UPDATE 3/23:  STILL AVAILABLE, but the clock is ticking on this classic Chris Craft.  Owner says that the landlord is willing to rent the space, so the boat can stay where it is now. 

1947 CHRIS CRAFT CHALLENGER EXPRESS CRUISER 40'. Hull No. X0-40-007 (or possibly XC-40-007). Owner says, "Ordered as a commuter and delivered to Lawrence Folbotes at the dealership, Chris Craft Motor Yacht Sales, 60th Street, New York, NY on November 29, 1947. I have the build sheet from the factory. Two of the most prominent options were the forward cockpit "couch" and the aft "doghouse" cabin complete with its own toilet and sink..."

"Most hardware has been removed from the boat for safe storage and will be relinquished to new owner ..."

"Over $40,000 estimated to be invested over the last 20 years..."

Asking "FREE to a Good Home."  (CT)
