HAWKEYES is a 16ft runabout, built in 1936 by Chris Craft of Michigan, and imported new into the UK at that time.
She retains all original features in the way of engine, deck fitings, dash instrumentation, rare ensign staff and period compass, and the varnish on her exterior appears to have never been fully removed, giving a lovely matured honey coloured patina to her appearance.
Works carried out in recent years include rebuild of her engine in the 2000's, with new cylinder head, exhaust manifold and carburettor, and her bottom planking was re fastened at that time also. Her underwater gear has been renewed, and in 2017 her exterior was re varnished and deck fittings re chromed.
Well known on the classic circuits, she has attended many classic rallies in the UK and Europe over the last 20 years and has been stored undercover at all times when not in use.
She is for sale complete with overall cover and custom bunked trailer.
