END OF SEASON GIVEAWAY

WINTER STRORAGE IS PAID

LAST TIME THIS WILL BE LISTED AT THIS PRICE, CONSIDERING TAKING MY HIT AND MOVING ON IF NOT I WILL HAVE INTERIOR COSMETICS DONE OVER THE WINTER SELL FOR A BOATLOAD MORE IN THE SPRING.

 

 

Up for Auction is a TURNKEY RE-FIT Original Owner 35 Chris Craft Sportfish that has been maintainted and updated with an open checkbook it whole life. The boat itself has less than 700 hours on it and it shows.

 RE-powered with New Fresh Water Cooled 454 Crusader Engines pushing 350hp each at a cost in excess of 30k. Both engines and Borg Warner Tranny’s have less than 200 hours on them. They start right up, idle and run perfectly. The transmissions run shift and run perfect. The stainless steel shafts, bronze rudders, struts and props are in perfect condition and issue free. All fluids have been changed and are fresh and are good to go for the season.

At the time of the re-power all new exhaust hoses and mufflers were installed from the engines to the transom they are in great shape and leak and issue free.

The original tanks and fuel lines were replaced and are issue free.

Updated Thru-hulls operate smoothly.

Updated head and holding tank.

Updated Maxwell windless.

Full Canvas includes Bimini Top - very nice condtion, Fly-bridge Cover- fair condition (needs a little sewing)  and Cockpit cover - very good condition.

The original Chris Craft Gelcoat is in near mint shape with barely any imperfections anywhere. The hull itself shines almost like a new boat and looks better than most boats that are 5 years old. The boat is dirty and needs a good end of season cleaning.

All the controls and control cables operate properly including shift and throttle from both the lower and upper station. (cables have been replaced over the years)

The built in recessed factory trim tabs operate as they should.

Every circuit breaker, switch, pump, light, gauges, bilges, etc, etc all operate properly as they should.

 All Glass is crack free including the windshield, windows and sliding doors.

The structural integrity and craftsman ship that went into building this boat is so beyond the standards of anything that is built today it’s not even a comparison. No Boating company could ever produce this kind of quality today and sell it for a profit and stay in business. This boat went for almost 80k new in 1971, over 500k in today’s dollars. Chris Craft is one of the oldest pleasure boat ship builders that still exist today. Back in the 70’s the quality of Chris Craft boats surpassed Bertram and Hatteras by miles. There is not one soft spot anywhere on any hatch and deck on the entire boat. The fiberglass dashboard is probably stronger than a bayliner hull that’s made today-LOL

The boat is Bottom Painted and has New Zincs installed.

The Original Owner (a good friend of mines dad) has unfortunately ran into health issues and can no longer use the boat.

The boat is being givin away for less than what the engines and trannys are worth.

You are welcome to come see the boat in person anytime during the auction. For overseas buyers I will personally deliver the boat by water from Freeport NY to the Newark New Jersey Port and cover the cost of fuel. I'd love to take a last trip out on her. You are welcome to have the boat surveyed at your expense, it will pass with flying colors.

 Brand new helm seat included shown in pictures / has nice gps chart plotter but has not been installed yet. Comes with life jackets, flares, etc, etc

 

 

 

In my opinion whats left to do to the boat would be the following:

Clean and wax the boat, the boat is dirty and needs a bath

Do some interior updates like replacing the carpet with a nice updated Berber through-out and change the curtains.

     Purchase and Install updated electronics.

     Replace or send out the red and green tear drop style light housings to be re chromed.

     Do some painting and patching around the rear sliding glass doors.

     1 prop has small ding can be fixed for about $150
