Vintage Bros Boat Sales is proud to offer this fantastic 1946 25' Chris Craft Sportsman. What makes it fantastic you ask? Because it's a minor project; it needs to have all its hardware reinstalled, motor, carburators, fuel lines and gas tank gone over so it can run.
This is a rare chance to own a piece of nautical history. This may be the last original 25' Chris Craft Sportsmans available.
At Vintage Bros Boat Sales we are classic boat enthusiasts first and boat brokers second. We love finding new homes for boats we too would love to own.
The hull of this boat is original so it will need to be 'soaked up'. As a project it's been out of the water for a number of years. The hardware has been removed and a few coats of varnish were applied.
The interior looks to have been replaced at one time but certainly looks serviceable. Otherwise the boat is a bit of a time capsule! The steering wheel is in good shape as are the gauges which are currently removed from the boat.
The boat is on an older dual axle trailer. Make the presumption it will need tires and bearings. It appears to cradle the boat well. It is powered by an 'M' series Hercules engine of 130hp. Like any machine that has been sitting plan on going thru the fuel system, rebuilding the carburetor, and having the gas tank cleaned.
The value of this boat is demonstrated in two major ways:
1.) In its originality. So many of the 208 25' Sportsmans have had restorations, re-powers,
etc. it's nice to find one that has gone relatively untouched.
2.) I believe its a minor project. The hardware will need to go back on, and the engine gas tank and carburetor will need gone thru and be tinkered with to get it ready to use.
So for anyone looking for an iconic Post war Chris Craft to tinker with look no further. Call Jim at 513 678 9379
