16 Feet 1947 Chris-Craft Rocket

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).

17 Feet 1948 Chris Craft Deluxe Runabout

This boat started its life after completion on March 5, 1948 in the Chris Craft factory in Algonac, MI with a delivery to the Kenneth E. Wilson company in Newport Beach, CA. Its refurbishment began in California in early 2003, it was “quick claimed” as an abandoned boat in the LA area outskirts by a retired Doctor George Sweeney. He brought it home and with a few friends, they replanked the bottom and sides (triple planking on bottom, double planking on sides). I believe he worked on it for about 5-6 years out in California and got the hull back into ship-shape applying the West no soak on the hull. Then I believe the boat was purchased by another doctor in Arkansas, moved there and little progress was made thru about 2012 on the boat. In about 2013, the boat was purchased again and moved to Hague, New York area where the restoration was completed. The boat work was done by Chad Dunklee and Walt Peterson (Chad was the manager of boat rebuilding at the Hacker Boat Company at that time). The engine and transmission was rebuilt to a 12V system and unleaded gas operation by Fish Brothers in the Hague New York area while the wood and chrome was refinished. The boat was completed in about 2015 and even entered into the Adirondack Chapter’s 40th Annual Lake George Rendezvous where it received an award. In May of 2016, I purchased the boat and returned it to its birthplace of Michigan, where it was enjoyed by many cruising the Big Crooked Lake in Brighton, MI. Regular service was done, a bilge blower was carefully installed to match existing dash switches, and the boat was re-varnished in early 2019 in the Algonac area by the old craftsmen of the Chris Craft factory there. The seams are tight, the varnish is shiny and the boat is a beautiful piece of art. Overall, it is in immaculate shape and ready for the next owner to care for it long into the future. I have a binder of original documents such as the “build sheet” from 1948, catalogs, and maintenance booklets to pass to the new owner, along with about 200 photographs of the original work done in California in the early 2000’s. Fully restored and Recently refinished, no soak hull, immaculate with trailer

19 Feet 1949 Chris Craft Racing Runabout

In 1948 Chris Craft introduced their 19 Foot Racing Runabout. The boats were built to go fast and had larger engines which produced more speed. The boat was a hit and Chris Craft made a total of 503 of them during the time from 1948 through to 1954. This is a beautiful Chris Craft Racing Runabout - Hull # 229. I have owned the boat since May of 2007. Since obtaining the boat I have had a 5200 Bottom put on the boat by a well known restorer. This boat was purchased from a boat broker in Minnesota, delivered to Idaho and underwent a professional keel-up restoration from Retro Natique in Bear Lake, Idaho over the course of several years. She was used extensively in Jackson Lake and Palisades Lake near Jackson Hole, Wyoming until being moved to Newport Beach, California in 2015. The boat was originally equipped with a KBL 131 HP triple carburetors which is the reason for the chrome bubble on the hatches. The broker in Minnesota re-powered the boat with a Chevy 350. In July of 2019, a new Chevy 350 motor was ordered from JEGS in Columbus, Ohio and shipped to California where is was modified for marine use and professionally installed. The Chevy motor is new, dependable and easy to get parts for. She has been shown at the Lake Arrowhead boat show as well as the Balboa Yacht Club Wooden Boat Festival and always turns heads and attracts a big crowd. She has been stored on a trailer and always covered. The boat comes with all of the lines/ropes, life vests, paddles, and “boat gear” and is a “turn key” boat.In 1948 Chris Craft introduced their 19 foot Racing Runabout and made a total of 503 by the time they stopped production in 1954. This Racing Runabout is Hull # 229. I purchased the boat from Mitch Lapointe in 2007 and had the boat professionally restored - keel up restoration using the finest materials. in 2019 the boat received a brand new Chevy 350 from JEGGS of Columbus, Ohio that was installed by one of the boat mechanics recommended by Antique Boat America. In addition to the new motor, the bottom was professionally re-painted in 2019. The boat has been featured in several boat shows turn heads everywhere. Wicked is a "turn-key" boat and comes with all of the lines, life vests, paddles, and necessary boat gear so you can use the boat immediately and make new and lasting memories.
