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.

The remainder of the hull is smooth and fare and the varnish shines. All emblems and logos are in great shape. The Gold leaf on the stern is bright and is used on the registration numbers as well. The windshield is clear and free of any scratches. The weather stripping shows some dirt but no discoloring. The stainless trim has a screw that has backed or popped out on the stem. There is a small chip on the plastic center steering wheel cap. The white waterline stripe has a small area of peeling at the stern. The seat cushions are stored indoors and show no signs of use or wear. The engine compartment is tidy and the engine appears to be in proper order. The shaft and rudder appear to be in order as well. The engine is the original to the boat and was rebuilt by George Shen a known Chris Craft engine expert. It is a Chris Craft Hercules K model with 131HP The gauges were rebuilt by Pat Powell. The restoration of the vessel was completed by the owner. The owner's favorite part of the boat when asked is the Sound! The boat has never been is saltwater. It has been stored and covered but seldom used since around 2006 due to the owner having some mobility difficulty.
