This very original Special Runabout is in beautiful condition and remains true to the vision of the Chris Craft Corporation prior to WWII:

Keep it simple and get people out on the water!

This particular boat however, is a rare bird. There were only thirty-five of this design built in 1938 as it came with a rear seat option. Back then, this unique little watercraft could be often be found being used as a primary fishing boat and the absence of a rear seat gave a fisherman plenty of room to move around.

Add in the optional rear seat and you have a beautiful small cruiser for sunset runs or a cocktail cruise with another couple.

“Friends” as she is known, comes with a beautiful full-leather interior, fitted tandem-axle trailer and a mooring cover that covers the entire boat all the way to the water line!

Please be sure to see the original dash and instruments along with the factory provided Clum switch for ignition and lighting. The steering wheel is in good order too along with the chrome.

The featured bonus round shows that the ORIGINAL factory storage cradle and mooring cover come with the boat too!

Bow pennant and stern light staff complete the package.

The lake lift along with the 22’ canopy is also included.

If you may be looking for an entrée into the antique boating hobby, then this beautiful little boat could be with you on your next sunset cruise!
