27 Feet 1961 Chris-Craft

Chelsea, a 1961, 27-foot Chris-Craft Sea Skiff is a great day boat that you can camp out in with a fully cushioned V-birth. She is a pleasure to drive and with her mahogany transom attracts attention where ever she goes. She can easily carry six for an evening cruise and with her powerful eight-cylinder engine confidently glide over the water at 20 knots. The handsome engine box in the middle of her roomy nine foot by 12-foot aft deck makes a picture perfect platform for cocktail making and a full-on appetizer spread. 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.

20 Feet 1956 Century Coronado

Sold as a new boat at the Sierra Boat company at Lake Tahoe in 1956. This boat has spent its entire life on Lake Tahoe. Bought by the current owner from Sierra Boat in 1992. Original Chrysler Hemi. This 21 ‘ Century Coronado boat has been very reliable for me over the past 27 years. Has always been on Lake Tahoe. I’m reluctantly selling it to decrease my maintenance burden on a number of fronts. I took the boat down to bare wood in 2006 replacing the bungs and the top decks. At that time Also removed the interior vinyl over plywood panels and milled and installed new mahogany slats on the interior. The dashboard was also plywood with vinyl. I manufactured a new mahogany. In 2006, all of the upholstery was also redone. All of the chrome and instruments and chrome are original as far as I know. The boats bottom was fiberglassed professionally at some point before I bought it in 92. Other than 2006, the boat has been in the lake and buoyed every year I’ve had it. The last 15 years in Rubicon Bay. The gas gauge and clock have never worked since I’ve owned it. I use a dipstick and the clock glass has a crack. It has the original Tonneau roof. It has an automatic mid boat bilge pump and I added a manual bilge pump in the stern to pump when the bow is up and under way to lighten the load. In 2017, the original gas tank finally failed. I had a brand new custom tank manufactured and installed. (I believe either aluminum or stainless, over $1000). It has a 2 battery configuration with a switch dial for on/off/both. I have typically varnished every other year and serviced the engine on the odd years. It has a full canvas cover and is always covered when not in use and has always been garaged in the window. The photographs unfortunately don’t show it with a fresh coat of varnish but rather, the day I pulled it out of the water last fall after a full summer of use. I missed the varnishing this year having been too busy with other projects and traveling. The hull should probably be taken down to bare wood soon. I believe the Chrysler hemi is a 331. It has dual carburetors for high altitude, runs with a deep throaty roar and has never failed to start right up in 27 years. The trailer I got it with was scrapped several years ago and I had a new custom dual axle DHM trailer manufactured for it. I have based the price relative to this hagerty valuation.
