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.

25 Feet 1949 Chris-Craft Sportsman w/ Twins

Rare one of a kind 1949 25' Sportsman with Twin KL engines. This boat has been fully restored from the bottom up. No expense was spared on this boat. All outer planks, bottom, sides, and decks were replaced. Both engines were totally rebuilt. Gauges restored by Clawson instruments, all chrome redone, interior, wiring, and much more. This boat is considered as one of the Family Boats. Six 25' hulls were constructed in the Holland, MI plant, one for each Smith brother, and one each for their attorney, lumber supplier, and one for the Ford family. 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.

26 Feet 1936 Custom Commuter

1936 26’ Custom Commuter found in a boat house on a canal between Ashland St and Gray Haven Island in Detroit bordering Gross Pointe. It was across the canal from DYC Commodore Gar Wood’s mansion. Both properties are across the Detroit River from the Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle. Plenty of boating history in this location. We have the Coast Guard Hull card and the builder’s Coast Guard picture ID. The hull was laid in 1936. Gar Wood made a 1936 26’ Hull in 1935-1936. The hull is very similar to a Gar Wood Hull but the definitive plans were lost. All the bottom, sides and roof structure are original wood including the original the beautiful transom. It is all old growth mahogany. It swells perfectly in 24 hours yearly. The motor is original to the boat and the flat head 8 cylinder runs and powers the boat through the water perfectly. All the inside mahogany is new, the upholstery is new, the cabin top and Headliner is new, all the trim is custom stainless and period fittings are re chromed. 2 new automatic bilge pumps and blower are new for safety. Depth finder and inverter have also been added. All the dash gauges and switches are new and the shifter for the drive is attached to a Velvet Drive for smooth linkage fee operation. A hidden depth finder, stereo and power inverter were added for convenience and enjoyment. The canopy is new sunbrella. This is a one off boat and totally custom. 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. I own multiple collectible rare boats and this one is the show stopper. Contact with the experienced restorer is available.

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.

29.5 Feet 1928 Hacker Craft Company Dolphin Deluxe

1928 29' 6" HACKER CRAFT CO Dolphin Deluxe.There are runabouts, and there are Hackers. No other wooden boat builders have enjoyed over a century of acclaim and accomplishment, as have the American craftsmen at Hacker Boat Company. For generations, Hacker Craft mahogany runabouts have ruled the waterways from Lake Tahoe to Long Island Sound. GAD-A-BOUT is an immaculate, triple-cockpit representation of the gilded era of wooden boats, when massive gas engines were squeezed into luxurious speedboats to thrill the elite - royalty, titans of industry, and Hollywood celebrities - with speed and exhilaration. The sleek mahogany speedsters were introduced into a world of recreational boating that up and to then had been a staid, slow-paced world of rowing boats, steam-powered launches, and spartan sailing craft. Boating was never to be the same. With the gleaming, varnished mahogany, the nickel chrome hardware, and the plush, multiple seating areas these double and triple cockpit runabouts transformed the pleasure boating market, and numerous builders sprung up to sate the nation's quest for speed and performance. Renowned names like Dodge, Chris Craft, Gar Wood began building runabouts, often as a result of speedboat racing success, but none ever reached the pinnacle of craftsmanship and perfection that John Hacker did. To possess a luxury item from a storied era nearly a century ago, in this high level of condition, is a rare opportunity. Stutz Bearcat motorcars, Piaget watches, Erte paintings, Frank Lloyd Wright homes, Hacker runabouts - all conjure up memories and images of the best artisans a time period, long-passed, had to offer. One does not merely possess such priceless artifacts, one serves in stewardship for the next generation to treasure and enjoy. GAD-A-BOUT is turn-key, and ready to cut a wake and turn heads wherever her next dock and waterway await her.
