This model is also known in the Chris-Craft record books as a “Special Runabout.” The boat was bought in northern Michigan in the summer of 2016 and was in need of restoration. A complete restoration was conducted over the next three years from 2017-2019. This Rocket is wearing its atomic blue hull paint replicated from the original color. Due to the wood shortages following WWII, as well as the increase in demand of power boats in order for Chris Craft to fill orders, some boats were made from white cedar not mahogany. This model being the only Chris Craft boat made completely out of white cedar, varnishing does not have a similar appearance to mahogany. Leaving a few examples of this model to be painted in the only paint available in the Chris Craft Factory, “atomic blue,” or Chris Craft engine paint. Estimated to be one of 40 hulls originally painted in this color “atomic blue.” This Chris Craft is currently in heated winter storage and available for viewing and testing (weather permitting).
