Classic Chris-Craft Continental still available:

June 13, 2018 in Uncategorized


Chris-Craft Continental: 20 ft, 1955
This 1955 mahogany Chris-Craft  was located in a neighbour’s dry (dirt floor) boat house in 2012.  It had been in storage for twenty years! The boat was wet sanded, re-varnished and all the chrome was re-polished. The Continental has always been boat house stored and offers strong wood in great shape.  The boat runs really well…a fast 28 mph+, powered by a 6 cylinder 120 hp Hercules with three carbs.  The engine has been converted to a twelve volt system, so it starts easily. An automatic bilge pump has also been installed in the boat. Last year a fresh coat of copper bottom paint was applied to the hull. The Chris-Craft seats four or five comfortably and handles the ‘big water’ of Georgian Bay.  The sale includes four life jackets and a safety kit.

Price:  $19,500  For additional details  and contact information,  please click on the link.   Ad number pb781  (Additional photos below.)
