General Details

One of the Classics from Chris Craft.....

She's a two stateroom, two head, two shower layout with salon and galley mid ship.

Starting forward there is a spacious V berth with two bunks stacked opposite of each other. A ton of head room and hatch and ports for great ventilation. The guest head is huge with a very nicely done tile shower, teak grid floor with drain, nice vanity, sink and toilet.

Moving aft up 3 steps you enter the salon area. Large windows along both sides allow very nice visibility and light into the salon. The windows were all professionally replaced some time ago with anodized aluminum frames and glass. To starboard there is a nice sofa that folds out, to port there are two euro style chairs. The forward wall has flat screen, stereo, clock and lighting and controls for the dual AC units.

Her galley is vintage, quite nice, and has upgrades to frige, micro, and faucet, bar with stools. All original cabinets and stove preserve her time period.

Electrical panel is located at the base of the salon entry stairs and it appears to be original equipment. Owner states all 12V was rewired recently and 110V outlets checked and repaired as needed.

She's equipped with shore power and Kohler generator that is large enough to power the house. 4 batteries, 2 battery switches and charger, all located below deck in the engine room.

Powered by twin Crusader FWC engines, 300 hp ea. Her Borg Warner transmissions were recently pulled and rebuilt and shaft seals replaced. She cruises comfortably at 8 kts and burns 8-10 gph. At top end she cruises 15kts with double the fuel burn per side. She prefers trawler speed and is a comfortable cruiser.

On deck, starting forward she has quite a bit of fore deck area for relaxing and fun in the sun, including a massive rumble seat with cushions that span the entire width of the cabin top. These Chris's were known for the large seating areas forward, and most likely invented this design.

Windlass, anchor and chain, spare anchor, pulpit and hand rails all make her nicely set up for deploying the ground tackle.

Her cabin top is very large and another great spot for laying out in the sun. She has an oversize windshield that wraps around the helm area.

The helm is located slightly right of center with large seat, original gauges and controls with updated Garmin GPS and VHF unit.

Aft of the helm is another seating area with four deck chairs. Overhead is a full bimini top and hand rails surround the aft seating area.

Down one step is an aft walk way that circles the entire boat forward to the fore deck and back around to the aft deck with hand rails too.

From this walkway one boards the vessel at the stern, or mid ship.

There are two entries to the cabin once on the walk way. Mid ship to port via sliding/locking door, or up to the flybridge and aft deck, through the entry hatch and door and down a vintage wooden ladder/steps.

She has a teak platform and swim ladder.
