A Once In A Life Time Opportunity On A 46' Connie
Perhaps the nicest 46‘ Chris-Craft Constellation in existence today is offered for sale and her owners are motivated. M/V "Finale" is in top form and always kept undercover. The love affair for her current owners is coming to an end and the new owners will be smitten with her condition, machinery, and overall maintenance history. There have been countless stories told and awards that have been presented over the last 34 years that her owners have enjoyed and are very proud of.
The story truly begins in 1965 when Elwood Smith, grandson of Christopher Columbus Smith, founder of Chris-Craft had many personal touches added during the production of this very special yacht. Most notably, the hardtop is longer and wider than standard. Elwood didn't fish and didn't like to be in the sun so he ordered the hardtop of a 52' be installed on his 46-footer. He also chose the interior stain "Cordova" instead of "Walnut" and the gates on the forward deck are not standard. The mast is of standard design but not for this boat and the brightwork was kept to a minimum as he did not want to keep up with all the varnishing.
M/V "Finale" is powered by the original fresh water-cooled 427 V8 gas engines and both have been overhauled and have over 4000 hours and they are in superb condition today. The original 6.5 Kohler light plant is running beautifully and a full complement of Garmin electronics including HD radar makes navigating and breeze.
Her complete history and details on re-planking in 2014/2015 are available and we will be glad to address any questions. We have over 95 hi-resolution images to review and the original blueprints will be included as well as countless spare parts. In the true spirit of keeping this Chris-Craft in as close to original condition as possible anything that was removed is available and will be included with the purchase of this vessel. Well over $200K has been spent in the last 20 years to ensure she is ready to untie and head back to the Bahamas, around the Florida Keys or to once again visit Lady Liberty in NY harbor.
