Chris-Craft Sportsman: 27 ft, 1962
Notes from the owner:
“I have up for sale my 1962, 27 ft, Twin Engine, plywood lapstrake hull , Chris-Craft Sportsman. This open launch hull is in excellent condition, having been kept in a barn most of the time since 1962. Has prime coat on outer hull. Varnish has been removed for staining and re-coating. The engines are (twin Gray 283’s. One was rebuilt only a few hours on it). The Nautolex decking is secure. Has cuddy cabin. Only requires cosmetic restoration. One of 240 built. Perfect boat to keep up in the boat house for that special evening or excellent guest conveyance for a 5 star resort. Boat is located north of Toronto, in Barrie Ontario.”
Note: A tandem axle trailer with new tires, rims and bearings is available for purchase. Also, The drive shafts and props come with the boat.

Original Price: $9,800.
New price (September, 2018), $3,500   WOW!   For further details and contact information, please click on the link  Ad number pb718

Editor’s note:  I have seen this boat and believe that the owner is a “straight shooter”.  Even though the Sportsman is not cosmetically appealing in it’s current condition, I believe that it offers significant potential, especially for “big water” boaters.  Surely the engines alone (one rebuilt) in this Chris-Craft are worth the asking price.
