Tradition won best Chris-Craft in 2008 at Hessel, Michigan.
This 1939 24′ Chris Craft Utility is a rare boat–one of seven built in 1939. This boat was completely restored including a new 5200 bottom, new double-planked, ribbon grain topsides, new double-planked decks.
This boat has a single exhaust 350 Chris Craft engine, completely rebuilt by CD’s Engine Service of Hudsonville, MI. It originally came with a Model K. “Tradition” has a custom dual axle trailer with a folding tongue which allows it to be stored in most garages. This boat is a big water boat that handles the waves without a problem and with the extra free board offered by the Utility hull it is very dry. It comes with a dust cover and is stored indoors. Fresh water use only! A Michigan boat its entire life. It has the optional jump seat and there is plenty of room for entertaining and taking guests out on the lake.
The boat underwent a three year restoration with no expense spared. It has electronic ignition and runs on a 12 volt system. This model is one of the last years of the flat folding windshield models. She just received three coats of varnish on the decks and topsides and the bottom has just been painted.
This is hull # 1 of the 7 made. This was the first boat of this model made…. !
