1970 Chris Craft XK-19 project boat

Here is a great opportunity to own an Chris Craft XK-19 vintage fiberglass speedboat.  Hull number ORCZ 19 0006 V, the sixth boat of the 55 made in the first year of production, a total of 276 were produced in the total production of the model from 1970 to 1974.  This is a project boat that is partially restored.  Most of the major work is already done.  The hull has been completely rebuilt with additional frames and fiberglass added for strength and the engine stringers have been replaced. All work was done at Macatawa Bay Boat Works.  The boat comes with the original Chris Craft / Corvette 350FLV and Chris Craft / Volvo-Penta outdrive that could be rebuilt.  It also has the original seats, gauges, steering wheel and most deck hardware. 

The boat needs hull paint, interior upholstery, engine and mechanical systems finished, hardware rechromed.  Comes with an older tandem axle trailer that fits the boat well. 

Originally configured as an inboard / outboard, the opening in the transom for the outdrive has been glassed over to give the option of installing a newer I/O unit or reconfigure to a V-drive inboard engine.   We can finish the project for you with the power of your choice and the color of of your choice or you can finish the project yourself. 

We have restored a very similar boat to this, a preceding model called the Chris Craft Commander 19 Super Sport.  Click here to see photo of this boat and how beautiful this design is in the water. 

These vintage fiberglass boats or "fiberglassics" are increasing in value and nice XK-19's are getting harder to find.  Here is one that have been started and done right.  

Sorry, this boat has been SOLD! Call Jon Reus at 269-857-4556 for more information or email: sales@mbbw.com  Please refer to XK-19 or listing number 121 when emailing.  Thank you.
