I have a 1968 StarCraft Falcon which is one of their smallest runabouts at 14' and rated for 40hp. StarCraft did make 12' runabout but they are hard to come by.

Mid-50's Alumacraft R model 12' boats (actually, 11'9") are 54 inches wide and came as runabouts. Pappy, who posts here, has a variation he crafted to having a console and steering wheel and throttle.

Specs suggest an 18 hp on the open boats, and maybe 25hp? (not sure) on the runabout. Correspondence with Alumacraft indicated they made about 1400 of them from 54-61-ish.

If and when Pappy posts, he can clarify.

Have fun, be safe.

Every summer several 12' runabouts like this one show up on Craig's List. Keep looking and you'll probably something that suits you.


Sorry for the crummy pic.
