Price reduction on a “floating cottage” and two recent “solds”

August 23, 2018 in Uncategorized

Why pay taxes on a  property with a fixed shoreline  when you can enjoy a “floating cottage ” and indulge your yearning for new destinations?
We have been instructed by the owners of this handsome, 37 foot Chris-Craft Constellation (1963) to adjust the price on the boat from $39,900 to $34,900.  This a a lot of boat for the same price as a new mid-size 18-20 foot runabout.

See notes from the owner below.
Chris-Craft Constellation: 37 ft., 1963
Freshwater / Great Lakes boat since new, this vessel features twin A.M.P Dolphin 8L V-10 315-hp Gas Engines with 285-hours. Notable features include, but are not limited to the following: air-conditioning, Head (Vacuflush) w/Vanity/Sink, Westerbeke Generator, Garmin (Color) GPS/Chartplotter, Pioneer AM/FM Stereo System w/CD-Player, Hardtop w/Canvas Back-Drop, and MUCH more!
A comprehensive restoration was completed in 1998, including the finishes stripped down to bare wood from top to bottom. The bottom was redone with interlux antifouling paint and above the water line it was primed with epoxy primer and top coated with acrylic polyurethane. The teak decks where sanded down to fresh wood and re-coated with Tuffshield for a virtually maintenance free finish. The swim platform and all other miscellaneous teak surfaces were also refinished.
The boat includes a teak swim platform, DSC VHF, Garman GPS, Ritchie compass, spotlight, quad air horns, central air for cabin and Westerbeek 6.0 kW generator.
In 2000 the engines were upgraded with twin 8 Litre V10s (see advancedmarinepropulsion.com). The vessel continues to be stored inside during the off-season and looks and performs as best in class.
In addition to the engines and surface finishes the alcohol counter burners have been replaced with electric burners. All engine gauges were rebuilt in the 1980s and all of the wiring was upgraded or replaced to ABYC standards. All instrumentation is in A-1 working order.
The boat has won many awards in boat shows in Southern Ontario and Michigan.
Original price: $39,900 USD. New price: $34,900 USD.  For contact information,  please click on the link. Ad number pb809
