Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself! This Dumas Chris-Craft Model Boat came from the extensive collection from a NJ estate. We have a number of that collector's marine/nautical items that will be listed soon for sale separately in our store wood and resin figureheads, double glass electric lanterns, brass spotlights, Dumas Chris Craft remote control model w/ engine (similar to a 1241), a newer Celstron telescope, custom compass rose table and wall plaque and other lanterns. The listing numbers will be noted below once they are published. What a great looking boat model here.
The boat hull here is made of wood, not some composite material. Very large model as well as 43.5 long from bow to stern. This appears to have been a Dumas Products model.Looks similar to a model 1241, which was a 1938 27 footer. However, this does not have the third seat in the rear, so this is probably a similar model that was discontinued and they are no longer making. This wood model kit boat was put together quite meticulously. The seats, armrest, steering wheel and throttle are all in place. Nice paint and decals on the boat body. The red paint on the bottom shows a little wear, most likely from the two wood stands it sits on.
The brass propeller and rudder are securely in place as well. The front windshields are with the Chris- Craft, just need to be glued back in place. The red colored seats seem to be made of plastic.
Do not see any repaired damage to the hull from the outside. This model even has an electric Astro-21 motor in it. Looks like the mechanism takes two AA batteries to operate.
Cannot say if the motor runs as there was no master control unit with the model boat to test it. The nickel plated metal horns and other hardware are still in place. Also has a Chris-Craft flag on the front and an American flag on the back of it.
This Chris-Craft boat model by itself is 9" tall (11" on the stands), by 43.5" long, by 14.75" wide. The flags sit another 4 above the deck of the boat.
