This beautiful one owner 19’ Chris Craft Holiday, Hull #19-348, was trailered straight from the factory in Algonac, Michigan, to Wisconsin in 1953. The original Chris Craft six-cylinder Hercules KLC engine has been winterized each year and serviced regularly. She was refinished and renovated by a reputable antique boat restorer in 2004 replacing mahogany planks where needed and adding a 3M waterproof 5200 bottom. This well-maintained piece of history has been loved by the same family for over 60 years. It has been stored in a garage for the past four years due to poor health of the owner but was used regularly in freshwater lakes prior to that. Trailer comes with the boat.
