The 2014 featured Marque Class is Barrelbacks. Although the term barrelback is a modern one, the stern design it represents is timeless. Originally termed “Torpedo decks” or excessive “tumblehome” all resulted in a boating icon. The famous naval architects John Hacker and George Crouch are credited with the sloping design feature, drawing it into a few of their more exotic racing boats and runabouts in the early 1920s. The basic definition of a barrelback is one curved, unbroken line (as viewed looking stern, forming the sides and deck drawn from waterline to waterline along the transom).

Chris-Craft was not the only builder of barrelbacks, and the Concours hopes to recognize all of the true barrelbacks produced prior to W.W.II. including Hackercraft, Mercury, Century, Gar Wood, and a few others.
