1940 Chris Craft 19ft Custom Runabout “Barrel Back”

by

$95,000.00

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.

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!
