Our newest listing: a stunning Chris-Craft Riviera.

Chris Craft Riviera: 18 ft., 1951

(Notes form the owner below:)
1951 Chris Craft Riviera.  I recently put $80k into the restoration of Tenby.  No expense was spared as I was expecting to keep her (I have owned her for 20 years (so had very carefully planned this restoration).  However, we will be spending more time on Georgian Bay.  She is a gorgeous craft and is essentially a new boat.
New bottom, new keel, many boards replaced with matching mahogany, new interior, all chrome redone, engine was out and totally rebuilt, all new electric…its spectacular.  (Included in the sale is a tandem axle trailer in excellent condition, all running gear and very expensive rope fenders))

Price: $65,000     For further details and contact information,  please click on the link.  Ad number pb844.  Addtional photos below.

A blast from the past!

December 11, 2018 in Uncategorized

Although it’s only mid December, Ontario’s Muskoka region is buried in some forty centimetres of snow, and winter storms have pounded the Carolinas and even Texas. It’s enough to make woody enthusiasts beg for summer. Althnough we can’t produce warm weather, we hope that this video of an Antique and Classic Boat Society show in Gravenhurst, will provide cheer through these cold, short days. The “footage” in the video was shot by N.H., the former owner of Port Carling Boats. Enjoy.
