This 1959 Chris-Craft was the first year that 283 V-8 engines were installed. This boat is in very good shape with very little changes to the orignal factory specifications. It has always been in Iowa and only used in fresh water. I am the 4th owner of the boat and have all of the orignal paperwork and factory building spec sheets for it. It has been used very little since I have owned it. Custom fit trailer was built in 2006 for this boat that is in very good condition. There is a very nice canvas cover that was custom made to cover the entire boat.
