1961 Chris-Craft Sea Skiff 30'

1961 CHRIS-CRAFT Sea Skiff 30', This is a fantastic boat for entertaining friends and family. She is a real head turner where ever you go. In 1961, Chris Craft built a few large open boats on large cruiser hulls. This boat has a small V-berth forward which will sleep two or offer loads of storage and a private area for changing. It also contains a new pressurized head. Aft of the V-berth, the rest of the boat is devoted to cavernous open deck. 8-10 people can be seated in this area!..so let the entertaining begin. The engines are below deck and out of the way. The boat is powered by a pair of Corvette block GM 283 engines modified by Chris Craft. The ignition has been converted to electronic, eliminating the less reliable points. Each engine delivers 170hp, starts easlily and runs well. This boat has undergone a total restoration,the boat was disassembled down to the hull. Wood was repaired or replaced as needed, including several stringers and a hull section. Every wood surface on the boat was professionally resurfaced. Hull sides, bottom, decks, floors, and all varnished surfaces. The vinyl on the decks and floors was replaced. No expense was spared to prepare this boat for years of carefree use. The varnish is 10 coats of deep luster. The bimini cover was new in 2008. Both engines have recently been pulled and rebuilt. This boat was built in 1960 and 1961. 144 boats total were built in those two years of this model. This is a very rare find, and there have been very few owners of this boat even rarer yet. Stunning boat!
