Cruise in style while heads turn to look.  This beauty has extensive upgrades without defeating the original design and Chris Craft’s “woody” charm.  Her November 2021 survey is available in our office for your review.  She has a double-planked bottom with single planks topside with seam battens.  In the words of the 2019 survey:

The hull was inspected in all accessible areas from the inside by probing, sounding, and visual observation. No defects were found in the hull or deck.  The timber keel is straight and undamaged. Plank seams are tight in both the topsides and bottom and tight to the frames. Hull is considered sound and in “Very Good” condition.  Multiple screws were exposed and inspected.  The bottom planking was refastened with stainless steel wood screws between 2011 and 2016 along with several plank repairs.  The exposed screws were inspected and found to be of an appropriate size and “Like New” condition.

A Raymarine EV100 Autopilot was installed by the current owners in 2019.  Her 2016 VW TDI diesel with 165 hp has less than 300 hours.  She carries 100 gallons of diesel fuel in 2 50-gal. aluminum tanks (not original).

Her electrical system is quite new, with a 30-amp shore power connection, new inverter/charger, GFCI outlets, new batteries, and updated breaker panels.

The Garmin 741xs touch-screen radar/plotter is mounted for easy use, along with a Garmin knot log, recent VHF radio, Ritchie compass, and the Raymarine auto-pilot.

3 Rule bilge pumps keep the bilge areas very dry.  The galley to starboard has a single SS sink with hot and cold pressure water.  And, a Volrath AC/DC frig/freezer unit below the counter.

Heating is from the cooling system on the engine with forced air throughout the vessel.

Additional berthing has been achieved by the current owners with a simple extension to the port-side settee (see photos).  Engine access is beneath the settee/bunk unit in the aft section of the main salon and via deck hatch on the exterior aft deck.

“Stella” was hauled in September 2023 for some minor touch-up work, zincs, and bottom paint (3 coats of AF 33 antifouling paint).

Additionally, her covered moorage is readily assumable with purchase.
