Built in Algonac, Michigan, in 1961, and delivered to Staff Jennings Marina in Portland, Oregon, TAHOE is a 1962, 55' Chris Craft Constellation, hull #CAB-55-007. Hull material is mahogany, beam is 14' 9", LOA is 55’ 6” and draft is 3' 10". Tahoe is powered by two 275 HP 8V-71 Detroit Diesels and has a cruising speed of 12 knots.  

Named TAHOE from the beginning, it is a Washoe Native American word meaning “big water.” TAHOE has been a resident of Portage Bay since early days in Portland and served as a fishing charter out of Westport. Guests are comfortably accommodated in three staterooms and three heads and there is ample deck space for entertaining. A fine example of mid-century design and Chris Craft classic craftsmanship, TAHOE has always been meticulously cared for and maintained. The pride of ownership is evident in the original finish work throughout.
