Documented by the Mariners’ Museum Chris Craft Newport News, VA (all documents included). Utility version of Sportsman and used as a ski vessel in its early life in Georgia. This vessel was restored in the name of the Owner’s grandfather (Chubby – D) with no expense spared. The restoration was started in 2002 and was completed in 2010. The original plan was to do a waterline up restoration, but the owner decided to send the boat to a Chris Craft Restoration company and have the boat completely taken apart and rebuilt. Upon return to Owner, a 6-year process finished the detail work. Hull, Top-sides, Mechanical and operational restoration includes:
Owner spent over $60K in rebuild and built the boat as a weekend user. Boat is garage kept and comes with a mooring cover. Easy Roller Aluminum Bunk trailer included. Less than 1000 miles on trailer. Since time of restoration, family has moved and interest are elsewhere. This is an excellent example of a vintage Chris Craft that is ready for many years of service.
