26 Feet 1968 Chris Craft Cutlass Cavalier

We purchased the boat in September, 2015 and have been using it each summer since then. The information we received from the seller indicates that it was originally delivered in 1968 to Minnetonka Boat Works in Wayzata, MN. The records indicate that the engine is a 327 with 210 horsepower. The seller also claimed that work exceeding $18,000 had been done, but there were no details about that work. A previous owner removed the original cuddy, but as you can see from the pictures, it does not look chopped up. Essentially, he created a large open boat for day cruising, which is exactly how we have enjoyed it for the last several years. We have it on a lift in Lake Minnetonka in the summer and it is stored indoors in the winter. We invested in a complete strip down to the wood and repaint of the lap strake sides and a stain and varnish refinishing of the transom (although the transom finish is starting to weather). We also had the carb and starter rebuilt and a new fuel pump installed. The engine runs well and it cruises along pretty well when it gets up on plane. There is no speedometer so I can't tell you how fast it goes. It holds 10-12 comfortably as it has a 10-ft beam. It handles waves extremely well, including running through wake-surf boat wakes at speed. The trailer was purchased in 2016 and has been used sparingly. The boat appears to be structurally sound in general. The bottom is ok but could probably use some caulking and sealing in places, particularly where it meets the transom. There are a couple of floor and/or floor support pieces that could be replaced where the wood is starting to deteriorate, but we use it as-is now with no immediate problems. Some cushion covers are ripped, but useable (filling is not falling out). The engine runs really well. If it sits more than a few days, it usually requires priming some gas directly into the carb, but after ignition it runs fine and will re-start without issue. We have used the boat every year including this summer.

26 Feet 1956 Chris-Craft Continental

"Twin Spin" is hull #3 out of the 48 26-foot Continentals made by Chris-Craft in 1956 and only 82 of these big utilities ever made by Chris-Craft between 1956 and 1959. "Twin Spin" was originally called "Allegro" by its initial purchaser, Dr. Clayton Stubbs; who was one of the wealthiest residents in Mount Clemens, Michigan, and could afford to purchase one of the first three Chris-Craft Continentals made with many special order items from the factory. The price he paid in 1955 was around $9,000, which equates to the price of an average house, or four new Chevrolet Bel Airs at that time. The boat is mostly original as per the original hull card. Some of the special order items from the factory which make this boat a standout are its full length instrument panel from port to starboard, with glove compartment and door, throttles together on port side of the steering wheel, hatch in the forward deck, amongst a number of other special order items as per the original equipment record from Chris-Craft. They are all are still on the boat today. "Twin Spin" was completely restored in Holland, Michigan around 2006, where the bottom was encased with a West Bottom system along with all the other bright work, engines, etc., being brought up to show standard. The work was commissioned and finished by Grand Craft in Holland, Michigan, one of the leading boat builders of mahogany boats in the USA with a reputation second to none. Since that time the boat has done less than 200 hours and has been kept and cared for as part of my collection. Making this boat even rarer and more sought after are its powerful twin MCL 175hp engines, which make cruising at 30 knots a breeze and achieving 40+ knots with ease as the engines purr in synchronization. The twin engines make docking and maneuvering easy in tight spots - along with making the skipper look like a true professional! "Twin Spin" makes Riva owners envious and is now looking for a new home and custodian to take it into the future.

18' Feet 1942 Chris Craft Deluxe Utility

This 1942 18’ Chris Craft Deluxe Utility was one of the last peacetime boats delivered; sent to Bennett Boat Company in New York six weeks before Pearl Harbor, and was registered as a 1942 model year. The 18’ Deluxe Utility ran for three model years, from 1940 to 1942 and 408 hulls were built. Less than 10% of the hulls were built with the unique wood frame windshield. I have only been able to document 5 surviving 18’ models with the wood framed windows so this example is somewhat special. This boat went through a complete restoration in 2010 by a well-known classic boat restorer that included a new, no-soak 5200 bottom, a new stainless fuel tank, electrical system changed to 12v, the gauges rebuilt, the decking was replaced, the upholstery was replaced and the interior planking stripped and finished. She is powered by her original “K” engine (95 HP) and transmission as delivered in October of 1941. The engine was rebuilt as part of the 2010 restoration. The unique feature of this model is the ventilating windshield. Most boats have solid windshields to keep you out of the wind, but occasionally it is nice to have a breeze. The front windows push open as much or as little as desired. A snap on top was added at restoration to add shade or keep you dry in a sudden rainfall. In 2019 through 2021 the boat went through a restoration update by another professional restorer in Idaho. Work included building a new transom with new matching wood, stripping and taking all side planking down to bare wood, new wood fit into plank gaps and filled with West System epoxy, all new bronze fasteners, new splash rails, re-stained and finished with 7 coats of varnish plus new bottom paint. I have the restoration documentation. This boat is in excellent condition. She won Best Utility at the 2019 Payette Lake ACBS Boat Show and in 2020 was judged Best Pre-War Chris Craft Utility in the Chris Craft Antique Boat Club virtual boat show. She is complete with a custom waterline cover built in 2021, a restored period brass fire extinguisher and a custom-built dual axel Coastline trailer. In the water on Payette Lake in McCall, ID if additional photos or test is desired.

27 Feet 1961 Chris-Craft

Chelsea, a 1961, 27-foot Chris-Craft Sea Skiff is a great day boat that you can camp out in with a fully cushioned V-birth. She is a pleasure to drive and with her mahogany transom attracts attention where ever she goes. She can easily carry six for an evening cruise and with her powerful eight-cylinder engine confidently glide over the water at 20 knots. The handsome engine box in the middle of her roomy nine foot by 12-foot aft deck makes a picture perfect platform for cocktail making and a full-on appetizer spread. Chelsea is a rare find and a beautiful example of the Chris-Craft brand of storied workmanship, attention to detail and Great Lakes style. Her timeless design with extra wide seats up front, a cozy cabin and large aft deck with a wide bench seat in the rear has many newer boats sharing Chelsea’s same layout, for example see the Fortier 26 at six times the price. Constructed of 1/2 inch plywood, she is solid bottom with no structural issues whatsoever and powered by a V-8, 300 hp Crusader engine. The hull was painted last year with some touch ups inside. She comes with a lot of equipment including a 5-inch Garmin GPS, dripless stuffing box, dock lines, porta potty, compass, anchor and rode, fenders, complete cushions for her cabin, compass, transom cover, waterproof bimini, plastic side curtains, radio, antenna, 60-gallon gas tank, wooden swim ladder, and more. While she has been meticulously cared for by her present owner of seven years, like many boats of her vintage problems crop up. At end of the 2020 season the lifters began making noise and need to be replaced. This past summer (2020) my wife and I took her on a seven-day cruise from Darien, Connecticut, on Long Island Sound , out to Block Island and back To Sag Harbor before returning home to Western Long Island Sound. She’s got legs. Chelsea is an beautiful example of an early 60s Sea Skiff and after looking all around Long Island and up and down The Sound, I haven't seen another in half as good shape. I’m a private seller and want to see Chelsea go to a good home and considering her lifter problem is priced to sell. If you have questions inquire to the ABA website and give me a call. She is a really great boat and any offer will be considered.
