1940 17’ CHRIS-CRAFT DELUXE RUNABOUT “BARREL BACK”
1940 17ft. Chris Craft Deluxe Runabout, delivered to Seattle Washington in July of 1940., Chris Craft built only 425 17ft. Deluxe Runabouts between 1940 to 1942. This boat is the 132nd out of the 425.
Commonly referred to as a “Barrel Back”, because the boat’s semi-circle transom looks like a floating barrel in the water when viewed from the stern. The boat was built using the finest Philippine mahogany and the graceful lines have made the “Barrel Back” a much-desired Chris Craft model for generations of wooden boat enthusiasts.
The boat was refurbished in 2015 with a rebuilt 95hp Model K Hercules engine along with a new fiberglass bottom, new pigskin color upholstery, sides refastened with new stain and varnish on all wood. The boat has the original 6v electrical system, a refurbished fuel tank and all chrome hardware is in excellent condition. The engine currently has about
150 to 200 hours on it since the rebuild. All gauges are correct and working, there is a working fire extinguisher and a period correct extinguisher. Life jackets, dock lines and a full custom-made cover are included.
We purchased the boat 19 years ago in 2004 and have always kept the boat at Lake Tahoe. To our knowledge, the boat has had two previous owners on Lake Tahoe, since it was moved from Seattle.
