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.
