The engines in this boat are original equipment 6 cylinder flat head Hercules purchased from Chris-Craft for Stephens Bros in 1956. They have not been rebuilt. One is strong and runs fine while the other has some overheating problems. The owners are having it professionaly evaluated to determine the cause and fix. At this time we have to assume this engine will need some repair and therefore can be considered in negotiations. There are no hour meters. Horsepower on these engines is reported to be anywhere from 120 to 145 depending on which resource is accessed.
The boat has two 12 volt batteries (one for each engine as a starting battery) and four 6 volt batteries in the house bank.
Although the flybridge controls are all in place and look reasonably sound, the transmission shifting levers don't function from that location as they are push button electric from the main helm. These could be repaired, or the flybridge could be used for outdoor seating in port instead of for boat operation underway.
