Only 65 of the 38 Foot Custom Commuters were made by Chris Craft during the time period from 1929 through to 1933. Of those only a handful remain to this day and they are desired and revered. This particular boat has been in the same ownership for 31 years and has been carefully stored and cared for during that time. The boat has surveyed out very well in the past and expect it to be just as sound now for the new owners inspection. The structure of the wood is sound, the chrome and upholstery are in excellent condition and the varnish is bright and shiny. The boat is powered by a 8.1 Litre Mercruiser engine pushing out 496 HP which powers the boat nicely. This is an exceptional boat looking for a new Captain and it will be a "statement" boat to your collection. This rare Commuter was brought from Eastern Canada by Dick Clark, manager of Sierra Boat Company, Lake Tahoe, California in 1988. Mr. Clark then contacted a lover of old wooden boats and home owner at Lake Tahoe. As Clark expected, it was love at first sight. Earlier the boat had been used as a fishing boat but the owner carefully packaged and stored every piece of hardware which was original to the boat so it could transition back to a luxury commuter. The new owner bought the boat from where it was totally re-built for cruising Lake Tahoe and it has since been maintained ever since in first rate condition.
