Information On Condition

Unbelievable, over 50 years old and it looks like new. Very nicely reconditioned Chris-Craft.

The recon on this vessel took place about six years ago.
This boat had $200K spent with top of the line boat pros (Irish and Frontier Classic plus best in class service vendors) to refresh every inch.

The bottom is very clean but could use a coat of paint.

One of a kind find.
