1975 Chris Craft Tournament Fisherman 22’ Temporarily on Hold
The great & justly renowned Dick Anderson designed the original 22’ Chris Craft Dory in 1964 – the first production Center Console – popularizing the whole Center Console “Revolution”!
As Chris Craft produced their last wooden boat in 1972, in 1974 they revived the classic mid 1960’s 22’ lapstrake Dory in fiberglass – as the 22’ Tournament Fisherman. Elegant and beautiful , with a lovely Down East sheer line and lots of freeboard for a safe, dry & very seaworthy ride in all conditions, the Tournament has always been a favorite of mine! By the way, she is particularly nice for the kids with the high gunwales.
This extensive ( and expensive!) multi -year restoration was done by the second owner and features a sweet running fuel injected MerCruiser V-6 (approx 100 hours) that is powerful, quiet & surprisingly economical. Just some of the improvements are new custom teak swim platform, cushions, trim tabs, paint, varnish, fuel tank … there’s a very lengthy list and as a bonus, a 2003 custom fitted aluminum dual axle Continental trailer is also included. The classic Chris Craft mahogany accents & bright work turn heads everywhere & we are proud to offer her for sale for the very first time. More photos & comprehensive info are yours just for the asking!
FYI- A note about tops: This boat was not originally offered with a T-Top or Bimini. My opinion ( and I have many! ), is that I would rather add a Bimini rather than a T-Top. A nice custom Bimini can be made quite easily for well under $500 with full width coverage and up to 8’ in length. Quick release hardware can be used for easy removal. Certainly a very nice way to go without any significant alteration – unlike a T-Top. Personally, I can’t handle too much sun anymore, but it is an easily affordable concern to solve!
