This is your opportunity to own a piece of history that clearly defines the contrast between today's mass produced plastic boats and those created in a slower paced era when careful American craftsmanship and select timbers were dedicated to building boats to serve an owner's family from generation to generation.
How about a little history
To the general public, no boat more epitomizes a "Chris-Craft" than the famous U-22. In production throughout the war for government applications, the 22 has its roots in the 1934 21' UTILITY and is very similar to the 1940 and later 22' "vee" windshield DELUXE UTILITY. For 1946, the design was updated with rolled and rounded bow and covering boards similar to the 18'. A full range of engines was available, from the small "B" through the "M" series. From 1945 through 1948 most of the boats were painted and white sided SPORTSMANS are common today. From 1949 through 1954 most were mahogany. A total of 2,082 were built during the nine-year production run -- by far Chris-Craft's most popular boat of any type during the late 40's and early 50's.
