1955 Chris Craft Cavalier:  This 15 ft Chris Craft  had an extensive restoration 5 years ago that included a complete engine rebuilt ( Original - 60 HP 4 cyl. Hercules) , new upholstery and most of the wood replaced. Wood Replaced: Complete upper deck and Transom framing ( White Oak ), Sides and upper deck with Marine grade Meranti, veneered top surface with ribbon stripe Sapele. Seat Framing,Floor Boards and Upper Crossbeam. The remaining wood was treated and sealed with a clear penetrating epoxy. All the chrome and brass are in great shape and comes with the original stern flag. Every part and piece was removed inspected cleaned and or replaced if necessary. The Exterior / Interior were completely sealed and painted with Sandusky and the wood has 10 coats of varnish, sanded between coats and polished for a beautiful shine.This will come with a yacht club single axle galvanized trailer that is in great condition. The boat has always been garaged and under cover when out and well taken care of. There is a marine survey that was completed in 2012 giving this craft a value statement of       $ 36,000 in its current condition. I can forward you the actual marine survey and the original  Chris Craft build sheet and spec's ( copy ). This boat has been out a hand-full of times since 2012 and would say that there was not more than fifteen hours of run time since the restoration had been completed. This is a beautiful boat and shows very well. Please email me if you have any questions or if you would like additional photos. I do have a power-point presentation on the restoration if you would like that as well. Shipping not included.Good luck bidding
