Rare 1941 Model. Few made as Chris Craft switched to WW2 production the next model year. Cool large crank windows. Extensive rebuild.History of my 1941 Chris Craft Sedan Cruiser (as best I can surmise): I believe it to have been delivered late 1941 because I discovered this inscription under the galley counter when doing some repairs. It was originally purchased by a family in Nashville who used it on the Tennessee River. I had contact with some of the children of the owner who recalled wonderful times on the boat. Subsequently, it was purchased by an attorney in Washington DC, I believe in the 1960s. It was then purchased from his estate in 2011 by a broker who specialized in antique boats. He drove the boat from Columbia Island Marina to Colonial Beach VA with no problems. He kept it in a heated boat shed there with the intention of restoring her. He decided due to his age and resources to sell her. I purchased it from him in 2012. There was some serious repairs required and the broker hooked me up with an experienced restorer and Master Boatwright. He is an excellent job using Philippine mahogany. It took eight months of his exclusive time and $55,000. I visited on numerous occasions and installed new electronics and updated some mechanical and electrical systems. I drove her from Deale MD to Plymouth MA in May of 2013. The boat ran perfectly. Since then I have made continual upgrades and restorations. So, I believe I am the third owner/user of the boat. I have looked extensively and have never found any other surviving boat of this model.
