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. 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.
