"Classic runabout that is solid, seaworthy, and fun!"

The 20' Custom Runabout was first produced in 1946 and ended in 1949 with a total of 366 boats built. One of the things that set it apart was the use of the blonde king planking. It was the first Chris Craft model to offer this feature.

1946 Chris-Craft 20 Custom Runabout Antique in Seattle, Washington

Stock #081947

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

The 20' Custom Runabout was first produced in 1946 and ended in 1949 with a total of 366 boats built. One of the things that set it apart was the use of the blonde king planking. It was the first Chris Craft model to offer this feature.

It's also the only boat Chris Craft built after the war with leather seats. The bright red leather contrasts nicely with the blonde and red-mahogany stain. Possibly as a cost saving measure, the interior panels were upholstered with matching red vinyl

The transom is beautifully crafted with a "tumblehome" or slant. It is also rounded from side to side.

The fancy folding windshield tilts forward and fastens to the deck on little brackets with knurled nuts.

Chris Craft included two storage cubbies on the back of the front seat. Perfect for sunglasses and cell phones.

The seats and dashboard are all red leather. A small Chris-star-Craft logo embellishes the dash. The simple three spoke steering wheel is understated for such an upscale boat.

The windshield folds forward and lays on the deck on either side of the centrally located vent. A very nice feature on a hot day.

Unlike most post-war Chris Craft runabouts, the 20' Custom Runabout had double hatches over the engine.

The engine is the BMW B-220 Marine engine. Year of the engine and hours on the engine are unknown, as it was installed several owners ago.

Trailer not included.
