    Default What model is this Chris Craft ?

    I think the year is 1960 or 1961, but no other information since the owner passed away, the widow has no clue nor cannot find any documents...


    Overall dimension is 27'8''. The nameplate says X 27



    Cavalier, Constellation or Sea Skiff ??? I am confused...!

    I am certainly no Chris Craft expert, but there were lots of them around here (Detroit area) when I was a kid. From my casual observation back then, the Cavaliers were plywood, the Connies were planked, and the Sea Skiffs were lapstrake. There were other models as well.
