Boat Reviews By Owners
1969 -- 38' 0" CHRIS CRAFT
Cockpit: Inside helm or flying bridge with 360 degree view. Outstanding fishing platform and for ease of docking
Cabin: Main saloon, Down galley, head and spacious v-bearth. dining area sleeps two more on bunks and main saloon couch folds out into a double bed
Construction: All early chris crafts were built like tanks. No problems with fiberglass blisters or delamination. No bulkhead construcion allows plenty of usable space.
Handling: Even with the thick fiberglass hull, the boat will plane out easily and can achieve speeds as high as 25 kts.
Engine Room: Two Crusader 454's really push the boat well but at the cost of a few bucks in gas. The Crusader engine is very easy to maintain and easy to find parts for
General Comments: I could not have picked a better boat for a first time live aboard. I have plent of space for my bachelor lifestyle as well as take a few friends fishing or diving. This boat has seen 10 - 12 foot seas in the northern Carribean and handled them with ease.
