Chris Craft 19 Racing Runabout

Chris Craft is a symbol in the history of pleasure boating. In fact, this American shipyard was active in the production of beautiful runabout motorboats even before Carlo Riva came onto the scene. Already in the Thirties of XX century, it developed a production of some models considered real jewels made in wood. The boat in question is a rare example produced in 1949 and restored (with no budget limits by the current owner) in two years by expert shipwrights on the Elba Island. The major restoration work (bottom, sides, deck, new seats) required no less than 3200 hours of work to obtain a real work of art. All the materials used (hardware, screws, linoleum) were purchased originally in the United States. The engine and instruments were sent to the USA for restoration. Compared to the original version,are changed the following elements:
blue deck and side colours instead of the traditional red; closed stern cockpit with a locker.
Once the restoration was completed, the boat participated only in 2 meetings (ASDEC in Venice and Lake Maggiore) and then stored in a shed covered by the canvas. Before returning to the water, the mechanics and the wooden part need to be checked. The boat is equipped with 2 canvas covers, cushions, fenders and original ski pole.
