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

***Update January 4th, 2019***

The Trailer was just serviced, is in excellent condition and has 4 brand new whitewall tires. The Sportsman is stored in a barn, covered and out of the weather.

She hasn't seen the water for quite a few years. January of 2017 a high wind sent the neighbours barn into the boat which caused the hole in the side, the bent steering wheel and more of the damage you see.

Approximate boat location: San Bernardino, California
