1947 20′ Chris Craft Custom 20


1947 Chris Craft Custom Runabout        20′     $39,900 SOLD!

Rare and eminently collectable! The 20′ Chris-Craft Custom Runabout was the grandest of the Post WWII Chris-Craft runabouts. Just 366 were built from 1946 to 1949 with probably less than a quarter of those remaining anywhere – in any condition! Proving too expensive to build, it was replaced by the Riviera series – though somewhat similar in look, it lacked the “bubble transom”, streamlined hardware and other design refinements that makes the Custom 20 the rarest and most collectable Chris-Craft of this period!

One of the finest in the Country, this one is the product of a multi year restoration and there is no better one out there! A 2008 custom built tandem axle trailer is included with this show winner. The engine is the  283 Chris Craft.  It was completely rebuilt and blueprinted in 2008. All new bearings, pistons, custom cam shaft, valves and heads, electronic ignition, and spin-on oil filter, new water pump impellers. New oil pump. New freeze plugs. Specifications and clearances are available.   Transmission seals have been replaced. Cutlass bearing was replaced. It has two batteries and two bilge pumps. Electrical wiring harness was completely replaced. Instruments were rebuilt as required. All of the chrome was stripped, polished and replated. Interior was completely reupholstered. Boat has over 22 coats of varnish. Transom lettering is painted and gold-leafed. Brand new (2008) custom made aluminum trailer with stainless steel fasteners and four wheel disc brakes. Fold down windshield glass is new as well.

Make no mistake however, this is a boat meant to be used!
