 1940 to 1942, Chris Craft only produced 425 17ft Chris Craft Deluxe Runabouts or better know as “Barrel Back” runabouts. The iconic “Barrel Back” name comes from the almost perfect semi-circle transom that looks from the rear like a floating barrel when it is in the water.  Beautifully appointed, these mahogany-hulled runabouts were built to the highest standards and the graceful lines made them popular with generations of collectors and wooden boat enthusiasts.

    This 1942 Chris Craft 17ft Deluxe Runabout was found in LA where it was used on fresh water lakes in that area. The original restoration was completed in 2001 and later the boat received new coats of varnish and mirror work at Northwest Classic Boats in Grass Valley, CA.

    This boat features a no-soak west system bottom for easy use. It is powered by an upgraded Chris Craft KL engine with 121 hp which helps it move along at Lake Tahoe’s high altitude. There is no engine hour meter, but the seller has stated that the engine has less than 200 hours on it. The boat has its original 6V electrical system.

    This “Barrel Back” has been featured in magazines and books as well as been shown at Nationals, Wood & Glory, and Lake Tahoe’s Concours d’Elegance a number of times where it won third place in the “user” class. Always lovingly cared for by the seller in its custom built, insulated, ventilated, concrete floored boat barn.

    The boat comes on a 1991 DHL tandem axle trailer with new tires and bearings. This “Barrel Back” at 17ft allows for easy storage and trailering.

    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.

    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!

    1964 Century 17ft Ski Dart “Tweeter”

    The Century Ski Dart ski boat was the prototype of the Ski Nautique and MasterCraft’s flat hull ski boat design. In 1964 they made only 60 Ski Darts with this being the 44th boat they built that year. The 180 hp Ford Interceptor V8 engine sends the boat thru the water at about 35 mph making it an excellent ski boat. The boat is 17’3’’ in length with a 6’11’’ wide beam and a center engine housing making it easy to walk around or to store a ski or swim ladder.

    The sellers of this 1964 Century 17ft Ski Dart are the second owners. They purchased the boat in May of 1974 from the original owners who named the boat “Tweeter” after their last name, Birdsong. The boat has never been off Lake Tahoe and has been meticulously maintained and stored at Sierra Boat Co. since 1974. Sierra Boat has all records of work done to this boat.

    Tweeter received a second-place trophy at the 2018 Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance and it has been said to be the only Century Ski Dart on Lake Tahoe!

    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. Androscoggin Wooden Boat Works specializes in the restorations of Lyman’s so this boat was restored properly with no details overlooked, http://www.androscogginboatworks.com/. All records from the restoration have been saved showing the complete refinish restoration as well as the install of a new PCM 5.7L HO 303 fuel injected engine with 330 hp. The records also show extras such as a custom covers, top rear and side curtains, gold leaf name, dual battery system, etc. The seller has over $75k in the restoration which the condition of the boat reflects.

    This is a prefect turnkey Lake Tahoe boat that can handle the rough waters and the high-altitude sun!

    1969 Bertram 20ft “The Red Baron”

    This is the smallest in the Baron line of race boats. The Bertram name carries a great reputation in classic as well as modern boats as they are very well-built boats. This one in particular is one of a run of only of 20 or so in 1969.  In the mid 60’s racing was popular and boat builders were looking to dominate certain classes of boat lengths. This was a tried and true hull in the early 60’s known as the Mopie fishing vessel. It had great hull lift due to the heavy interior and overall construction.

    Sammy James was the heavy hitter in Bertram Racing at the time and the current seller of the boat tracked him down in Florida some years ago. He asked him if he was familiar with the boat and Sammy James said “Familiar???? Hell son, I built them. You mean there are still some left?  That’s great.” Sammy James then filled the seller in on the boat. They basically stripped the Mopie and built this custom deck for the boat to go racing. The boat was a really great performer up to about 60 MPH and then it got a little sketchy. They lost about ½ the boats in testing and regrouped, sold the remaining boats (repowered with less power to control hull speed) and sold them off to recoup some funds for the next boat to test. They were powered with Holman-Moody engines and had Volvo outdrives of the period.

    This boat was purchased in New York by Dick Clarke of Sierra Boat Company about 45 years ago and sat in the warehouse until Tony Brown of wood boat restoration fame bought it and it sat some more. The current owner bought it and proceeded to do a period correct refurb on it. It is not representing a restoration as there are original pieces that were not serviced or restored and the seller did take some liberties that are correct but upgraded.  He installed a period correct Volvo outdrive with outboard trim rams which is rare. He also built a Holman-Moody Ford 351 Windsor engine as this was for altitude.  It does 45 on GPS at Tahoe’s 6300’ elevation.  The boat comes on a custom trailer that was fit to the boat.

    The seller has all the receipts since he bought it. This is truly a great collector’s boat that can be enjoyed and then restored with room for future profit on a sale.
