The cabins have been remodeled at some point in the boat's history with the center cabins separating partitions removed to make one larger single cabin of wht used to be two small cabins. Full size washer/dryer installed in lower aft companionway. Carpets are not secured and the interior is generally unkept and cluttered with cleaning and painting supplies. Detailing paint around windows needs to be completed and the whole interior is in need of updating. This boat has been boathouse kept since 1972 and hasn't been out on an adventure since 2001. It hasn't really had much maintenance since then either except an oil change and about $3000 worth of work at Sunnfjord Boats in Tacoma.

Broker's Comments

Major Price Reduction of $16,000!! This 57 foot Chris-Craft Constellation has an October 2008 survey that reports "all-in-all this Chris-Craft Constellation appears in good condition structurally, but in need of a good interior and exterior detailing and upgrade". There are a few wood repairs that were noted two years ago that are yet to be addressed. That said, this is a lot of boat with upgraded electronics and tremendous potential. The engines have relatively low hours and were professionally maintained, however, due to the fact that the boat hasn't left the boathouse since 2001 except for a survey, all areas including engines need current maintenance performed. While the refined beauty of this model's original condition is obscured, it appears to be recoverable and the boat is well-priced for someone interested to undertake the project. The owners are very interested in selling this vessel and will consider all offers. This vessel will likely need some yard time before a long trip should be considered.

A large boathouse is available with the boat and will soon be priced separately on Boatshed Seattle. It requires a membership to be maintained at Day Island Yacht Club. Check their web site for membership fees.

A diver cleans and re-zinks this boat on 6 month intervals.

These boat details are subject to contract.
