Chris-Craft Constellation: 37 ft, 1963
This restored Chris-Craft makes a wonderful cruiser or a floating cottage!
Notes from the owner:
A comprehensive restoration was completed in 1998 including the finishes being 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 recoated with Tuffshield for a virtually maintenance free finish. The swim platform and all other miscellaneous teak surfaces were also refinished.
In 2000 the engines were upgraded with twin 8L 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.
