urn-key 14ft 1958 ChrisCraft Barracuda classic speedboat / runabout. Imported around 1962 from Kentucky, USA.

All paint removed and refinished with sides painted and deck varnished with multiple coats of Epifanes, to a high standard. -

Period style 1971 Evinrude SkiTwin 40hp electric start, shortshaft motor and remote controller fitted.
The motor is a low hour, freshwater engine, about 43 and 40hp at the powerhead. These are easy to service and spares are readily available here in the UK. These motors can use synthetic and completely biodegradable TCW-3 oils at 50:1 ratio. Used sparingly; always garaged and cared for by a CMBA committee member. Renewed varnish and motor resprayed in 2017 (more motor pics available).

This is a special, pretty and useful classic wood boat. It is easily towable by a small family car, and can be stored in a conventional UK-sized garage. Very, very rare to find on this side of the Atlantic.
