Broker's Comments

This 1960 36 Constellation Express represents Chris-Craft at its finest. This boat did win the "People's Choice" award in the 2011 local Chris-Craft Rendezvous. From the gleaming varnished mahogany, polished chrome details, flawless teak deck, to the modern engines you will find this a true classic that will bring years of pride and joy. Current additions and improvements in part include new plastic holding tank, new head, full cockpit enclosure, new starter, electronic ignition, transmissions rebuilt, exhaust elbows and mufflers, new granite counter tops.
Anyone who is at all attracted to classic Chris-Crafts can't help but be drawn to this lovely lady.

(special note: in the video this boat is identified as a 38' Chris Craft but in fact it is a 36' and there is no "privacy door to the V-berth which also is mentioned.)
