The Chris_Craft 20ft Custom Runabout succeeded the pre-war 19ft Custom Runabout or Barrel Back. Only 369 hulls were produced between 1946 and 1949. This is hull number 334, was built in the final year. It was among the first post-war runabouts to showcase the distinctive blond decking. During their heyday, these boats were known for their luxuriousness, featuring genuine leather upholstery and a sturdy 4-piece folding windshield. The current owner acquired this boat in 2010 and began restoration work in 2011. A new upholstery was installed, while the bottom, although in good condition, underwent sanding, tightening of fasteners, recaulking of seams, and a fresh coat of bottom paint. The boat's bottom swells tightly. Additionally, a new chine plank was added on the starboard side. The topside finish was stripped and meticulously redone with 12 coats of varnish. The bilge was thoroughly cleaned and repainted. The correct Iva Lite spotlight was installed, and all chrome accents were re-chromed, buffed, and reinstalled. All the original factory hardware, including the fold-down windshield, is included with the boat. In 2006, the engine was replaced with a small block 350 V8. The fuel tank and lines were also replaced at that time. In the spring of 2021, routine maintenance was performed, including rebuilding the carburetor, installing a new water pump impeller, fitting new spark plugs, and replacing the throttle cable. In the spring of 2023, the bottom was repainted. The boat comes complete with a custom cover and a custom tandem axle trailer. Due to their rarity, few of these boats remain in existence. With its ideal 20-foot size, the 20' Custom Runabout is a perfect runabout, and this one is ready to be enjoyed!
