The 22ft Sportsman is one of Chris Craft’s most popular and practical post-war models with a total of 2,082 22ft Sportsman’s built between 1946 and 1954. These well known and collectible boats are affectionately referred to as U-22’s and were made famous as the boat used in the 1980’s movie ‘On Golden Pond’ with Henry & Jane Fonda.

This 1949 Chris Craft 22ft Sportsman is nicely restored and features a no-soak fiberglass bottom. The boat is powered by a Chevrolet 350 with 290 hp. The engine has 633 hours and has only been in fresh water.

Extras included with this boat are; custom waterline cover with deck pads, custom bimini top, 2 upholstered storage seats, and more. The boat comes on a 1999 Sport Boat Trailer with dual axles and surge brakes.

This 22ft Sportsman scored a second place in the Lake Tahoe Councours d’Elegance boat show with only the modern power engine keeping it from being a first-place boat.
