Stock #306829

Nothing turns heads like a classic Chris Craft!

Amazingly restored 1938 Chris Craft 817 is ready for you to wow the boating world. Bow to stern this beauty sports amazing condition woodwork with flawless chrome throughout.

The Chris Craft KA-7156 engine was rebuilt by Dave Jerome of Classic Boat Restorations in Portland, OR, one of Portland's finest marine restorers in 1988. It not only gives you great speed, but that "throaty" sound makes one think a muscle car is on the water!

Seating 6 the plush recessed couches are free of wear and tears and guarantee a comfortable stylin' ride for all.

Stored in custom water side garage out of the water, she looks like she was built last month. Art deco chrome fixtures, Chris Craft and American flags complete the vintage look.
