The Chris Craft heritage of building beautiful boats started in a small town in Algonac, Michigan. It was here that 13-year-old Christopher Columbus Smith built his first boat in 1874. His boats - referred to as "punts" or "skiffs"- quickly earned him a reputation as a master boat builder, and the demand for them grew and grew.
Chris-Craft was the largest manufacturer of production wooden boats and remains one the most sought-after marques of classic and collectible runabouts today.
During the second world war, Chris-Craft turned its attention to helping the country. It began building patrol boats, utility launches, and rescue vessels for the United States Navy and Army. And by 1945, had built 12,000 military vessels.
This Chris craft has been restored to near perfection and almost everything has been kept original.
The owner says everything works as it should, the vessel is in great shape and does not need to be splashed as it has the 5200 no-soak bottom. The complete restoration was done in 2011.
Original Chrysler Ace Marine 6 cyl engine type 5M6. Trailer is in great shape and is a 2010 Tebben.
