Broker's Comments

Classic Constellations are simply beautiful vessels and this Chris-Craft 46 Constellation brings to mind a time before fiberglass when boats were thought to have "soul". This rather complete restoration will not disappoint even the most particular of Constellation aficionados. The brightwork on this boathouse-kept beauty is simply stunning. If you could have been at the delivery of this vessel in 1956 I doubt it would have looked as good as it does today. There is a very active owners' group here in the Northwest for Chris-Craft vessels.

With many interior and exterior upgrades and modernizations, and with newer Detroit diesels, this boat is ready to cruise.
