1959 Chris-Craft Sportsman 17’ Mahogany Boat w/Trailer

I am selling my restored Chris-Craft Mahogany boat.  My son and I bought the boat about 10 years ago as a project.  The boat has been stored in my garage since he passed away 8 years ago, but its now time to move on.

My Chris-Craft has been restored to its former glory:

  • Everything works;
  • Hull refinished and has 12 coats of Epifanes varnish;
    • Copper bottom paint;
    • New screws and bungs.
  • Lots of new chrome;
  • 283 Chev. Engine completely rebuilt using mostly new parts and has only been run for about 3 hours;
    • New distributor, all ignition parts replaced, new electric fuel pump;
    • Replaced distributor, generator, starter, carburetor, regulator; battery;
    • I ran the boat in March 2019, and it started right up and ran great.
  • Interior completely reupholstered in original colors;
  • Over $20,000 invested, plus ??? hours;
  • Trailer included;
  • $15,000 local pickup in Fresno.
