Details

History of vessel

A limited production model, only 51 Special Race Boats were built by Chris Craft between 1936 and 1937.

The company believed that the design was one of the most elegant and capable models in production. Fast and fun to drive, the 19 Special Race Boat leaps out of the water and is equally striking at idle speed. Its sharp blue and white paint scheme was a departure from the norm of stained and varnished mahogany, and reflective of the art deco era.

This example has been comprehensively restored by Vintage Boats of Bristol, CT, and is in exceptional condition. Repowered with a Chris Craft 283cid engine, she runs smooth and is a joy to drive. Complete with a custom-built and color-matched single axle trailer!
