1949 Chris Craft 20ft Custom – SOLD

by

$45,000.00

1949 Chris Craft 20ft Custom.

The 20ft Custom Runabout is one of the best post war boats that Chris Craft built. They were very high quality and were a continuation of the pre-war 19ft Custom, AKA 19ft Barrel Back. These boats have become one of the most collectible boats on the market.

This 1949 Chris Craft 20ft was delivered in June of 1949 to a dealer in Duluth, Minnesota. Nearly 40 years later, the restorer Don Viehmeyer discovered her in Minnesota in 1986 in very poor condition and restored her in 2000. The current owners purchased “Clementine” in May of that year. Her name originated from the song “Oh My Darling Clementine” because she is, as the lyrics go, a “49’er”.

Clementine was a family boat and a daily user on Lake Tahoe. She is hull #362 of a series of 367 which makes her one of the last manufactured in the series. Clementine has been “Miss May” in a national calendar and has appeared in Classic Boating Magazine.  The boat has earned first and second place awards at the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance. The boat was last refreshed by the crew at Obexer’s Boat Company.

The boat comes on a custom Trailer Plus tandem axle trailer that was fully serviced in the spring of 2019 and is protected by a custom full waterline cover.
