General Details

This post war beauty was acquired in 1996 after the previous owner had an allergy to sawdust. The current owner's restoration would span 5 years. All the hard work shows as you walk toward her you can't help but notice the brilliant sheen of the varnished mahogany as the sunlight hits her just right. The hull is made out of solid mahogany planking which has the Chris Craft logo near the center. The details continue on the bow with a chrome light assembly and a Chris Craft flag. The stern sports old glory. The interior is highlighted by the white steering wheel and the classic controls and gauges. The sleek styling and flowing lines of this Sportsman have automotive like feel reminiscent of the times. The curved clear windshield really stands out along with the bright red cushions. Seating is offered at the stern with room for 3 and the forward seating has a space between to allow movement with seating for 2. There is ample space for storage items under the bow and along side the seating. Access to wiring and controls is also under the dash. Inside there is a mahogany boat hook and glove box like storage.
The Trailer is a Magic Tilt with the Chris-Craft logo and mahogany highlights.
