1940 17' Chris-Craft Deluxe Runabout


“Tuppence” is a 1940 17’ Chris Craft deluxe runabout, also known as a barrelback. She is powered by a 95hp Model K Hercules engine. In 2014 she was refurbished with an engine rebuild, new upholstery, new bottom and stain and varnish. She has been on Lake Tahoe for years, so she does not have a trailer. She has one 3rd place and two second place finishes at the Woodies Over The Bottom during Wooden Boat Week, so she is looking for a skipper to take her to that first place trophy. She can be seen at Homewood, CA (Lake Tahoe) High and Dry marina.


Asking $45,000.
