The rarest of all post-war Chris-Craft runabouts.Came with a trailer 2 axes with mags (2010) made expressely for this model.  Also included a new boat canvas (2014).  This boat win a second price at the Montreal Classic Boat Show in 2011.I can deliver all over the US and Canada.For the 1958 model year (introduced mid-1957), Chris-Craft replaced the RIVIERA-based 21' CAPRI with an entirely new model based on the new 21' CONTINENTAL.  These boats were known for their automotive based styling details, including white tail fins, sloping aft decks, and interiors which appeared to be direct copies of the latest from Detroit.  With large V-8s, these boats were heavy and fast, and were in fact the last of the large Chris-Craft runabouts.  A total of 44 were built from mid-1957 through 1959, making the tail fin CAPRI the rarest of all post-war Chris-Craft runabouts.
