The pre-war Chris Craft Custom Runabouts are the most iconic of all the vintage runabouts. The 17’ version was built from 1940 to 1942. These boats are referred to as barrel backs.  Barrel backs get their name from the almost perfect semi-circle transom that from the rear looks like a floating barrel. These runabouts were fast, agile, and beautiful.

This kit, for modelers with experience, contains everything you will need. The kit has laser cut plywood keel and frames, basswood sub-planking, rich mahogany planking for the finished deck and hull, cloth seat upholstery, Britannia fittings, and dry transfer lettering and flags.
