History of the Vessel

The 24 foot Sportsman model was put into production based on the success of the Chris Craft Sportsman U-22 and the prewar 25 foot Sportsman. Only 149 of the 24 foot Sportsman models were built between 1959 and 1960, a very short production run. Most of the 24 Sportsmans were built with a single-engine configuration.

This example was well-optioned with twin Chris Craft 283cid, 185hp engines. No soak replacement bottom, engines rebuilt in 2015, and fresh varnish completed in 2018, "Class of '59" is a great example that has been well maintained.

Her original black and tango red interior is in fantastic shape. This is a very sociable design that can accommodate up to 8 comfortably for cocktail cruising and entertaining!
