21 Feet 1955 Chris Craft Cobra
This 1955 Chris-Craft 21’ Black Cobra is perhaps the first-and-only true vintage Hot Rod boat in the classic-boating hobby. This boat is believed to come about as a collaboration between Jim Street and his friend, George Barris. Prior to Street’s passing in 2017, he was known as the only original Cobra owner left, having purchased the boat new in 1955 at the age of 21. Street special-ordered Hull No. BR-21-010 custom from Chris-Craft through his local dealer. Since even the top-option Cadillac V-8 was not powerful enough for Street, he ordered the boat without an engine. This enabled him to install a Henry Meyer-built Cadillac V-8. He took delivery in February 1955. Soon after, a blower was installed to make the boat even faster. The hull modifications included painting the hull sides and iconic fin gloss black, blonde-stained covering boards, eight Buick porthole ventilators and quad exhaust tips. The Interior featured an array of added instruments, a port-side dash and a Batmobile-style twin-grip yoke steering control. This is the boat seen in the iconic "Beach Photo" staged with the Golden Sahara and was the featured attraction at the 2nd annual Bakersfield Motor and Boat Show in 1959 alongside the Golden Sahara II. In the more recent years the boat has had the bottom refastened, interior redone and a new wiring harness installed. We also had the super charger rebuilt and the engine gone through. We are trying to preserve the history Jim Street has created with this boat. Included in the sale is the trailer seen in the pictures.

Each was equipped with twin 105 hp KL's (except for one). Each of the six boats have two hull cards, one from the Holland factory, indicting the boats were "to be completed by factory at Algonac", and another from Algonac, where very special modifications and equipment were installed. Each boat received a shock-absorber dampened front seat, said to have been supplied by a friend of Bernard Smith, who manufactured them for the U.S. Army, as used in tanks. Rumor had it the seat did its' job so well, the Smith's thought owners would beat the bottoms out of their boats if they made it an option! Each boat also received the optional aft seat, with a live well under the starboard 2/3 of the seat, and a cooler under the port 1/3. Each boat had an aft steering tiller installed, and a pre-war single pane folding windshield (except for one), and a fish pole locker with locking door.

The history of finding the boat and launching it are must reads from articles in the Brass Bell. They will detail the story completely. Under my ownership the boat was always in the water in a covered boathouse on Torch Lake , Michigan and stored on the custom bunk trailer fabricated for maximum hull support in the winters in a new insulated Pole Barn with no supplemental heat. It has been stripped of hardware and varnished every 3 years and professionally winterized with spring service on tune up, fluids and water test trial each year.

33 Feet 1921 Robert Yandt Gentleman's Racer
Greyhound was built on the site of the present day Coeur d'Alene resort Hotel in 1921 by Robert Yandt for RC Dillingham of Spokane who owned a summer home across the lake in Casco Bay. Mr. Yandt was well known in the area for building fast speed boats and had been building boats since about 1910. This boat was built to a John L Hacker design and powered by 1041 CID 6cyl Sterling dolphin engine of 225hp. Lightly built of cypress, oak & mahogany she was capable of speeds close to 40mph and in the early 1920's was one of the fastest boats on Lk. Coeur d'Alene. She was the champion on the lake 1921-22. She not only raced, but was also used by the Dillinghams as a family runabout for many years. In 1940 they decided to have "Greyhound" remodeled to a more contemporary configuration. The work was done by Robert Yandt and his nephew Paul Yandt. The boat was made into a 4 cockpit mahogany runabout with forward steering & windshield. In the early 1950's Robert Yandt Jr. purchased "Greyhound" from the family after Mr. Dillinghams death and used as a water taxi on the Lake for many years. After Robert sold her, she eventually came to rest blocked up in a field where she weathered for many years. In 1989 Keith Williams purchased "Greyhound" and had her moved his home in Wenatchee,WA. Being a historian, he gathered up as much information as he could on the boat, including photos. He always dreamed of bringing her back to life, but beyond building a fine garage to protect her, he was not sure where to start on such a major project. In 1998 Keith gave "Greyhound" to Alan Thomle, owner of Alan Thomle Boat Works of Stanwood, WA under the agreement that she would be preserved and eventually restored to her original splendor. With the help of friends, work began in Oct. 2007 and was completed Sept.2008. The boat was completely rebuilt to her original configuration and has been used and shown extensively in the NW and has won many awards in all of the last ten years. The modern power makes this boat very usable and it is a very smooth & solid ride. We have used it on all the big lakes in the NW and I can honestly say its the best boat I have ever used in my 62 years of boating. Take this boat into it's 100th by bringing it to the 2020 ACBS International Boat Show in Coeur d'Alene , Idaho.

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.

Every single detail truly was addressed and well documented, from remanufacturing missing parts, rechroming all original hardware, custom upholstery, electrical, fuel systems.

77 Feet 1941 Elco PT-Boat
Of the nearly 400 small, fast, versatile wooden Patrol Torpedo boats which were built around WWII, only a handful survive to this day. PT 48 is the only remaining 77' Elco PT Boat and a member of the heroic WWII "Mosquito Fleet". With its stylish look, cold molded cabins, reverse S bend stem, it was one of the first successful ELCO designs. PT 48 has arguably spent more time in the combat zone than any other PT Boat in existence from October 11, 1942 to August 7, 1944 and is officially credited with sinking IJN TERUZUKI. A combat highlight, while on patrol with PT 109 (led by John F. Kennedy), PT 48 was damaged by high seas and rescued by PT 109 and the use of a hand pump. The rich battle record of PT 48 is an intrinsic part of US history. Early after her 1941 launch and shortly after Pearl Harbor, PT 48 aggressively attacked enemy vessels in the Solomon Islands, Guadalcanal and Funuati. This vessel is not currently running and is a great restoration candidate.
28 Feet 1966 Riva Super Aquarama
Essentially a new Riva Super Aquarama with a full restoration completed in 2005 by RAM in Sarnico, Italy. All wood is new but for a few frames and tow boards and was the most extensive restoration they have ever done. The sides were completely replaced with new triple lamination. Even the seat frames were rebuilt. In short, nothing was left untouched. The boat now has 454 blocks with Holly Pro-Jection fuel injection and we estimate the engines produce over 400 HP each. We saw 55 MPH on the GPS last summer at 6,200 elevation making it the fastest Riva we have seen. The engines could be changed back to the original carbureted version with a simple change of an intake manifold and carburetor. The boat is offered complete with a DHM custom trailer and a full mooring. They do not get any nicer than this one.
26 Feet 2000 Cutts & Case Picinic Boat
This is a magnificent boat that has been built with attention to detail. This vessel has a beautiful design with clean lines and admirable performance. Cutts’ boats are hand-crafted, which gives each vessel the individuality that sets them apart from the rest. There's a minimum of 20,000 man-hours dedicated to every boat they build. The pattern of the boards is a linear mosaic under a glass-like gleam of varnish. Hand-carved details, unique to each vessel, are etched into the upper hull. That kind of craftsmanship takes time; a Cutts boat takes an average of 4 years to construct. The Cutts patented method of boat building features veining grooves, Kevlar cording, a double-planked skin and epoxy-saturated cording.
