This example was restored to the highest of standards by a restoration shop back East. It came to Lake Tahoe in 2009 where it has been stored and service by Sierra Boat.

    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.

    1934 Chris Craft 27ft Custom Runabout – SOLD

    $75,000.00

    1934 Chris Craft 27ft Custom Runabout

    This 1934 Chris-Craft runabout is a Custom 309 model that features a 27′ mahogany hull with triple cockpits. From 1932 to 1941, Chris Craft made only 62 27’ Custom Runabouts. This Chris Craft, named Star Dust, was originally purchased in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and was brought to Lake Tahoe by Fred Kehlet later in the 1930s. Kehlet used it for public rides from his family’s maritime operation at Meeks Bay Resort. The vessel was later acquired by John Wickland III, and it earned Best of Show at the 1992 Tahoe Yacht Club’s Concours d’Elegance. Western Runabouts refurbished the exterior in 2003, and the boat earned a score of 84 at that year’s Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance. Star Dust was donated in 2004 to the Tahoe Maritime Museum and served as their summer ride boat for museum members and the public. A Crusader 6.0-liter V8 and forward/reverse transmission were installed in 2012, though the original A-120 V8 engine is included in the sale.

    The planing hull and curved deck feature seam-and-batten mahogany construction over white oak framing. The boat measures 27′ long and 7′ 2″ wide and has a 28″ draft. Polished chrome deck hardware includes the cutwater, chocks, cleats, engine compartment vents, and navigation lights.

    The foredeck and quarterdeck are natural varnished mahogany, and the king planks and coverboard are stained walnut. In 2003 Western Runabouts sanded, repaired, and varnished the hull and deck.

    The triple cockpit layout features three separate seating areas, each equipped with tan vinyl benches and planked soles covered in black rubber mats. A single-pane, tempered-glass windscreen shields the driver and features a hinged frame and wind wings. The forward and aft cockpit soles are removable for access to their respective bilges.

    A banjo steering wheel is mounted on the starboard side of the foremost cockpit and is equipped with a center throttle lever. A forward/reverse shifter extends from the floorboard. An instrument cluster for the Crusader engine has been added under the dashboard and includes a 6k-rpm tachometer and gauges for oil pressure, temperature, and voltage. Period instrumentation is retained in the dash fascia but is not functional at this time.

    A fuel-injected, GM-based Crusader 6.0-liter V8 was installed in 2012 by Allen’s Marine Engines of Saratoga, California, along with a ZF 63A transmission. The replacement engine was rated for 375 horsepower and is fueled by twin 30-gallon tanks in the stern. When the boat was last used in the summer of 2019 a coolant leak was noted with the recommendation of replacing the thermostat gasket and exhaust manifolds.

    The removed 825ci (13.5 liters) Chris-Craft A-120 V8 is included in the sale. It is 543 of 605 A-120s made and has been modified with a 12-volt Delcotron alternator. The engine received a compression test in 2021 which showed low compression in one cylinder so an engine rebuild would be needed if a buyer decided to switch back to the original engine. The factory wiring, instrumentation, and linkages are said to remain fitted so that the next owner can reinstall the original engine if so desired.

    The bottom is a 30-year-old epoxy bottom that is showing her age. The boat was last in the water in September of 2019. The bottom has dried out in storage and seams have opened up. A bottom replacement should be factored in for any potential buyer.

    This boat comes on a steel, tandem-axle Zieman trailer that is painted black and features side steps, carpeted beds, 15″ wheels, and a Dutton-Lainson hand winch. The boat is protected by a custom waterline cover and comes with an anchor, lines, lifejackets, and a boarding ladder.

    1936 Gar Wood 22ft Triple Cockpit

    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 1936 Gar Wood 22ft is powered by an upgraded Crusader Marine 350 with 325 hp which greatly outperforms the original 1936 six cylinder Chrysler Crown engine. This boat has only been used in fresh water only. It features a “no-soak” West System bottom. This Gar Wood was professionally restored by a well-known West Coast restorer and has had very little use after the restoration.

    This 1936 Gar Wood comes on a 1995 Ryan Trailers dual axle trailer and is protected by a custom full waterline cover.

    The Hacker Boat Company, Inc. is the world’s largest builder of classic mahogany motorboats. Hacker-Craft’s are considered one of the most authentic American-made brands. Master craftsmen build the wooden boats using the benchmark process and hand-built quality standards to perfectly balance luxury and utility while providing optimum comfort and performance, even in the harshest conditions.

    These modern Hacker-Crafts are built using 1930’s designed but updated for modern use. While the designed from the 30’s would have been triple or twin cockpits, this updated design has an enlarged U-shaped seating arrangement. It provides a more sociable seating configuration and allows for easier movement around the boat. Theses modern Hacker-Crafts feature all glued construction, so you do not get the plank movement inherent with older boats which means less maintenance.

    This 2000 Hacker-Craft was bought new and shipped to Sierra Boat where is has been stored and maintained. The power comes from twin Marine Power 5.7 fuel injected 350’s with 300 hp each. The boat has only been in Lake Tahoe’s fresh water and has 440.7 engine hours. Featured on this Hacker-Craft is a Clarion Marine stereo system, battery charging system, custom light weight cover with deck pads for protection, and much more. This boat comes on a 1998 Loadmaster dual axle trailer for easy transportation.

    1937 Gar Wood 25ft Triple Cockpit.

    In 1937 Gar Wood built 267 boats, about 100 more than any other year in the 1930s. Midnight Thunder, formerly Triple Time, is one of only nine 25ft runabouts built in 1937, and one of only three 25-footers equipped with the largest engine option, the Scripps 302 V-12. The favored formula for making speedboats go fast in the 1920s and ’30s included a large displacement and low rpm power plant spinning a large propeller. The Scripps V-12 engine, model 302, original to this boat, is no exception to that formula. With a cylinder bore of 4.25 inches and a stroke of 5.25 inches, the displacement totals 894 cubic inches. The engine was said to produce 316 hp at 2,600 rpm.

    Midnight Thunder is in excellent condition. From the original Scripps V-12 engine to the period correct original pattern and color leather upholstery. A restoration was completed from 2002-2003 with wood work by Armstrong Boat Works, of Skaneateles, New York, and the engine restoration was completed by noted Scripps specialist George Shinn. The entire bottom of the boat was replaced at this time, including keel, chines, frames, and bottom planking, following Gar Wood specifications. In order to insure reliability and durability, the Scripps engine and transmission were tuned by the experts at Freedom Engine Service in the summer of 2010.

    This boat then arrived at Sierra Boat in January of 2013 and has been stored and serviced here ever since. The boat was inspected by Sierra Boat from stem to stern for the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elgance Boat Show judging. From that inspection a few items were address for the shows with the largest item being new flooring. The engine was set up and tuned for Lake Tahoe’s high-altitude boating and a custom full waterline cover was made. In 2014 the boat was fully restored including deck, hull sides and transom. At this time the name was changed from “Triple Time” to “Midnight Thunder” in gold leaf. Miscellaneous mechanical items from the judging sheet were addressed as well.

    At the Concours d’Elgance Boat Show in Lake Tahoe, this 1937 Gar Wood 25ft Triple Cockpit won 2014 Best Gar Wood of Show, 2014 Best of Show Over 23ft, 2017 Best in Show, and 2017 Best Engine.

    Fully researched and restored to the highest level, every detail of this boat is believed to be as correct as possible.

One of their attributes is an exceptional ride which can be very important on rough Lake Tahoe days. It features a west system bottom and leather upholstery. The Scripps 152 is correct for the boat but may not be original. It comes on a fitted tandem axle trailer. This boat is turn key and a must see!

    1941 Gar Wood 25’6” Triple Cockpit Custom Runabout

    $250,000.00

    1941 Gar Wood 25’6” Triple Cockpit Custom Runabout

    $250,000.00

    This is a very rare 1941 Gar Wood 25’6’’ Triple Cockpit Custom Runabout.

    Only 35 25-foot Custom Runabouts were ever built by Gar Wood during its 10-year production run from 1932-41. A mere sixteen are known to exist today. Considered by most to be the pinnacle of Gar Wood design, the 1941 models had the most bow flare, the barreled-cutwater design, high-crowned decks and the aft-raked transom, which added 6 inches of length and completed the radical streamlining of the 1941 lineup.

    One of only two 25-foot 6-inch hulls built—both for 1941—it is the last of only five with the huge 316 HP, 894 CI Scripps model 302 V-12 engine. This engine was the top-of-the-line option for the 25-footers, and it pushed the boats to 50 MPH, making it what Gar Wood claimed to be the fastest stock runabout available at the time. It’s price when new in 1941 was a staggering $7,550.

    The 1941 Gar Wood 25-foot 6-inch Custom Runabout featured rich heavy-grained pleated burgundy leather upholstery throughout, with comfortable seating for eight to 10 adult passengers. An abundance of the most beautiful streamlined chromed-brass hardware—which was a Gar Wood trademark—helped make the big, triple–cockpit Gar Woods the boat to own on Lake Tahoe. Though “Hae Dae III”—the name given to the boat by its original owner Herbert Day—was actually delivered new to Newport Beach, California, just after New Years in January 1941, by that summer, it was home at Tahoe, where it was raced in several of the Tahoe Yacht Club events. It won first place in the “Bang and Go Back” race and third place in the Lake Championship Free-For-All Race in both July and August 1941. Hae Dae III was the last 25’6’’ Custom Runabout shipped by Gar Wood.

    Hae Dae III has only had four owners in its lifetime on Lake Tahoe. Tony Brown of Western Runabouts completed a significant preservation restoration in 2002. It has been awarded “Best Gar Wood of Show” at the prestigious Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance twice, in 2002 and 2004.

    With a history stretching over a hundred years, the Hacker Boat Company, http://www.hackerboat.com, continues to craft the world’s finest mahogany boats. Hacker-Craft boats are hand built in America with some of the world’s finest mahoganies and materials available. Keeping the look of an early Hacker-Craft above the waterline, dramatic improvements have been made throughout, thanks to improved modern boat building techniques and materials.

    This 1991 Hacker-Craft is powered by Twin V8 Chevy 350 small blocks. In 2017, both engines were removed from the boat to allow for a thorough clean and painting of the engine bay. They were stripped of all ancillary parts to allow for degreasing, cleaning and prepping for spraying. The engines were primed and sprayed with two coats of top coat. All ancillary parts were then re-fitted or replaced as necessary. New Holley Marine 4 Barrel carburetors were installed. Both engines underwent a full service and have been tested.

    In October of 2017, this Hacker-Craft received refinish work. The deck and topsides were stripped and have new stain and fresh varnish. The bottom was re-painted with 2 coats of anti-fouling paint. The dash panel was re-sprayed as well. This boat is currently in excellent condition.

    1998 Hacker-Craft 24 Triple Cockpit Runabout.

    This Hacker-Craft was built at the Hacker-Craft factory at Lake George, New York. In the Late 80’s, Bill Morgan of Silver Bay, NY, resurrected the historic Hacker name and began to build new Hacker-Crafts based on the original designs from the 30’s. These are not your granddads boats as these modern Hacker-Crafts feature wood epoxy construction. These boats will go in the water leak free due to the multiple lamination of plywood and solid mahogany with marine epoxy flues. The hull sides as well as the decks receive the same robust construction. Plank movement is virtually reduced, lowering maintenance costs.

    The current owner purchased this boat in August of 2006 from Sierra Boat’s Brokerage. The boat resided for many years at Lake Tahoe and is currently about 70 miles west of Tahoe in Grass Valley, CA. During the time it has been in Grass Valley, it has been stored in an insulated climate-controlled room.

    The power comes from a very reliable fuel injected 454 Crusader engine with 350 hp. The transmission is a Borg Warner velvet-drive. The owner states that there has been little use from the time of purchase in 2006.

    The boat is equipped with a 50-gallon fuel tank, two 12V battery system, a “Sea-Fire” automatic Halon 1301 fire extinguisher system, a custom-made cover with insulating deck pads and much more. The boat sits on a double axle surge brake trailer made by Sierra Custom Trailers in Corinth, New York. The trailer is in very good condition with new tires purchased 2018.

    Recent cosmetic work and inspection was performed in 2018 by renown wood boat restorer Curtis Bauman in Grass Valley.  The bottom is in very good condition and the finish is close to showroom condition.

    Hacker-Crafts are known for a very comfortable ride, even in rough waters. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to own a Hacker-Craft at the fraction of the cost of a new one!

  1. Hey Mac . Congratulations.
    I would like more info on Chris craft if you get a chance .Also are there any Chris Craft boat shows coming soon

  2. I have a 22.6′ boat. What is your fees for Winter Boat Storage? What days does it cover? What additional fees are there (e.g. winterizing/summerizing)? Do you have availability for winter 2021-22? If not, the following year?

  3. Hello, My name is Michael Aberle and I have a 1962 Chris Craft Holiday 20ft. The boat is in good condition and I have some motor work done this last year, but I would like to see what the cost would be to have you complete the restoration. I have her in California now. Could we sort up a zoom or FaceTime call to review the boat and get an estimate.
