Overview & Awards

Miss Caroline is a totally restored classic, representing one of the finest examples of the all fiberglass Chris-Crafts first introduced in the 1964 New York Boat Show. Rechristened in 2012 after an 18-month restoration, she features a custom two-stateroom layout, galley down and expansive bridge deck capable of comfortably seating 12 guests.

Her fresh Awlgrip Stars & Stripes Blue hull and Matterhorn White deck and cabin draws appreciative attention wherever she cruises. Professionally surveyed in 2011, she will satisfy the most discerning yachtsman who desires a one-of-a-kind pocket yacht.

Miss Caroline has a spacious cockpit with a large lazarette storage compartment accessed by a hydraulically operated hatch. A new custom built fiberglass and mahogany forward-facing bench seat provides convenient storage for dock lines and other equipment. Stainless port and starboard gates provide safe access and egress dockside and her drop-down transom door provides safe access to the teak swim platform.

In 2014, Miss Caroline received the TMNostalgia Award at the prestigious Ocean Reef Vintage Weekend competing with classic yachts such as Huckins, Trumpy, Elco, etc. In 2015, she was the subject of a major article in Showboats International magazine as well as a prominent mention in Southern Boating magazine.
