Broker's Comments

Owner says bring offers!! Recent price reduction makes this a outstanding value.

This classic Chris-Craft 42 Constellation features a spacious and well-designed two stateroom layout. She is in well above-average condition, having been moored in fresh water most of her life. Owner would consider similar size sail boat on trade.
Considered a top-of-the-line mahogany cruiser, this is one you must see if you are in the market for a sweet classic 42 Chris-Craft.
