Classic Wooden 1960 Chris Craft 17 Ski Boat

Vintage classic wooden 1960 CHRIS CRAFT 17 ski boat in great condition. Professionally refinished in 2004. The complete exterior and interior Philippine Mahogany has been epoxy resin sealed. All seat cushions were re-covered to their original Chris Craft specs. The engine is the original 283 Chris Craft Marine (Chevy) V-8 with approximately 350 engine hours. The carburetor was rebuilt in 2009. All deck fittings are original including the American flag Chris Craft burgee. The glass on the tachometer is cracked (see photo) but it works fine. New battery with negative disconnect switch installed in 2010. Includes original engine service parts manuals and original Chris Craft Boat Owner s manual, custom-fitted heavy-duty cloth-lined vinyl cover (see photo), spare prop, inboard motor flusher attachment, 4 life jackets, flotation cushion, 4 dock fenders, emergency paddle, fire extinguisher, compressed air horn, hitch receiver extender. I have also researched the Chris Craft archives at the Mariner s Museum and have copies of the original documentation from the manufacture of this vessel. Nice Chris Craft pictorial history book Wooden Runabout Restoration Guide also included. The trailer is in great shape; new tires recently overhauled with the wheel bearings repacked and added Bearing Buddies in 2010. I ve also added a winch, bow stop, wheel jack rear bunk guides to the original trailer for extra ease of launching and taking out of the water (see photos). New submersible tail light kit that I never installed + $88 credit to online marine accessories reseller is included. This beautiful boat has only been in fresh water, is completely seaworthy and does not need any work to immediately enjoy but it does need someone who will love and care for it the way a classic wooden boat needs. I am the third owner. Classic boats like this in this condition typically sell for thousands of dollars more than my minimum price. Based on the Hagerty Classic Boat Insurance Price Guide (see their web site) this boat s value is a 3+ as described below: 1959-1960 Ski Boat 17ft 825 made Cond 4/Good Cond 3/Very Good Cond 2/Excellent Cond 1/Bristol $9,000 $14,000 $21,000 $27,000 Boats in #3 condition will have only light visible cosmetic flaws.

The coloration of the deck might be off from original, and the varnish might have some light clouding. Small repairs, or areas that need small repairs, might be in plain sight. All gauges will be present, but the faces might be faded or even cracked. Chrome is good, but possibly not all of it is fresh. A seasoned boater will be able to make a list from five feet away of this boat’s needs. Why am I selling? I purchased this beautiful boat on impulse having grown up skiing on the back of boats like this and dreamed of one day owning a classic wooden boat. But never having owned one, I soon realized that I do not have the time to fully enjoy and care for it. Winning bidder must pay $500 non-refundable deposit via Paypal. Balance must be paid in cash, direct wire transfer or bank certified Cashier s Check but the transfer or check must clear your bank before I will release the title. I would consider trailering the boat to a more convenient pickup location (within a reasonable distance) for an extra fee but payment must be complete before I would leave my area.
