1984 Chris-Craft Catalina 281 Cruiser in Discovery Bay, California

Stock #135317

Who doesn't want a Chris-Craft? They have a reputation of being well made with timeless lines, so inviting and thoughtfully designed.

This Catalina 281 is no exception. There are lots of options on this boat. A V-Berth, plus bunk beds that fold out to a double bed, plus a dinette that's collapse-able into another sleeping area.

A nice galley and head with windows all around make this an airy and bright cabin. The back deck is clear of built-ins making it easy to maneuver around quickly when you hook that big fish.

One thing that most boat manufacturers miss these days are windows. Not this model! Windows surround the cabin, and that makes for a bright and cheery feeling you just don't get with a cavernous cabin.

The current owner is a retired mechanic. He's been tuning up the engines and making necessary repairs, so she's working well. You get the benefit! A very modestly priced Express Cruiser with all the Chris-Craft benefits.

Trailer not included.
Information On Condition

Could use a little TLC inside and out, but with some elbow grease and some finishing touches, this boat is ready to host a great party or a fun family weekend, or both!

There's some fading on the blue paint on the sides as shown in the pictures, but nothing a good detail can't make better!

The exhaust manifold and riser were replaced on the port side.

Engine tuned up, bottom painted and new props installed! New batteries installed (one last year and one this year).

Approximate boat location: Discovery Bay, California
