                Classic Chris Craft performance speed boat 

True to Chris Craft ancestry, this classic captures the essence of Chris Craft antique boats and fuels the modern Chris Craft Launches.

The owner purchased this boat in 2009.  This boat had a scratch or a ding here 's and and there yet ran and drove quite well. The owner is on his mid 70's and has been a boat person his entire life, and operated a full service boat srvice company for several years.  He is quite capable of handling any mechanical, wood or figberglass, challenges. As retiree with time and capability he brought this boat up to his personal standards..  With his many friends in the boat business there is little or nothing they can' and didn't handle completely and professionally. 


The boat has twin 260 HP 350 cu/in engines with Alpha One out-drives and Stainless Steel Props; and a teak swim platform.


The owner repaired all the dings and scratches on the hull,  then prepped and painted the hull with original colors then clear coated over the paint. 


The deck is original gel coat in like new condition.

Over the years the owner made several changes (listed below) for his personal enjoyment of making the improvements and for the pleasure of results.

He always used Mobil 1 15W/50 and Mercury oil filters. 

All parts and upgrades on this boat employed Mercruiser parts.
