1952 CHRIS CRAFT CHALLENGER 42'. Mahogany hull, bronze fastenings. Owner says, "I bought the boat from a friend that was using it as a live aboard in Ventura, CA. She had a leak that was due to some worm damage. Consequently, she had trouble with her insurance company and could not afford to dry dock the boat and have it properly repaired. She agreed to sell me the boat, and I arranged to have it hauled to my property. I had a partner that was willing to do the necessary repairs for 50% interest in the boat. The partner never completed the repairs. I then listed the boat with a yacht broker in Marina Del Rey. He was unable to find a buyer. I know very little about boats, but at this point was worried about the time a wooden boat had spent out of the water (5 years). It is a rare and beautiful boat and I really hope someone can restore and enjoy it. Thanks for your help!"

Survey says she's powered by twin 6-cylinder 140hp Detroit Diesels, model 518 3932. Survey also says she's 40'. Original marketing material says her beam is 12' and her draft is 2' 9". Freeboard, fore and aft, 74" and 54 1/2". Bottom, double-planked , 1". Headroom 6' 4". Aft master stateroom.

Hi David,
Sadly, the boat had to be scrapped. Long story. Thanks for all your help. You really helped to generate a lot of interest. Mike did his best but she was just too far gone. Engines, transmissions, and fuel tanks are available if your people are at all interested. Let me know. Thanks again. - Tenna
