Lot 634: 1941 Chris Craft Utility Deluxe


%%wppa%% %%slide=601%% %%size=auto%%

This 1941 Chris Craft 18ft Utility Deluxe was purchased by its second owners, Donny and Rosie, in 1962. This wooden beauty was restored twenty years after its purchase in the 50’s by specialist Bruce Bronson of Bronson Boat Works out of Gig Harbor, WA. Throughout the restoration process close to $40,000 was spent in returning Donny’s Rose to its original glory. Since then, the boat has been stored in a heated facility and has only been taken out on the water a handful of times.

Everything is in perfect working order and ready for the water. Being one of only 408 of these vessels built between 1940 and 1942, this Chris Craft is a truly unique and valuable addition to any collection.

It is fully correct and features the twenty Chris Craft Marine motor. A delight to behold, she belongs with a new owner to create a new legacy for the next 50 years.
