1930 Chris Craft Triple Cockpit

You have to love some good wood, and this 1930 Chris Craft Triple Cockpit is just that. This vintage wooden boat is “Completely Restored and Better than New”. It’s Florida based wood that’s exceptionally photogenic and the book-matched Mahogany looks the part.

This Chris Craft features a No-Soak bottom which is always nice. A classic runabout with new gauges, new chrome, etc.  My favorite part of this boat up for sale however is that it has “modern power for reliability”, but the seller fails to mention a single additional detail on the engine. When I say “favorite” I mean “least appealing”.  I get that you might want someone to contact you for more information, but give me a reason. When I see zero details on something as important as the damn engine then I usually move along. I like boats, cars, trucks, hell even lawnmowers. Anything that burns gas peaks my interest. I beg you though, tell me what the hell I’m going to burn that fuel with. Sure you can figure it out from the pictures for the most part, but we all know how lazy people are.  JUST TELL US IN THE DETAILS. 

Regardless it’s still a fully restored 1930 Chris Craft. Most wooden boats I check out come in around the ’50s era, so something a little older is certainly cool. Trust me I don’t have $75,000 sitting around to “Buy It Now” but that doesn’t mean I can’t drool over the photos.
