This beautiful 1959 classic Chris-Craft Constellation yacht was once the flagship model for Chris Craft. You won't find many like this. She has a double planked hull, all Mahogany construction. There is a fully enclosed wheelhouse and updated diesel forced heat that keeps you warm on those winter days.

At 55 feet long, there is plenty of interior cabin space with 3 staterooms, 3 heads, and a spacious galley / salon area.

There is a walk in shower, counter top bar, and an excellent 360 view from the wheelhouse.

The vessel is powered by twin 6-71 Detroit Diesel turbo diesel engines with custom torpedo props. This beauty turns heads as she cruises at up to 25 knots.

There is an Onan 6kw diesel genset, and 2 forced air diesel heating units forward and aft. The aft lazarette has a walk-down workstation with workbench. The boat comes with tons of extra parts.

Own a piece of rich history and craftsmanship.

Information On Condition

She was just hauled in 2021 and extensively re-fastened with silicon bronze and seams sealed bellow the waterline. The interior finishes and fabrics appear well cared for and seem to be in serviceable condition.

She also received brand new bottom paint, as well as full topside paint. The seller says that inspections performed in 2021 found the vessel to be sound.

This yacht is currently being restored and is not perfect, but has plenty of potential. Vessel comes with thousands of dollars of extra parts to finish her for full asking price.

There are some areas that could used some TLC, such as re-caulking and re-finishing the decks.

INTERIOR: Needs updating, new carpet, and new flooring, misc. painting, heads need finished. Kitchen flooring recently damaged by hatch leak.

EXTERIOR: Re-caulk aft deck seams, misc. painting, address above water hull seams
