Description:  
To buy another boat this make and year, but that needed mechanical and refinishing work would cost about $20-$25000 over the original purchase price to get to the quality level of this boat. A rare boat house find. 1953 Chris Craft Riviera, 18ft kept in a boat house in northern Wisconsin. The owner went to great lengths to keep the boat in original and outstanding condition. The interior upholstery is in great condition considering it is 60 years old. The boat still runs on the original 6 volt system, everything works, horn, lights, bilge pump. The KLC engine started within 10 seconds of cranking after sitting all winter and maintains 50 psi of oil pressure. I lowered the boat into the water and expected it to leak like a screen door. I was surprised that even after 2 hours of running around the lake, we probably only had an inch of water in the bilge. The bilge and inner planking are very clean, no oil or dirt. The outer bottom planks are cupping in places, but for 60 years of service in good condition. The finish and chrome are in outstanding condition. No discoloration around the plank seams or bungs. The brown and blonde stain are very good and the boat had a new coat of varnish 2 years ago, so that should be good for another 4 years.
