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.

Additional History
In 1957 the previous & original owner wanted to convert the seating to accommodate water skiing. The original configuration had trap doors on the sides of the motor box that prevented easy access to the stern. So he replaced the original 90hp flathead engine with the 312 Ford, built a new motor box with access all around the cockpit, & added handles on to the transom.

Call today to schedule a showing or submit your offer.

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. Bottom from rub rail down has been glassed over.

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