This auction is for a nice freshwater used 1939 15 ft Chris Craft with 90 hp Chris Craft Model K Hercules inboard.  The 1961 Tee Nee bunk trailer trailer shown is included in the sale.  The trailer is in great shape and recently made a 140 mile trip with no problems.  We are listing this boat on consignment and representing it in completely as-is condition with a fair reserve. We have included 168 large pictures below the ad to show you as much detail as possible as well as a brief description of condition.  You are welcome to and we encourage you inspect the boat in person if you wish to do so.  It is located in Old Saybrook Ct, 06475 and is available anytime by appointment.

This 1939 Chris Craft 15 that has only had two owners since new.  The original owner was a professional water skier and upgraded the power from the original 4 cylinder to the larger 6 cylinder back when the boat was fairly new.  The original owner also glassed the bottom supposedly for speed purposes.  The current and second owner has owned the boat since around 1970 and has only used the boat in Candlewood lake in Connecticut.  It is registered in New York as that's where the owners permanent residence was.  We were told that the boat was always garage kept when not being used and it looks by the original condition that it was.   The boat appears to be very original and the owner stated that it was with the exception of the steering wheel and throttle.  It was in a garage when we picked it up and the owner stated it hasn't been run in many years but ran well when put away.  We did turn the engine over by hand and it spun over very easily.  It shifted into forward , neutral and reverse well but the linkage seamed a little stiff from sitting.  The steering works well but was slightly stiff as well.   The linkages and gear all look very intact and original.   Overall this boat looks to be as original and unmolested as you can expect to find a 75 year old boat. 

The trailer is a 1961 Tee Nee bunk model and is in great shape.  The frame, axle, tires and springs are in good solid shape. The tires hold air well and the bearings are fine.  We are unsure if the lights work.  We towed this boat to our shop over 140 miles with no problems.  The pictures are current and the boat is being sold as is in the condition shown. The boat is currently being stored indoors. You are welcome to come to our shop and inspect the boat anytime prior to auctions end.  We are located in Old Saybrook, Connecticut and open by appointment.  Please feel free to call us with any specific questions at (860)510-2623.

 At the end of the auction the winning bidder will need to send us a $200.00 Pay-Pal deposit and contact us within 24 hours by phone or email to discuss payment/pick up with us

 We have state of New York registration certificates for the boat and trailer ready to transfer.  The boat will need to be paid for in full and picked up within one week of auction ending unless you have made other arrangements with us.  We are available to deliver it anywhere for $2.50 per hauled mile if needed.  Please feel free to contact us by e-mail or call (860)510-2623 with any questions.   The auction will end on Friday night at 9:00pm EST.  This boat is for sale locally so please feel free to contact us if you are seriously interested in purchasing before the auctions end.  Thanks for looking and good luck bidding!
