We are proud to label this boat sold. Panama City, FL OR BUST!!
If you've been around and know boats, particularly in NE Florida, then you know the name Bill White. Nobody has a better reputation for doing repairs and restoration right than Bill White. And this beautiful 1974 Chris-Craft hull restoration shows Bill's commitment and dedication to outstanding craftsmanship. And this hull has just 48.9 hours on it since restoration.
And that's just the beginning of the extensive work that's been done to this beautiful Chris-Craft.
Check out this list of mechanical upgrades this owner says have been completed just 6 hours ago:
- New custom long block 350 with power cam;
- Re-manufactured OEM (Paragon) transmission;
- New manifolds and risers;
- New fuel pump;
- New carburetor;
- Fuel filter housings/filters, hoses, and belts;
- New exhaust system;
- New 60 gal stainless steel fuel tank.
Add to all of the above the custom built aluminum/canvas cockpit cover and all the new cushions and upholstery, and she's as comfortable and beautiful as she is sound.
And all the above rides on a massive, custom fit, aluminum I-beam trailer that makes you feel like you're not towing anything at all.
There is just so much to this beautiful old Chris-Craft that you have to see her for yourself.
The owners of this vessel have done a wonderful job of restoring this boat. But...it was restored to use - not as a "showpiece".
These are fisherman at heart, and she was built (rebuilt) for that purpose.The huge cockpit offers tons of space to move around and plenty of space for gear. And the six rocket launchers and four gunnel rod holders put your "tools" within easy reach.
Finally, the Garmin GPSmap 188C Sounder makes sure you get where you're going - and back!
LISTING UPDATE 8/2/2017-- Due to the deteriorating health of this boat's owner a water trial will not be possible. There a water bib so the engine can be run where it sits. This boat is sold "as is - where is".
