Twin Finn Boat

Twin Finn is a 21’ 1959 Chris Craft Continental, hull number CL-21-149.  She was manufactured in Cadillac Michigan and initially delivered on Dec 11, 1958, to Greene Valley Motors, Catskill New York.

Chris Craft developed and manufactured the “finned” continentals between 1957 and 1959.  The series included 185 boats.  This was a very small production number and consequently is a relatively rare model.

The finned continental was truly a transitional boat.  Its details were taken from the 1957 Lincoln automobile. The boat is powered by a Chris Craft 283 cc V-8 engine and cruises at 38 MPH.

The Sizzler Boat

This incredible one-of-a-kind wood sailboat was designed specifically for Lake Coeur d’Alene and built by Coeur Custom. The entire yacht is sailed single-handedly by her owner or the captain, using an array of sophisticated hydraulic controls. She is 60 feet long with an 87-foot-tall mast, displaces 42,000 pounds, and has 30 coats of mirror-smooth finish. This floating work of art took 30,000 man-hours to complete. She combines traditional and exotic materials from around the globe. The Sizzler combines the best of technology with pure sailing ability.

1938 17’ chris-craft deluxe runabout “Jennifer ll” (Don and Jennifer Vogt)

Jennifer ll is a N. Idaho boat shipped from the factory to Spokane in Dec. 1937. We acquired the boat in 1989 and keep her on Hayden Lake. This 1938 Chris-Craft 17' Deluxe Runabout reflects classic mid-1930's boat design, with elegance of scale, proportion, and line. Jennifer ll is virtually all original, and has received top national and regional awards since her complete restoration in 2008.
