CLASSIC CHRIS CRAFT STYLE , BRAND NEW NO-SOAK BOTTOM, NEW HULL REFINISH, NEW UPHOLSTERY & MUCH MORE INCLUDED!!!
OLD GLORY, the age-appropriate and patriotic name, was given to her by her current owner who has taken great care for her maintenance and upkeep. With OLD GLORY, it is not about the destination, rather, its all about the journey. This classic transports the passenger to a time gone by.
The owner offers 'OLD GLORY' for sale with great pride. She is designed to hold 4 adults with comfort and ease to enjoy her graceful stride over the waters of any freshwater lake and river. She is able to hold as many as 6 people.
This 1950 Chris Craft is in very nice condition both mechanically and visually to the eye. Upon first sight, this boat will draw your attention because it just looks good and you don't see one like it every day.
The current owner has taken great care to make this vessel very pleasing to the eyes and mechanically sound in its operation. There is no mistaking the quality of craftsmanship from a 'by gone' era when things were 'hand-fitted' carefully, built by hand, one piece at a time. You can see the attention and care given to this boat when you see this beautiful classic.
This 1950 Sportsman underwent an earlier restoration 8 years ago with a 20-gallon fuel tank replacement. In 2020, she underwent a complete bottom, keel, and rib replacement. The bottom was replaced with 2 layers of high-quality Sapele plywood with 4 layer application of epoxy adding exceptional strength, integrity, and a solid ride. This is a true, no-soak bottom with no need to soak the boat in the water before using it every season.
During her 2020 restoration last year, her heartbeat, the original Chris Craft "K" engine was repainted in the classic Chris Craft blue and reinstalled with a thorough examination of the transmission to make sure her drivetrain functions with reliability and precision. This Chris Craft is strong, flexing her 95 HP muscle and provides an easy to enjoy cruising speed of 13-18 knots with ease for an enjoyable day with family and friends.
Upon completion of the new, no-soak bottom installation, the engine was installed with the transmission, and every component reassembled. During this restoration, the electrical system was upgraded from 6 to 12 volts, providing exceptional starting power and complete reliability of function. All electronics and lights work excellent.
The exterior and interior hull has been treated with a 12 layer application of Epiphany marine varnish making the deep, rich, mahogany hues, appear to be almost liquid to the eye. It displays a very simple beauty to look at. The new owner will have the luxury of many admirers wherever OLD GLORY decides to play for the day. She proudly displays the stern flag/light and a Chris Craft bow pendant to put the beautiful finishing touch on this exquisite vessel.
Upon first look at the interior, you can see the blue upholstery replaced 6 yrs ago in fine condition and pleasing to the eye. Every seam and stitch displays good symmetry and balances with an overall compliment to the interior mahogany hull.
A custom-fitted navy blue mooring cover fitted perfectly to her classic form is in exceptional condition with an estimated value of over $3K.
Her trailer, a 2019 Venture, is new/used, handling her only major trip, a journey from New Hampshire to Virginia when the current owner bought her in 2019.
The bearing, tires, and lights performed perfectly and without any issues.
This wonderful and classic Chris Craft looks very good. She is ready to grace the waters and turn every head that sees her. One look at OLD GLORY and you will see, this wonderful Chris Craft, the way it was meant to be.
