I specialize in Runabout’s built during the 1930’s through the 1950´s. These models are constructed from birch, spruce and plywood, then covered with mahogany planking, just as the real boats. They range in length from 28 to 41. It takes 100 plus hours to construct one of these models. Much care is taken in detail and accuracy; ten coats of varnish are applied to the exterior, then the hardware is applied and the seats upholstered. If there is a special runabout you would be interested in, contact me. Or, I can build you a model of your original boat from your pictures or plans.

This is the 1949 Chris Craft Sportsman U22. This mahogany model is 33 long with a 9 ½ beam.

1936 Gar Wood runabout with trailer boat stand. This model boat measures 29 in length, with a 9 1/2 beam. FOR SALE $2800 as shown

This one of a kind model boat was inspired by a 1950’s Baycraft that was salvaged from the bottom of Lake Tahoe. Located in Oakland California, Baycraft manufactured speed boat racing hulls. The actual boat was fitted with a 1950’s flathead engine that was converted for marine use.

This static model of a 1950’s speedboat is 28 in length, with a 9 1/2 beam. It is powered by a souped-up flathead engine with three carbs which was converted for marine use. It comes witha a removable canvas top. FOR SALE $2995 as shown

The 26 Chris Craft Yacht Tender was a specially equipped runabout. It´s purpose was to ferry the privileged passengers from their large yachts to the dock. The aft cabin provided shelter from the elements for a large party. The aft cockpit provided a place for the deck hand to stand and assist the passengers on board.

FOR SALE $2500


All these models end up with a distinct personality, which makes them one of a kind. They are real attention getters when displayed in an office or on a mantle piece.

I am a wooden boat enthusiast and hobbyist. This is my 19′ Chris Craft dual cockpit forward. It was delivered new to Lake Tahoe in June of 1937. It’s named after our grandson.
