Numbers matching museum quality restoration

Between the years of 1951 and 1953 Chris Craft introduced the 19 Foot Holiday. A total of 384 boats were made employing the use of two-tone woods. Because of the style of the bottom these boats are best served on small to medium sized lakes. This boat has been very well restored and has a unique teak floor installed as well as custom upholstery. It has been upgraded to a 12 Volt system and has a shore power outlet, a no soak bottom which was installed in 2014 and a bilge blower. The varnish is like new and ready for a season of fun boating on the water. The boat also has a freshwater washout such that no salt water could ever sit in the motor. Over 50K has been invested in the restoration and ongoing maintenance of this boat. Lastly the Chris Craft KLC engine has been rebuilt and provides 130Lbs of pressure per cylinder. The trailer was new 4 years ago.
