ESTATE SALE 1971 CHRIS CRAFT 42 COMMANDERAFT CABIN   TWIN FORD 460 C.I. STRAIGHT DRIVE INBOARD ENGINES  Classic 42’ Commander Aft Cabin with many expensive upgrades. This has been a local Lake St. Clair boat since new. Her most recent owner of 15 years spent much time and money on upgrades over the years. This boat is being offered for sale due to the owner’s passing. The previous owner re-powered this boat approximately 100 hours ago with big block 460 c.i. Ford V-8 motors coupled to new Z.F. Hurth transmissions. These motors are naturally aspirated and feature custom stainless steel exhaust, new shafts and 4 blade props. The owner easily spent what we are asking for the entire boat, just on the re-power alone. Other custom professionally crafted upgrades include:·  Teak bow pulpit·  Anchor Windlass·  Stainless Steel railings to replace original life lines·  Teak toe rails replaced·  Radar Arch·  Enlarged galley with full size fridge and built-in microwave·  Aft Cabin queen size bed to replace twin beds    The electronics on the boat are vintage. Radar, GPS, Depth Sounder, Trim Tabs, Spotlight and gauges are all in working order. VHF, Sniffer, Horns are not operable. The hull is in very good condition, very shiny, with no signs of major repairs or damage. The spray rail stainless cap has a few dings on either side towards the aft on both sides. The bottom is very good with no build up of bottom paint. It would appear that the bottom was stripped in recent years.  The Canvas is in good condition and includes top, side curtains and straight back-drop as well as helm, Captain’s seat, aft deck seats and bow seat covers.  Exterior seating all in good shape. The cabin headliner is good. Cabin soft goods are in need of replacement. Carpet, bedding, curtains are all dated. These upgrades would make the boat a star! Also, the forward V-berth cabin needs new wallpaper. The Two Marine Air/Heat units function properly. Onan 6.5KW Generator starts, but won’t stay running, needs tune-up. Hot water tank operation has not been tested. Two electric flush heads fore and aft. Owners Manuals present.  SEE VIDEOS OF BOAT RUNNING ON LAKE ST.
