The engine systems include an oil changer system, fuel sniffer in the bilge, Floscan cruisemaster, fuel flow meter, Electroguard Anti Corrosion system. The starboard engine has been rebuilt -- engine hours reported are hours since the rebuild.

This is classic Chris-Craft wood hull construction. The hull structure appears to be in very good condition where visible in the bow/chain locker area, the engine compartment and the large lazarette compartment. The exterior of the hull, cabin and pilot house appear to be in very good condition.

This is a standard configuration for the type. The aft deck is flush with no cockpit but does have a swim step. The entire aft bulkhead of the pilot house consists of two bi-fold doors allowing the pilot house to be opened to the aft deck to create a very large area for entertaining in good weather or closed up for operation otherwise.
The pilot house appears to be in near original condition which is a plus for an old classic though if much cruising is contemplated, a new owner would want to install contemporary navigation systems.
From the pilot house there are stairs down on the port side into the very large main saloon which is carpeted and features an "L" shaped couch to starboard and a chair to port with built in book cases and storage areas including a functional "8 track" player and a collection of tapes (included).
Forward and some steps down is the galley to port and the dining settee and table to starboard. The dining table folds up and the settee slides together to form a double berth in standard Chris-Craft pattern. The Galley provides a four burner gas stove and oven with a good sized refrigerator/freezer and sink. Forward through a folding curtain door is the bow compartment with two single berths to port and a separate head and basin to starboard.
Aft of the main saloon through a door on the port side is the master suite with a large cabin featuring two double beds, one on each side with closets, a free standing dresser and a fold out desk. The large head compartment features a separate shower stall.
The engine compartment is under the main saloon and accessed through hatches in the floor.
This Chris Craft is designed to be a very comfortable live aboard that is capable of serious inland cruising. The general condition of this example is good though needing some TLC. A new owner would probably want to replace the carpets in the main saloon and upgrade the entertainment systems to something from the current century. The pilot house is another area where an upgrade to contemporary navigation equipment would be desirable. But as it stands, the vessel is a solid example of the classic wood Chris-Craft that would be an excellent basis for an easy restoration project and a very comfortable liveaboard.

The pilot house of this yacht appears to be very much in its original configuration. This is good for a classic restoration project but somewhat short of navigation equipment by contemporary standards. A new owner should expect to install a complete set of whatever navigation equipment they will need.
Electric Ideal windlass

dinghy (unknown year)
The aft deck has several nice wood deck chairs and the area is great for just relaxing.
A substantial davit and dinghy mounting system is installed over the transom. The current dinghy is a rather weathered GRP skiff. A new owner would probably want to acquire a new dinghy and outboard to fit.
