    1939 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout

    $109,500.00

    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.

    1940 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout Barrel Back.

    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 1940 Custom Barrel Back was fully restored and is in excellent condition. It features the two-piece coverboards and the fold down Bugatti style windshields as used in 1939 and 1940.

    This 1940 Chris Craft has a west system bottom for “no soaking” usability. Power is by a Chris Craft M engine with 130 hp that was rebuilt in 2016 by Sierra Boat. The rebuilt engine has extremely low hours on it.  The deck and hull sides were fully restored in the winter of 2016/2017 by Sierra Boat as well.

    The boat comes on a 2014 Concept Customs dual axle trailer that is like new. This 1940 Chris Craft is protected by a custom waterline sunbrella cover that was made in 2016.

    Don’t miss out on one of the most iconic boats of all time!

    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 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. In 2015 the boat received a brand-new Sierra Boat Co. membrane bottom. The membrane bottom performs and appears like a traditional bottom but requires no soaking. 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.

    This Gar Wood has been stored and service by Sierra Boat Co. with all the records for many years!

    1949 Chris Craft 20ft Custom.

    The Chris Craft 20ft Custom Runabout was the successor to the pre-war 19ft Custom Runabout or Barrel Back. Only 369 hulls were built from 1946 to 1949. This is hull number 338, built in the final year. They were the first of the post war runabouts to feature the blond decking. Expensive and plush in their day, they featured genuine leather upholstery and a substantial 4 piece folding windshield.

    This example has been restored to the highest standards. It features a 5200 bottom and fully skinned and glued decks and hull sides. It features the top engine option, the Chris Craft MBL at 158 hp. The boat has been fully rewired and has been converted to 12 volt. All details are correct. It has won numerous awards at shows in Oregon and Lake Tahoe. Restorations on this level do not come cheap, so here is an opportunity to buy a ready to go boat for a fraction of the cost of a restoration. It comes on a custom fitted Ryan Trailer.

    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!

    1956 Chris Craft 18ft Continental.

    Since the beginning, Christopher Smith crafted the boats that dreams are made of. Chris-Craft boats became the cultural icons that gave people a new freedom to explore the clear waters of local lakes and distant shores. More than any other brand, Chris Craft was responsible for America’s romance with boats – and ultimately, for redefining boating pleasure for generations of people everywhere.

    This Chris Craft is in good condition. The deck and hull side varnish are in very good condition. The bottom is a cold molded epoxy bottom and is excellent condition. Bilge paint is in good condition. All hardware is present, and chrome is in good condition. Interior is not period correct but is custom and in very good condition. Flooring is not period correct as well but is custom and in good condition. All the restoration work was done at Classic Craft in Sacramento and Fine Line Trim and Upholstery in Rancho Cordova. The seller has put together a impressive binder of all the records of work done to this boat.

    The boat is powered by a Chris Craft 283 that was converted into a 350 with 260 hp in 2010. The engine has 34 hours on it since the rebuild, runs really well and has been tested by Sierra Boat. The boat comes on a 2014 California Trailer Works trailer that is in excellent condition.

    This Chris Craft Continental is ready for a new home!
