1963 Chris-Craft 17 Antique in Chapin, South Carolina

Stock #279461

Have a look at this beautiful classic Chris Craft 17 Ski Boat and custom dual axle trailer!!

Chris Crafts '63 Ski Boat is a 17-foot mahogany, plank on frame boat that features planked sides and a planked mahogany deck.

The interior is inspired by early 60s automotive styling trends. The upholstery is elaborately detailed as any Chris-Craft boat in history with horizontally pleated, metallic gold seating areas, surrounded by broad white accent panels, in turn surrounded by metallic green vinyl. This creates the coveted tri-tone look which compliments the deep red mahogany very well.

The owner did not put the registration numbers back after he put on 5 coats of varnish - only to have someone else scratch the varnish trying to get those numbers off and put theirs on. It does have the current registration numbers scotch taped to the windshield

Information On Condition

This boat was recently sanded and revarnished on the topside and sanded and repainted on the bottom. It has been run one time this season since the restoration with no issues. It has always been garage stored.
