Description
The current owner of this beauty bought this boat from ABC last year. After investing in a refresh and enjoying the boat in 2017, he is ready to sell! Don't miss your opportunity on this water-ready 17' Sportsman.

Around 2002, the previous owner had every plank removed, inspected and replaced as necessary during a major overhaul of the boat. At this time, a 3M 5200 bottom was professionally installed, as was a new Rayco fuel tank.

The current owner had the varnish refreshed and deck seams redone this year. In addition, he had the rebuild Chevy 283 tuned and installed a new transmission. All work was professionally done and receipts are available.

According to the owner, the only non-original items on the boat are the larger modified doghouse, or engine box, to accommodate the 283. In addition, the electrical system was upgraded to 12V and an upgraded steering wheel was added. This boat must be seen to be truly appreciated!

The current owner has all manuals, brochures, the original receipt from the boat delivery in 1957, a Chris Craft book and even a small model of the boat for desk display included in the sale! He is a wonderful customer who has owned Chris Crafts for several years and is a member of the Antique and Class Boating Society.
