Chris-Craft Continental: 20 ft., 1955.

We have been instructed by the owner to reduce the price of this Chris-Craft to $16,500. Please see notes from the owner and additional photo below.
Chris-Craft Continental: 20ft, 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.
Original Price:$20,000
New price: (July 30, 2018) $16,500 For contact information, please click on the link.  Ad number pb781
