pb722-1>
We have been instructed by the owner to reduce the price on this attractive Chris-Craft ski boat (17 ft, built in 1959).
Originally priced at $13,950, the new price on the “Chris” is $9,950, a saving of $5,000. Please see further notes and additional photos below.
Notes from the owner:
The boat is in excellent running condition. The wood is good (all solid – no dry rot), but should be sanded and re-varnished. The boat is powered by a 180 hp. 8 cylinder Chevrolet engine in excellent condition. The ‘Chris’ comes with a functioning bilge pump. The 2009 Shoreland’r galvanized trailer is in perfect condition and has been indoors 100 per cent of the time
