About this Chris-Craft Chris Craft 17 Sportsman

Remarks :
Chris Craft Sportsman 17 for sale. The Chris-Craft Sportsman was built from 1953-1959 and was was one of Chris-Craft’s most popular boats, it was designed as a basic entry level utility boat.  The Chris-Craft name is synonymous with classic wooden powerboats.

The hull is made out of solid mahogany planking with matched light and dark grains on both sides with the Chris- Craft decal on side.  The details continue on the bow with a chrome light assembly and a Chris Craft flag.  Framed, curved Plexiglass windshield.

This boat will be a head turner wherever she is seen - she attracted admiring glances when she was outside our office on her trailer. She appears to be in extremely lovely all round condition and we believe she has been given a full restoration in a previous ownership, since when she has not been launched, to the best of our knowledge.

The engine is original and a runner.

Imported from Florida, USA in 1990, in the current ownership for 14 years (unused).
