1929 Chris Craft 38ft Custom Commuter.
The Custom Commuter was Chris Craft’s first cruiser type boat. The Commuter name comes from the use of this type of boat to “commute” from Long Island sound to Manhattan. At the time the only boats available were custom built boats and Chris Craft saw an opportunity to build a production boat to fill the demand. 65 examples were built from hull no. 5001 to no. 5065, most of them built in 1929 before the depression killed the demand. Dat-So-La-Lee is number 15 in the series.
This 1929 Chris Craft 38ft Custom Commuter was fully restored in 1991 and has received additional work in later years. Most notably, the bottom was fully replaced with the 5200 style bottom. The engine was changed out to a modern Mercruiser 496, giving the power needed in Lake Tahoe’s altitude. The boat comes with a fully re-built Chris Craft A-120, which was the original engine used before the restoration, but is not the original engine to the boat. The original engines in 1929 were the A-70 engine of a similar design.
The boat is very original and still has the correct head with a pull-down pull man style sink. The main modification was the conversion of double bunks to a table and benches. Otherwise, every attempt was made to retain originality throughout using the original factory drawings as a guide.

1975 Pedrazzini 28ft Super Aquamar – SOLD$250,000.00
This is a 1975 Pedrazzini 28ft Super Aquamar made in Switzerland.
While Riva may be the Mercedes Benz of classic boats, Pedrazzini is the exclusive Bentley/Rolls Royce of the class. In fact, the Chairmen of Porsche/Audi/Bentley captains a Pedrazzini Special identical to this one that is available.
Here is some information from Pedrazzini’s website.
Pedrazzini runabouts: crafted from the most exquisite materials with great skill and extreme patience.
Pedrazzini has been committed to the art of boat building for over 100 years. As in the good old days, the company’s mahogany runabouts are crafted by hand. Step by step, the individual elements are meticulously finished and assembled. It can take up to nine months to complete a single runabout. Each boat that leaves the yard reflects Pedrazzini’s dedication to quality, attention to detail, and flair for timelessly elegant styling.
The Super Aquamar is similar to the more famous Riva Aquarama. Sierra Boat has done significant refurbishing on this boat. We recently re-powered the boat with fuel injected 5.7 L Mercruiser engines. This is a great boat for Lake Tahoe and easily handles Tahoe’s rough water.
