in Racine, WI

Seller note:

This vessel is one of the most famous and classic boats that Chris Craft has ever designed, and with probably the best layout ever seen in an aft cabin boat.
Two full private staterooms, each with a private head and each with a centerline island bed and the master stateroom even has a real bathtub!
The  bridge area is on one level, so  the skipper can pilot the boat and still be with family and friends.
You will not believe the ease of moving around the side decks and even the foredeck, and the wide, safe walkways make docking and anchoring a breeze. Even getting on or off the boat at the dock has never been so easy on an aft cabin boat.  With the low wide walkways , tall stainless stations  and cables, which go completely around the boat, you no longer need to worry whenever someone needs to go outside forward or aft.
The spacious interior of the boat strikes you immediately as you go below.
There are large opening windows in the salon allowing for openness and bright light.
There is a generous built in L-shaped breakfast bar facing the galley in the port forward corner of the salon.
There is a sliding access door along the port side where you can enter or exit the salon from the dock without going up and out over the aft deck.
All of the cushions on the settee have been recently recovered and accommodates five guests plus a leather recliner.
The salon floor is carpeted, while the galley has wood parquet for beauty and ease of maintenance.
There is a built in microwave, a three burner stove plus oven.
A newer Norcold refrigerator with freezer, a recently rebuilt 2011 ice make, hot and cold pressure water and a stainless steel sink are all located in the galley.
When you go forward to the guest stateroom, you find a centerline double berth, with lots of storage built in along starboard side and under the berth. There is a private head with shower along the port side.
It is a wonderful guest stateroom, making this a great boat for cruising with two couples.
The aft master stateroom features a California King sized centerline island bed, with a SELECT COMPFORT MATERESS, a full head with a REAL BATHTUB AND SHOWER.
There are generous windows on 3 sides of this stateroom, lots of lights and mirrors making this a very light and airy room.
There is an amazing amount of storage below the berth and built in along both sides of the stateroom for everything you could possibly need, with two walk-in closets.
This vessel has reverse heat and air so comfort is automatically controlled. .
The screened aft deck enclosure  is removable and accommodates eight guests and the Captain so no one is left outside while cruising.
The windless is remote controlled so no one is required to be in the weather for mooring.
This vessel is also equipped with stainless davits for your inflatable , jet ski, dingy,  etc.
The engine room provides head room and the space required to crawl around the 20 gallon water heater , the two- v/eight engines, and the generator, plus storage.
