Description
This boat has been owned by the current owner in northern MI since 2004. Since purchasing the boat, a new 5200 bottom complete with new transom and new wood up to the chines was installed professionally by Classic and Antique Boats in Hessel, MI in 2006-2007. In addition a 4 bolt Mercruiser 454 was installed and bored to 496 cubic inch - several other high performance modifications were made so that the engine would put out between 400-500HP.
The boat was raced (and won) throughout the 2000s in the Les Cheneaux Islands against several other 26' Chris Craft Runabouts - it was also the poster boat for the 2009 Les Cheneaux Islands Antique Wooden Boat Show and Festival of Arts.

Upon installation of the new 454, all electrical systems were replaced in 2005. When the bottom and transom were replaced, the sides and top sides were fully refastened and underwent a cosmetic restoration. New green leather was handcrafted and installed at this time.

The boat was last in the water Summer, 2015 and spends the offseason in the owner's barn on his property. Priced to sell, this boat is truly one that must be seen to be fully appreciated. Please contact us for more information.
