1959 Chris Craft Capri 19ft
Restored, Rebuilt 283 V8, Beautiful Classic Boat!
We are pleased to present this beautiful classic 19ft Chis Craft Capri, imported from California in 2008 where it had been enjoyed on Lake Tahoe, then professionally restored by Bristol Classic Boatyard in 2010. This work included a new bottom, restored and re varnished top and full rebuild of the original 283 4.7L V8 engine which has seen low hours since rebuild. Total restoration cost in excess of £20,000. This particular Chris Craft model was built from 1955 to 1961 which makes it a rare and collectable example. It has appeared at several classic boat events since restoration but has seen only light use on Lake Windermere, where it was awarded best new comer in the British Motor Boat Association event held there, and also a short stint in the Bristol Channel. It’s been dry stored for the past few years and is now being offered for sale due to lack of time to continue enjoying it. Complete with almost new, very high quality double axle trailer (£4,000 new) and full strap down boat cover. Records and invoices of restoration work on file as well as boat safety certificate and import documents.
