1949 Chris Craft 20ft Custom

$72,000.00

1949 Chris Craft 20ft Custom.

The Chris Craft 20ft Custom Runabout was the successor to the pre-war 19ft Custom Runabout or Barrel Back. Only 369 hulls were built from 1946 to 1949. This is hull number 338, built in the final year. They were the first of the post war runabouts to feature the blond decking. Expensive and plush in their day, they featured genuine leather upholstery and a substantial 4 piece folding windshield.

This example has been restored to the highest standards. It features a 5200 bottom and fully skinned and glued decks and hull sides. It features the top engine option, the Chris Craft MBL at 158 hp. The boat has been fully rewired and has been converted to 12 volt. All details are correct. It has won numerous awards at shows in Oregon and Lake Tahoe. Restorations on this level do not come cheap, so here is an opportunity to buy a ready to go boat for a fraction of the cost of a restoration. It comes on a custom fitted Ryan Trailer.
