Wow!!! What a beautiful example of a totally restored classic Chris Craft. This boat was a barn find by the previous owner who took it upon himself to completely restore her from 2008 until 2012. As you can see by some of the pictures, it was completely taken apart and redone. Bottom was taken down to bare wood, seams caulked and then a barrier coat was put on then painted. Now the bottom is very tight and barely needs any soaking what so ever. For only 3-years Chris Craft made what they call a Bull Nose on the front, makes it so nice looking. Then any planks that were suspect were replaced. New floor boards were made and installed with new flooring. The engine box was hand made and striped for a little more character. I think it looks nicer than the original. All hardware was sent out and re-chromed, gages also were rebuilt. During this time all new wiring was put in. The inside bottom was cleaned and re-painted. The gas tank was taken out,flushed and coated on the inside and re-painted on the outside. She also has a new Glass windshield. The upholstery is original and still very comfortable. The engine was removed, shipped out and completely rebuilt, has maybe 8-10 hours on her, still in the breakin period. This girls just runs..with an "M" engine she really gets up and goes. Can carry 5 adults comfortably. Comes with a Very Nice Custom Regency Tandem Trailer with brakes.
