1950 Hallcraft Mahogany Runabout

RARE 1950 Hallcraft Runabout

This is a super rare 1950 Hallcraft Runabout Mahogany boat. It’s 19ft. long and includes the original Douglas Fir Wood Trailer, which is super cool.  I tried looking up a little more history on Hallcraft and didn’t come up with much.

It sounds like the Hallcraft Boat Company only produced a very small number of wooden boats before switching over to produce parts only. This 19 ft. runabout here may be just one of three ever produced of this model. If that’s the case then this wooden boat is even rarer than RARE. The Hallcraft has gone through a full restoration. The 125hp Chrysler Flathead six has been completely rebuilt. The pictures look great, and I just can’t get over how cool that trailer is.

I for one love me a well-kept Century Resorter from the same era, but mostly for the price point they can offer. There were a ton of Resorters produced as one of, if not the most popular boat for the average boater in the 1950s. If you’re looking to be graded by the judges on rarity and uniqueness as well as condition. Then this Hallcraft is something to consider over the more common Century’s. There are 41 people keeping an eye on this one and for good reason.

The Douglas Fir Wood Trailer looks to be as well restored as the Hallcraft boat itself. Making this show-worthy on or off the water.
