1959 Chris Craft 18ft Continental

by

$23,000.00

1959 Chris Craft 18ft Continental.

These late Continentals are very popular due to the fact that they are the last of the full wood decked boats but feature the newly available 283 Chevrolet based engines. This makes for an excellent ski boat, with plenty of horsepower, unlike earlier models that had an anemic flathead six.

This example is an older restoration, but the important work is still solid. It features a west system, full epoxy glued bottom for leak-free launching. In 1992 the engine was upgraded to a high performance 350 block, making over 260 hp. It comes on a custom fitted tandem axle trailer. The upholstery is in good condition and was done to the original pattern. The varnish is showing its age and will need to be re-coated in the near future.
