Plans are complete and lofted to full size, frames, stringers, transom assembly, hatches etc…includes a detailed set up plan showing heights from baseline and spacings. The Custom Barrelback 19 of the same era may also be of intrest to Chris Craft enthusiasts. This iconic racing boat was originally designed by George Crouch in 1924 and went on to win the 1924 and 1925 APBA Gold Cup.
It has been said that the 16 foot Gar Wood speedster is, pound for pound, the most valuable classic production speed boat in the world.


There are some 15 frames, 2 keels, twin hatch assembly, vertical cleats, gas tank fixing, drivers bench seat, breast hook, front and rear stems with knees etc.
Wonderful opportunity to own a beautiful classic wooden runabout, 1950 Chris Craft Riviera.
It was in storage for over 35 years and has been professionally brought back to better than new condition.
Built roughly around the same era as their famous barrelbacks many of the lines are very similar if not identical.


3 rebuilt carburetors, rebuilt water pump, new fuel lines, new water hoses, new motor mounts, new coast guard fuel tank new Racor fuel water separator, fume detector. This boat has been on the Classic Boat Calender cover of the St Michaels Maritime Museum, Maryland, USA.
