Since the beginning, Christopher Smith crafted the boats that dreams are made of. Chris-Craft boats became the cultural icons that gave people a new freedom to explore the clear waters of local lakes and distant shores. More than any other brand, Chris Craft was responsible for America’s romance with boats – and ultimately, for redefining boating pleasure for generations of people everywhere.
This Chris Craft is in good condition. The deck and hull side varnish are in very good condition. The bottom is a cold molded epoxy bottom and is excellent condition. Bilge paint is in good condition. All hardware is present, and chrome is in good condition. Interior is not period correct but is custom and in very good condition. Flooring is not period correct as well but is custom and in good condition. All the restoration work was done at Classic Craft in Sacramento and Fine Line Trim and Upholstery in Rancho Cordova. The seller has put together a impressive binder of all the records of work done to this boat.
The boat is powered by a Chris Craft 283 that was converted into a 350 with 260 hp in 2010. The engine has 34 hours on it since the rebuild, runs really well and has been tested by Sierra Boat. The boat comes on a 2014 California Trailer Works trailer that is in excellent condition.
This Chris Craft Continental is ready for a new home!
