22 Feet 1988 Century Coronado Hardtop
Nice, fully restored Coronado. Came out of a collection of Classic Glass boats a couple years back. The boat went through a full restoration to make it look like new, as were all the boats in this collection. the present owner had a cover made for the rear open part (there is also a full mooring cover) and the only repair has been a new oil cooling system. The bilge is as dry as they get on these and she runs beautifully. Only 265 hours.
22 ft Feet 1927 Hutchison Utility
My parents purchased the boat in the late 90's. It was well used through early 2000's each summers on Lake George. The boat was winterized annually and stored at Morgan Marine in Silver Bay until a dozen year ago when my father got ill and we brought the boat home to Buffalo, N.Y. and put it in the garage. It's been there ever since. Well protected from the elements but has not been used in too long. So the story goes from my dad this is a 22 ft utility runabout built by Hutchison in 1927 so that would make it one of the early versions if not prototype for the 22' utility in the 1930+, The engine was rebuilt but as mentioned has not been run in a dozen years. The boat is on a new trailer used to transport Grand Cru from Silver Bay to Buffalo. Trailer is a separate negotiation.
21 Feet 1962 Lyman Boat Works

Four planks replaced, ribs repaired, bilge cleaned and painted, repacked stuffing box, new cutlass bearing, and new exhaust hoses. Mahogany transom and decks fore and aft all stripped, sanded and re-varnished with 8 coats. Sides sanded, epoxied and painted with 4 coats. All hardware removed and re-chromed. The varnish gleams and the sides shine. The upholstery is impeccable. The engine runs smoothly and the trailer is road-ready. The price is right and you could be cruising in this beauty this afternoon.
26 Feet 1968 Chris Craft Cutlass Cavalier
We purchased the boat in September, 2015 and have been using it each summer since then. The information we received from the seller indicates that it was originally delivered in 1968 to Minnetonka Boat Works in Wayzata, MN. The records indicate that the engine is a 327 with 210 horsepower. The seller also claimed that work exceeding $18,000 had been done, but there were no details about that work. A previous owner removed the original cuddy, but as you can see from the pictures, it does not look chopped up. Essentially, he created a large open boat for day cruising, which is exactly how we have enjoyed it for the last several years. We have it on a lift in Lake Minnetonka in the summer and it is stored indoors in the winter. We invested in a complete strip down to the wood and repaint of the lap strake sides and a stain and varnish refinishing of the transom (although the transom finish is starting to weather). We also had the carb and starter rebuilt and a new fuel pump installed. The engine runs well and it cruises along pretty well when it gets up on plane. There is no speedometer so I can't tell you how fast it goes. It holds 10-12 comfortably as it has a 10-ft beam. It handles waves extremely well, including running through wake-surf boat wakes at speed. The trailer was purchased in 2016 and has been used sparingly. The boat appears to be structurally sound in general. The bottom is ok but could probably use some caulking and sealing in places, particularly where it meets the transom. There are a couple of floor and/or floor support pieces that could be replaced where the wood is starting to deteriorate, but we use it as-is now with no immediate problems. Some cushion covers are ripped, but useable (filling is not falling out). The engine runs really well. If it sits more than a few days, it usually requires priming some gas directly into the carb, but after ignition it runs fine and will re-start without issue. We have used the boat every year including this summer.

Launched in 2003, she spent her first years on New York's Lake George and more recently cruises the Thousand Islands section of the St. Lawrence River in extreme Upstate New York. This is a top condition boat with lots of room in her s-shaped cockpit.
20 Feet 1954 Lyman Utility
“Perfect Evening” is a two-owner boat whose first life was centered on a southern Vermont mountain lake. Since 2010, she has been kept on Lake George in the Adirondacks, always docked under a canopy, and stored in winter in a garage. Over the past several years, the boat has received attention through a local restoration shop. In mid-2018, the bottom was sanded 3 times and painted with 3 coats of copper bronze paint. The transom was stripped, sanded, bleached, stained, wood sealer was applied, followed by 10 coats of varnish. In December 2018 and January of 2019 the starboard side covering board was replaced along with sanding and re-varnishing of the decks and painting of the sides. In May of 2019, the engine had a complete tune up, including the rebuilding of both carburetors. A compression test was done on all cylinders: 1 - 110 psi, 2 - 140 psi, 3, 4 and 5 were at 130 psi and 6 was 120 psi. "Perfect Evening" is in generally very good condition and ready for her next owner.

22 Feet 1953 Shepherd Utility
I purchased this boat back in 2007 as a project when I owned Pecks Marina in Ivy Lea, ON, on the St. Lawrence River. It sat in my workshop until 2019 when I finally started working on her full restoration. I turned the boat over and put on an all-new 5200 bottom, then flipped her back to work on the top sides. All new mahogany decking, wiring, engine mounts, and flooring. Gas tank was steam cleaned and epoxy coated inside. Instruments are new as is the upholstery. Chrome was redone as well. The windshield unfortunately is a plastic replacement but glass can be obtained and installed. "Black & Tan" has only been in the water once last year and for 1 month so far this year (2023). The new engine is not yet fully broken in and needs to be run easily for another 10 hours. This boat is very stable and reliable with all systems being new. Varnish and paint all in very good condition.

15 Feet 1964 Century Resorter
This is a unique and fun little Resorter with an interesting history that was featured on the cover of Century Boat Club “Thoroughbred Newsletter” No.119 – Summer 2010 Vol.31 No.2. It comes with a photo album documenting a complete rebuild in 1999-2000 using modern techniques with 3M 5200 in the traditional build method as when new. The boat has unique mahogany decking with all new bottom, sides, topsides and many ribs, and battens. So the boat is of modern construction in a traditional method that will last far longer than when new. Hull is very tight no-soak. It has been well maintained, used every summer over the last 10 years with 2 varnish refreshings and 2 bottom paintings during that time. The 289 Ford Interceptor engine was ‘marinized’ by Holman Moody of NASCAR fame with a Holman Moody intake manifold and Holly 4 barrel carburetor. Additionally the engine had a complete rebuild in 2013 including new heads, newly ground crankshaft and re-bored pistons with new piston rings, bearings, gaskets and seals. Receipts for this work are available.

19 Feet 1961/1958 Duke Port Carling Runabout
The original Duke was a 1961 My Dad`s mistress! Was rebuilt in the ~90`s by Ed Skinner at Duke Boats. About 7 years ago it needed a new bottom. Paul Brackley found me a 1958 hull he had newly redone. Same boat, but needed an engine etc. So Paul took everything important out of the `61 and put it into the `58 including reconfiguring it for a 6 cylinder and refitting the upholstery. The engine purrs like a kitten and barks like a Harley! She had a major tune up about 3 weeks ago. Everything always well maintained. I would let her go to a new home only because of my mobility issues.

26 Feet 1956 Chris-Craft Continental
"Twin Spin" is hull #3 out of the 48 26-foot Continentals made by Chris-Craft in 1956 and only 82 of these big utilities ever made by Chris-Craft between 1956 and 1959. "Twin Spin" was originally called "Allegro" by its initial purchaser, Dr. Clayton Stubbs; who was one of the wealthiest residents in Mount Clemens, Michigan, and could afford to purchase one of the first three Chris-Craft Continentals made with many special order items from the factory. The price he paid in 1955 was around $9,000, which equates to the price of an average house, or four new Chevrolet Bel Airs at that time. The boat is mostly original as per the original hull card. Some of the special order items from the factory which make this boat a standout are its full length instrument panel from port to starboard, with glove compartment and door, throttles together on port side of the steering wheel, hatch in the forward deck, amongst a number of other special order items as per the original equipment record from Chris-Craft. They are all are still on the boat today. "Twin Spin" was completely restored in Holland, Michigan around 2006, where the bottom was encased with a West Bottom system along with all the other bright work, engines, etc., being brought up to show standard. The work was commissioned and finished by Grand Craft in Holland, Michigan, one of the leading boat builders of mahogany boats in the USA with a reputation second to none. Since that time the boat has done less than 200 hours and has been kept and cared for as part of my collection. Making this boat even rarer and more sought after are its powerful twin MCL 175hp engines, which make cruising at 30 knots a breeze and achieving 40+ knots with ease as the engines purr in synchronization. The twin engines make docking and maneuvering easy in tight spots - along with making the skipper look like a true professional! "Twin Spin" makes Riva owners envious and is now looking for a new home and custodian to take it into the future.

19 Feet 1964 Thompson Super Lancer
I purchased the boat in 2000 from second owner, completely restored and used often for 10 years nearly every weekend in fresh water lakes, towed to Florida several times to the St Johns River, Tennessee River in Alabama and Mississippi for wooden boat events. The boat is ready to launch now and is fully equipped for pleasure rides, river cruises, fishing and towing. Comfortably carries 4-6 people. I have cared for, maintained and kept stored safely out of the weather when not in use. It is sound and as all lap strake boats it does seep some water until fully swelled but not of any amount that the bilge pump cannot maintain. I upgraded the engine to modern power 1999 4.3 Mercruiser V6 and a new drive when I replaced the rotten transom. The original in line 6 cylinder was great but this boat responds extremely well with the V6 engine. Our reason to sell is we have decided to purchase a different primary boat and this one is primary now so no need for two. 2012 West System 3M 5200 bottom with all new marine plywood and keel cap, new covering boards and decks, strip seal and painted entire hull, stained and varnished all wooden parts, new floor boards and vinyl covering, new hardware, 21 gallon below floor plastic gas tank, depth/fish finder and GPS, Minn Kota remote control trolling motor (24 volt) , new deep cycle batteries, rod holders. 2015 New interior vinyl, modern gauges, dash board, new convertible top, restored trailer, new stereo with Bluetooth, two marine speakers mounted on hideaway hinged board under dash 2019 Replaced interior with black gator and tan vinyl, new sunbrella cover with draw string and snaps for towing 2022 Replaced transom and rear deck, applied 13 coats of varnish, changed furniture to sundeck and bench, new vinyl in rear, improved stringers, installed 1999 V6 4.3L engine, brand SEI new drive, all new gimbal bellows, cables and seals, upgraded engine controls and wiring, added new electric trim tabs, 4 new marine speakers in rear bench seat, thru hull transducer for depth/fish finder and GPS, repainted hull and bottom, new trailer hub bearings, aluminum mag wheels and tires Additional accessories included in asking price All operation and safety gear, mooring lines and fenders, spare prop and hardware, fishing tackle for trolling, portable live well, 4 rods with open face reels

New hand trimmed mahogany planks were glued with 5200 and screwed to new white oak battens. Boat was flipped and 2 coats of CC red paint applied to all interior wood services. The 2-ply deck seams were cleaned, caulked and received 12 coats of professionally applied varnish, along with the topsides and transom. Interior "ceiling" planks and floor boards were done by owner. A new marine-grade fuel tank was installed, and motor was re-installed in the boat. After the motor was installed in the boat and test run, some water was found in the bilge. This came from unseen micro cracks in the motor!! This began a complete tear-down and replacement of engine parts, including all new manifolds, block and a total rebuild!

Cruise in comfort and elegance on your own 28 ft Chris Craft Sea Skiff.

18' Feet 1942 Chris Craft Deluxe Utility
This 1942 18’ Chris Craft Deluxe Utility was one of the last peacetime boats delivered; sent to Bennett Boat Company in New York six weeks before Pearl Harbor, and was registered as a 1942 model year. The 18’ Deluxe Utility ran for three model years, from 1940 to 1942 and 408 hulls were built. Less than 10% of the hulls were built with the unique wood frame windshield. I have only been able to document 5 surviving 18’ models with the wood framed windows so this example is somewhat special. This boat went through a complete restoration in 2010 by a well-known classic boat restorer that included a new, no-soak 5200 bottom, a new stainless fuel tank, electrical system changed to 12v, the gauges rebuilt, the decking was replaced, the upholstery was replaced and the interior planking stripped and finished. She is powered by her original “K” engine (95 HP) and transmission as delivered in October of 1941. The engine was rebuilt as part of the 2010 restoration. The unique feature of this model is the ventilating windshield. Most boats have solid windshields to keep you out of the wind, but occasionally it is nice to have a breeze. The front windows push open as much or as little as desired. A snap on top was added at restoration to add shade or keep you dry in a sudden rainfall. In 2019 through 2021 the boat went through a restoration update by another professional restorer in Idaho. Work included building a new transom with new matching wood, stripping and taking all side planking down to bare wood, new wood fit into plank gaps and filled with West System epoxy, all new bronze fasteners, new splash rails, re-stained and finished with 7 coats of varnish plus new bottom paint. I have the restoration documentation. This boat is in excellent condition. She won Best Utility at the 2019 Payette Lake ACBS Boat Show and in 2020 was judged Best Pre-War Chris Craft Utility in the Chris Craft Antique Boat Club virtual boat show. She is complete with a custom waterline cover built in 2021, a restored period brass fire extinguisher and a custom-built dual axel Coastline trailer. In the water on Payette Lake in McCall, ID if additional photos or test is desired.

19 Feet 1966 Century Resorter
This is a great opportunity to own a rare classic. Century built only 41 of these in 1966. It was purchased from Links Landing at the Lake of the Ozarks and I believe I'm the 2nd owner. It was definitely well cared for. The 66 Resorter came with a sliding top which can cover the drivers area, or can be slid back to cover the engine area. (see pictures)The engine is the legendary Buick 401 Nailhead which was chosen by the US Airforce to be the starter engine for the SR-71 super sonic spy plane. The bottom is in need of some repair on the keel towards the front. The interior is in good condition. I would give it a 8.5 out of 10. This boat is a true head turner. It also comes with a tandem axle trailer.
17 Feet 1956 Higgins Speedster
"Johnny Reb." It's a 1956 Higgins sportster, with a 292 Thunderbird Interceptor motor. We are the second family to own this boat. It was acquired by my father in 1973 from family friends. It was the boat that he learned to ski on as a kid and couldn't pass up the opportunity to own. My father did a full motor rebuild in 1981 and cared for all maintenance until 2015. He's getting up there in age and the boat has been in my possession ever since. I already have my own boat that I use for everything, and so the Reb has just been sitting in my garage for the last six years. I feel that it's time to let her go to a good family that would love to have a classic boat.
22 Feet 1948 Chris Craft U-22 Sportsman

Comes with a solid twin-axle trailer.

She has only been on Payette Lake less than 10 hours. She was a stunner at the McCall Wooden Boat Show in 2019. Her home is currently in indoor storage in McCall waiting for a new family to enjoy her.

Chelsea is a rare find and a beautiful example of the Chris-Craft brand of storied workmanship, attention to detail and Great Lakes style. Her timeless design with extra wide seats up front, a cozy cabin and large aft deck with a wide bench seat in the rear has many newer boats sharing Chelsea’s same layout, for example see the Fortier 26 at six times the price. Constructed of 1/2 inch plywood, she is solid bottom with no structural issues whatsoever and powered by a V-8, 300 hp Crusader engine. The hull was painted last year with some touch ups inside. She comes with a lot of equipment including a 5-inch Garmin GPS, dripless stuffing box, dock lines, porta potty, compass, anchor and rode, fenders, complete cushions for her cabin, compass, transom cover, waterproof bimini, plastic side curtains, radio, antenna, 60-gallon gas tank, wooden swim ladder, and more. While she has been meticulously cared for by her present owner of seven years, like many boats of her vintage problems crop up. At end of the 2020 season the lifters began making noise and need to be replaced. This past summer (2020) my wife and I took her on a seven-day cruise from Darien, Connecticut, on Long Island Sound , out to Block Island and back To Sag Harbor before returning home to Western Long Island Sound. She’s got legs. Chelsea is an beautiful example of an early 60s Sea Skiff and after looking all around Long Island and up and down The Sound, I haven't seen another in half as good shape. I’m a private seller and want to see Chelsea go to a good home and considering her lifter problem is priced to sell. If you have questions inquire to the ABA website and give me a call. She is a really great boat and any offer will be considered.

22 Feet 1986 Century Coronado
This boat was bought from the original owner about 10 years ago with 68 hrs on it. It now has just under 200 original hrs. The boat has always been stored inside in the winter and under cover when in the water. As typical with these boats, the transom was professionally replaced and the stringers were repaired to better than new. The boat has its original gelcoat that is a little chalky, but should be able to be buffed out. Great family boat that runs perfect.
17 Feet 1965 Chris Craft Custom Ski
This 1965 Chris Craft is one of 60 – 17’ Custom Ski built in 1965, and one of 150 Custom Ski hulls built between 1965 and 1967. The Custom Ski model was offered with the Chris-Craft 283 engine producing 185 hp. Present owner purchased in 2013 with approximately 50 hours adding approximately 80 hours on a local freshwater lake between 2013-2015. The owner moved to Florida in 2016, and the boat was put into storage. This well-kept example is in mostly original condition and would benefit from regular use. The boat is ready to run as-is, or would make a great candidate for complete restoration to mint original condition. Cover and trailer are included.
17 Feet 1964 Christ Craft Super Sport
I am the second owner of this beautiful Super Sport and have owned her for 37 years. The first owner left the boat out in the weather for the four years before I acquired her in a swap for a debt owed to me. I kept her in my storage facility for twelve years until I decided to undertake a thorough restoration. I found a boat builder in Salt Lake City who spent two years in 2005-2006 refurbishing the hull and all parts. She is a completely original boat with very low hours on her engine and a good, solid trailer. She has been used sparingly by my adult children over the past 15 years. I am 83 and it's now time to sell my toys.
