1927 22′ Chris Craft Cadet

1927   22’ Chris Craft Cadet        22’   $34,900  SOLD!

The 26’ Triple Cockpit runabout was Chris Crafts first “production” boat, built from 1922 thru 1930. In 1927 Chris Craft introduced the 22’ “Cadet”, essentially a shortened version of the 26 but virtually identical in layout & interior space. It soon became as popular as her bigger sister, and like the 26, this hull was used for yacht tenders & racers as well, built from 1927 thru 1931. By the way, the Cadet was the first boat that could be purchased in installments! As always, Chris Craft was ahead of their time.

Exceptionally well-preserved example of the “Golden Age” of boating. Multiple award-winning boat, with George Shinn restored Chrysler EM Imperial engine that runs like a watch. New gauges, wiring and aluminum fuel tank added during restoration done by Dockside Boatworks. The triple cockpit was the pinnacle of luxury and speed back in the day and still garners A LOT of attention wherever she goes, this all mahogany beauty is the talk of the lake or river. Powered by a completely restored Chrysler EM Imperial flathead six, she will cruise at a comfortable 20mph with a top speed of 30mph. Originally a Michigan boat she is exceptionally well preserved and has been used by the current owner  every season for the past 11 years without incident. “Pearl” comes with a galvanized tandem axle trailer, mooring cover, full waterline travel cover and a flannel inner liner. All historical documentation is included.

I believe this to be the best one on the market in this price range and an absolutely lovely example of the “Gatsby” age.  More photos and history are available. Take a close look at “Pearl” folks, it is a favorite of mine & we are encouraging offers as well… you will not be disappointed!

By the way, I learned to water ski behind my Grandfather’s Cadet over 50 years ago!
