1947 CHRIS-CRAFT 22' SPORTSMAN  - U22

1947 CHRIS-CRAFT 22' SPORTSMAN - These well known and collectable boats are affectionately referred to as U-22's and were made famous as the boat used in the 1980's movie 'On Golden Pond' with Henry & Jane Fonda.  This one is a light project boat that had most of a restoration completed before the money ran out and it was put into storage.  It now needs further restoration to complete to whatever level desired.  Previous work included Decks refinished, bottom refastened, new fuel tank and upholstery done.  Comes with a Chris-Craft 283 ci - 185 hp FWF V8 engine (non-original).  No Trailer.

**Note - the immediate post war Sportsmans hull sides were typically planked in Spanish Cedar due to the shortage of Mahogany and were painted usually white but with Mahogany varnished decks.  This is one of those boats.

If desired we can quote on a completion of the project through our restoration division -  Boathouse Bay Classics
