A classic mahogany runabout is the last word in nautical elegance, and Chris-Craft of Algonac, Michigan built some of the finest examples of the genre. This 17-foot 1948 Deluxe Runabout has been expertly transformed into a bar, allowing you and friends to enjoy Chris-Craft’s celebrated marine craftsmanship indoors.

Carefully bisected and resting on a hand-crafted wooden cradle, this Chris-Craft’s cockpit has been replaced by a quartz bar top. Behind the bar, you will find a built-in refrigerator, glassware storage, and Amish-made cabinetry (complete with nautical-inspired helm door pulls). In addition to its polished brightwork, shipshape gleaming wood, and flags both fore and aft, the bar’s transom features entirely appropriate, hand-painted “Uncorked” livery. Completing the package are three bar stools as well as a set of custom-engraved “Uncorked” wine glasses.

Sure to spark conversation—and no doubt destined to play host to many happy evenings with the crew—this unique bar would add just the right amount of nautical flair to your boathouse, man cave, or an event venue…whether dockside or far inland.
