This is a 1958 Chris Craft Sea Skiff that my family is the original owners of. It is a 26 foot lap strake hull that is sound with no damage. This boat is the perfect project for anyone interested in wood boats!
All trim pieces are on the boat with nothing missing. The original 6 cyl engine was swapped out for a more reliable 4 cyl Volvo Penta in 1990. She was last run in 1992 and I have not played with the engine. There are two spots on the lower part of the bow that will need attention (see pictures). - br
The interior of the boat has the optional mahogany lining so that ribs are not exposed. This is seen throughout the boat and is visible in my pictures. There is a cuddy cabin in the nose with two beds and a head. My grandfather had all the cushions remade around 1990 and they have been stored indoors since then. There is a fixed canvas top.
This boat has been stored on blocks since 1992. Shrink wrapped until 2000 but always outdoors. The metal framing above the hull is the removable shrink wrap framing. This is not bolted to hull whatsoever. There is NO TRAILER.
Chris Crafts are highly collectible boats and when restored this boat will be the perfect addition to any collection. Sea Skiffs were well known as durable and dependable vessels. Make this collectable piece of Chris Craft history apart of your family.
