1945 Chris-Craft Sportsman 18 Antique in San Bernardino, California

Stock #116912

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

Better known to the public as a quintessential Chris-Craft, the Sportsman was among the first off the line when pleasure-boat production was restored in mid-summer of 1945.

This 1945 Sportsman has only had three owners since it was brand new. As you can see in the photos, she's taken a few hits lately, the latest coming in January with high winds.

Her Chris Craft 6 Cylinder 105 hp engine has had quite a bit done to her over the years, but she hasn't run in awhile.

This Chris has been intended as a restoration, but time has slipped by, and she needs to go to a new home.

The upholstery was new. The aft seat is still in the garage.

Information On Condition

This Sportsman has spent her last few years in the weather of Big Bear California with cold winters and warm summers. She hasn't seen the water for quite a few years. January of 2017 a high wind sent the neighbors barn into the boat which caused the hole in the side, the bent steering wheel and more of the damage you see.
