1961 CHRIS CRAFT CONSTELLATION 32'. Beam 11'6". Mahogany hull. Twin inboard gas Chevys 185hp with 1040 hours. Accessories include radio, compass, depth finder, engine synchronizer. Owner says, "This is a project boat, however, the transom frame work is complete and I have all new mahogany planking to finish this part. I have completed the cabin side window framing. 95% of the chrome has been rechromed. I had the outer teak trim around the cabin duplicated by the Amish; it is ready to be fit and installed. I have removed the rear hull planks on the starboard side, (not because of rot) and plan to do the same to the port side. I did this because the ends of the planks were rounded from years of sanding and I felt it would look better where the planks meet at the transom edge. I have new mahogany for both port and starboard sides as well. Any time I have taken anything apart or anything I have replaced has been generously treated with CPES. I have purchased Reed and Prince screws to use on the rear deck trim when I reassemble it. I have the original owners manual.

"My goal was and still is to keep her as original as possible. The engines have been winterized and I put oil in the all cylinders, however the engines have not been cranked for several years. It has always been stored under a green house type frame work with a tarp stretched over the framing. I feel the rechrome, mahogany planking, engines, hydraulic transmissions are worth the asking price. I will consider a reasonable offer. I purchased this boat in 1991. I wanted a wooden Chris Craft Cruiser. I chose this particular boat because it was still mostly original. The rear deck and inside cabin are still varnished. I do not have the time to work on the boat anymore as my job requires too much of my time. I am hoping to find a person who appreciates wooden boats and will complete the boat and keep it as original as I have." Asking $6500. Contact Don at...
