"A great classic boat with beautiful woodwork throughout! Low hours and ready for its new owner today!"

For many of us, owning an antique boat is a way to hold on to something from our past. For many who enjoy getting their hands dirty, the do-it-yourself types.
You build a relationship with a wooden boat. Working on it in the off-season.. not to get a couple more seasons out of it but to carry it...more

1955 Chris-Craft sportsman Antique in Lakeland, Michigan

Stock #190554

For many of us, owning an antique boat is a way to hold on to something from our past. For many who enjoy getting their hands dirty, the do-it-yourself types.
You build a relationship with a wooden boat. Working on it in the off-season.. not to get a couple more seasons out of it but to carry it on for generations to come.

This beautifully maintained Sportsman is about as close to original as it gets and is the perfect start to your next family heirloom. With the original Hercules engine that has very few hours on it since it was worked on by the guys at Chris-Craft in Algonac Mi. You will love the way she sounds motoring through the water.

The interior on this Sportsman has been updated some years ago and the bottom of the boat was painted with authentic Chris-Craft paint and primer but was never caulked so it will need some attention.

The varnish is rough in some areas but with a little love, this boat could be back to magazine quality.

Advertisement is for vessel only. Trailer is not being offered for sale by POP Yachts.
Information On Condition

Needs some attention to the hull, Varnish is in bad shape in some spots. needs to be caulked. Was never kept in the water and has been out of the water for years so there is no rot in the wood. It has never been glassed.
