1947 Chris Craft 17 Deluxe Runabout

History
Chris-Craft was founded in Algonac, Mich., by Christopher Columbus Smith and sons Jay, Bernard and Owen. It was the largest manufacturer of production wooden boats and remains one the most sought-after marques of classic and collectible runabouts.

Chris-Craft stock wood production ran from 1922 to 1972. Like the automotive industry, Chris-Craft introduced the next year's models in the second half of the current calendar year.

Because some of the models were produced in fairly significant numbers, vintage Chris-Crafts dominate ownership in the classic boat lifestyle.

This Deluxe Runabout was purchased from the original owner's grandson.

He changed the original seating layout and the transom to make it easier for his grandson to get in and out of the boat while water skiing and enjoying the lakes in Northen California.

Engine History
1957 Ford 312 engine that was installed in 1957 by the original owner and is marinized.

Fresh water use only and mainly used for water skiing.

Second owner is accepting all reasonable offers.

Information On Condition

The owner describes the condition of the engine, running gear and electrical systems as in good working order.

She has never been restored but has been garage kept and well maintained.

The trailer is in good working order.

The dual axle trailer was built in the early 90s and easily tows as a very well balanced load.
