1948 Chris-Craft Custom Deluxe 17 Antique in Royal Palm Beach, Florida

Stock #184030

Located In Royal Palm Beach Florida is this Amazing 17 foot fully restored 1948 Chris-Craft Custom Deluxe Runabout.

There are very few beauties that have survived. This is a piece of history that most folks don't get the opportunity to enjoy, She is definitely a head turner in or out of the water.

The engine is all original powered by the original 1948 KBL Tri-Power 6 Cylinder 131 Horse Power engine. All rebuilt with only 1/2 hour on the water since rebuild.

The interior is all brand new with rubber mat floors. There is Red cushioned seats as to not neglect comfort but also not to take away from the original look of the classic boat. All gauges are big and easy to read analog.

You are shielded by a brand new windshield. There are also special sirens and horns forward to the windshield for that classic look. Then don't forget the Chris-Craft Flag.

Back in the engine compartment you have 6 volt battery and also a 6 volt generator. All 3 carburetors were totally rebuilt and are like new.

One amazing touch is at the rear where you will notice the Chris-Craft gas cap. A $400 find that also doubles as a Cleat.

This boat was purchased by the current owner in 2011 when the restoration began. He was told that the previous owner had the boat stored for over 20 years.

He replaced the rear deck where over 4500 brass screws were removed and silicone and bronze screws replaced them. The entire bottom was re-seamed with 5200 caulking.

The trailer was rebuilt in 2017 and it is included in the sale. it includes a swing arm and it sits on a Rolco frame.

Don't miss out on this amazing Classic Chris-Craft Custom Deluxe 17.

Information On Condition

This boat is just amazing just look at the photos.

The detail is so incredible that all the dowels are in the same direction of the wood grain.

The engine is just spotless. A joy to look at. The Throaty exhaust can be heard from quite a ways away.

If there are a few things that this boat would need would be to replace the cutwater in the words of the seller even though I think it is okay(Look at the photos). Also he feels the Fire extinguisher may need to be replaced.
