General Details

4 tons of boat and 95 horsepower means she is of the Cruiser Class, you simply guide her along with all the gear you can load and she takes you there in style. A swim deck to cool off, comfy seating and plenty of room out of the sun. Flip up her windows and feel the breeze on your face as you take the helm. Brass, stainless, hardwood and glass, there is no plastic on this boat, she is not of that time, but of her own, the 1930's and she has survived. She clearly shows what The American Craftsman could produce and it is an amazing thing to see.

She lives in her own private boathouse now and is always ready for a cruise. She has been used weekly for the past several years and also has a current survey, which is available to interested parties. Chris Craft built thousands of these Pocket Cruisers over the years and very, very few exist now. Her story is one of preservation and survival. Will you be the New Skipper that pilots her through the years to come

Fresh Water her entire life. A true American Classic. Prewar Craftsmanship built of Philippine Mahogany, her keel was laid 1939 in Algonac Michigan. Complete Survey available. She has lived her entire life in the fresh water of the TN River. She is powered by the original engine, a Hercules K straight six, an industrial motor that starts instantly and is ready for more water adventure, fun and memories. She has been updated, here and there, to bring her into the modern age of boating, electronic ignition, an alternator and more. She retains the classic feel of The Golden Age of Boating, a stern deck to enjoy the sun, a large cabin with head, galley and v-berth. She has all you need and she's stout built , she sports a a double plank hull and thick bulkheads, she motors along as she has for over 7 decades, slowly and beautifully, she is a lady, a work of art on the water.
