1948 Chris Craft 20ft Custom

by

$59,500.00

This is a 1948 Chris Craft 20ft Custom Runabout.

The 20ft Custom was the post war continuation of the pre-war 19ft Custom Runabout, better known as the barrel back. The post war boats were more modern in every way, sporting a much roomier and plush cockpit. Extra thick padded bolsters emulate the finest cars of the day. The two-tone red and blond wood stain was the debut for this color combination. The boat is powered by a 158 hp Chris Craft MBL engine which gives this boat respectable performance with 30+ MPH on Lake Tahoe.

Material Girl was fully restored and is in very good to excellent condition. She was restored by well-known restorer Dave Wright and features fully epoxy glued construction and a west-system bottom for leak free use. The upholstery is genuine leather as original. All details are show correct.

This 1948 Chris Craft 20ft comes on a 2011 tandem trailer.

This Boat won the Best Chris Craft Award at the 2011 Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance.
