Re: Help Identifying this Boat

Why don't you ask? Marina may know and the owners probably know.

Oh no!

The Key West City employees are no one to ask questions.

I just got home from work and saw this boat for sale on Craigslist.
The same markings on the bow in question.
Craigslist ad says 30' Sparkman Stevens.

It's in Florida Keys Craigslist but located in St Augustine.

That must be it.

Any comments about this boat?

Re: Help Identifying this Boat

I'd be pretty surprised if thats an S&S design (judging by the stern). That arrow design is pretty common and comes in many different forms.

I'm sorry....
If I would have read further I would have seen that it is a Chris Craft Capri.

Does look like a s&s with that stern. Looks a little more like a bristol

Re: Help Identifying this Boat

That stern has no overhang, or pinch, at all... Take another look at bristols and S&S's

Re: Help Identifying this Boat

If sailors would just put the name of the manufacturer on the side of their boats like this then things would be a lot easier.

Re: Help Identifying this Boat

The triple C's logo is Chris Craft. They look like arrows on port side. But on the starboard side the "arrows" are pointing backwards, because they are actually three C's.

It's a Chris Craft of some model. Capri, Commander, etc, they like the model name to be a C also.

Just to confuse things, the Capri is a power boat as well. (with a Chrysler Hemi opiton!)

And the sailboat data link shows a 64 model Capri sailboat that looks very similar for the hull shape. But the ports are totally different. So, I'm thinking this could just be a different year model with more conventional ports.

Re: Help Identifying this Boat

The Chris Craft Capri was sold in kit form. That may explain the "unique" ports.

Yeah, lots of junk in that trunk

I feel like I've seen that stern somewhere, but I just can't place it. I was thinking Grampian, or some oddball choey lee, or something... but still can't find anything like it.
There's a lot of flat sterns out there, but not with that deep sheerline...

Bash I went and looked at all chris crafts for sale and didn't find any that had that stern or port lights. Of course the port lights could have been an option. Can't say I have ever seen a stern like that.
