1985 Chris-Craft 280 Catalina

Mantoloking, New Jersey



The Chris Craft 280 has proven itself to be a great weekend cruiser.  Built by Chris Craft from 1977 to 1986 she was a mainstay in the small family cruiser market for years.  A comfortable layout, with sleeping for 6, and features such as a full galley and head this model provided great accommodations to give you the comforts of home while out on the water.  The motor in this 280 was rebuilt approximately three years ago and has about 250 hour since rebuild.  A radar arch with rod holders, swim platform and Bimini top are an added bonus.
