Chris Craft Boats 20 Sportsman Boats for sale
1-3 of 3
With much sadness we are selling our 1976 Chris Craft 20' Sportsman. This is one of the early fiberglass runabout boats. This boat is a real time capsule! It is all original with the original interior in very nice shape. Also, this boat has all the original bimini covers and the side curtains. This craft is equipped with a head in the forward seating area of the boat.It also has the original radio. Also, I have the original owners manual and paper work.The outer hull was painted by a previous owner and has some brush strokes but looks good. This is a very heavy and Solid boat! It does not need any hull repair that I know of. This was one of the reasons I bought this boat. At the time I purchased it ,the original 307 engine was installed and was in need of a rebuild due to age. This was an under powered power plant when the boat was new most likely with the thought of fuel efficiency . I talked to a professional Chevy engine builder here and a 383 stroker motor was built from the block up with attention to detail including a 4 bolt main. The engine was run on a crank-in stand and runs beautifully. The old motor was removed and the new one was used to replace it. All the original wiring was put back just as the original motor. Great care was giving to protect the boat's original status with a power increase. The problem that I am having is getting the water from the outdrive to feed the new water impeller that brings the water up to the motor. I am not sure why this is but I am sure that it is a simple thing! Someone with a little time and some knowledge of outdrives will be able to correct this with ease. I placed a water hose into the feed line for the impeller and the engine runs great! The boat was put in the water at the dock for testing but has not been out for a day of fun. The engine has no hours of use. Normally in my past, this is the kind of project that I really enjoy, but currently my time has become very limited with work and children so I have not been able to give the beautiful boat the attention that it needs. Again, I believe that with very little knowledge of boats that this can be corrected and this boat can be out on the water quickly . I have pictured the cost of the new engine. The trailer is an easy loader that was originally equipped with brakes but the previous owner took the master cylinder off the front and replaced it with a standard hitch so the brakes do not work. Also, There is no spare tire. I pulled this boat from Georgia without any difficulty but I cannot guarantee that the trailer will not give any problems. I have done nothing to the trailer. It is just the way I received it. The things that need to be addressed. The water to feed the engine cooling. The engine cowl needs to be reinstalled The trailer brakes need to be repaired and a spare purchased. I will answer and questions that are asked as accurately as possible. I want the new owner to be very happy with this very nice piece of history and wonderful boat! This boat will attract lots of positive attention and be a really neat cruiser. Fiberglass Chris Craft runabouts of this vintage are rare especially in this condition! The price that I have for this boat is a real beating for me but a steal for a new owner. I simply don't have the time to correct the simple problems. I am listing this boat on several outlets so I reserve the right to end this action early. The first to bring me some cash will have this boat. Thanks for your consideration!
