1955 Chris-Craft 42 Commodore

Beautiful Classic 42ft Chris Craft! One of the most beautiful boats ever designed! This 42ft Commodore is in very good original condition for being 58 years old. Some wiring, lighting, and electronic updates but mostly all original. Boat house kept, she only needs some loving TLC! Two new updated Altenators and Hugh battery storage make this a great cruiser for weekends or extended cruising. Full Bridge enclosure for those not so nice days. Custom dinghy davits for her 9' Livingston. Large Salon and full galley, along with her spacious aft cabin, make this boat a great live-a-board option! Powered by the original twin Hercules 200 horse power engines with Paragon drives and the original Chris-O-Matic controls.
