1965 Chris-Craft Sail Yacht #78 Day Sailboat in Marathon, Florida

Stock #210872

This 1964 classic Chris-Craft 35 Sail Yacht is ready for day sailing and overnight or extended cruising. The Sparkman & Stevens Design provides for the comfort and accommodations of a true Sailing Yacht with a fast seaworthy hull. She has excellent sailing characteristics yet her simple rig and midships cockpit ensure safety comfort and ease of handling.

This boat was featured in the July/August issue of "Good Old Boat Magazine". Starting in 2008 -- Notable work included refinishing and painting the hull removing the original motor and replacing it with a Mercedes 220 55 HP diesel engine. The owner also replaced all standing running rigging and removed every piece of deck hardware and either refinished or replaced them. All of the original teak woodwork is in exceptional condition thanks to the current owner's attention to detail during refurbishing.

The owner also added a custom canvas Bimini Top that attaches to the fixed windshield. In foul weather the cockpit can be enclosed with removable side curtains. The forward cabin contains the galley and room to hang out. The refrigeration box was rebuilt with 3" thick high-density insulation and a low draw Engel ac/dc conversion kit. The enclosed head has a shower and airhead composting toilet. Storage abounds! The current owner eliminated the forward bunks in favor of a cluster of enclosed cabinets. All of the forward cushions have been reupholstered and a removable table.

240 watts of Solar with an updated charge controller and house bank in 2020.

This boat is fully equipped and ready to go!
