    1950 Chris Craft 23ft Holiday – SOLD


    1950 Chris Craft 23ft Holiday – SOLD


    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!

  • 1954 Chris Craft 24ft Holiday


    1954 Chris Craft 24ft Holiday


    1954 Chris Craft 24ft Holiday.

    The large Holiday series started out at 23′. In 1954 they reversed the rake of the transom and gained another foot of length giving the model more interior space. The Holiday was the more upscale model to the basic 22′ Sportsman. It features two toned red and blond stained mahogany and a steeply raked windshield. The interior has plush, deeply upholstered seats and teak flooring. The middle seat was standard for this model. These were the first of the Chris Craft runabouts to feature the “clipper bow” or ‘bullnose” styling to the stem. This feature was adopted for all models in the 1955 model year. While some might confuse this model with the later Continental series, they are a very different boat in all regards. In our experience, they handle and ride much better due to a narrower bottom.

    This example has had extensive restoration work done. Sierra Boat completed the restoration, started by another shop, and has fully sorted the boat out. The bottom is a 5200 type, with no leaks. The engine is a 175 HP Chris Craft MCL model, overhauled in 2013, which is a later version of the original 158 HP MBL. It has more horsepower and 12-volt electrics.

    The boat has been shown at the Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance where she garnered a 2nd place in class.

    This is a perfect boat for Tahoe with seating for 9 people and the size to handle Tahoe’s rough water.

    It comes with extensive equipment including a new waterline cover and a custom built tandem axle trailer.
