1948 Chris-Craft Deluxe Runabout Antique in Cassopolis, Michigan

Stock #253087

Beautiful and in pristine condition. Bring your white gloves for this showing. Gorgeous FOR SHOW but hankering for the water. This is the one of a kind boat that has everyone gawking in the lake wishing they were the ones cruising on the water.

All new 5200 waterproof paint to bottom, beautiful new book-matched mahogany sides and decks. Restored instruments and re-chromed deck hardware. The brightware and upholstery are worthy of the description Bristol.

The seller appreciates and thinks the best feature is the flawless look of the mahogany and the compact size. He has typically launched and run the engines about five hours a season since he bought it and winterized the engine in October 2020 and has not been launched since.

2015 C-Hawk custom trailer included.

Information On Condition

The Decking and sides of the boat are painstakingly book matched to grain and color. 2021 Fresh Gloss Varnish highlights the wood grain.

All brightware refinished chrome.

Flawless red upholstery with updated seat frames. Newer cloth-wrapped wiring and fresh varnish just completed.

Approximate boat location: Cassopolis, Michigan
