1939 Chris Craft 17 Deluxe Utility/Sportsman with tandem trailer for sale. In 2014 when I bought it ,the boat needed a new bottom and a cleanup and re-varnish. Hull is all original pre-war Philipine mahogany. Not one mahogany board above the waterline needed replacement. I believe all hardware is original. The previous owner owned had stored it indoors during his many decades ownership. All frames,keel,stem ,transom,deck and topsides original.The Original 6 Cylinder K engine needed a carb job,an ignition points cleanup,a fuel pump rebuild,a new alternator. Compression tested good.
