Most of this text is from the orginal ad, used as place holder.
1963 42' Chris Craft Conqueror, hull #2 of 20 made, "Encore" is a tri-cabin classic yacht with wonderful cruising / live-aboard comfort. S "Encore" has sleeping accommodations for 6 (or more, if the kids bunk on the salon floor or bridge). Her roominess and many amenities make cruising a fun, comfortable adventure.
With new paint on the hull, bottom paint (11/05), and the cabin (06/05), and deck varnish (06/05), Encore is shiny and beautiful. In November 05, her props were balanced, pitched and polished, she was fitted with new zincs, shaft stuffing box packing, engine & genset strainers cleaned, the swim platform was painted and remounted with new heavy-duty stainless steel brackets, her transom was sanded and varnished too! A current bottom survey is available.
Notice her under-water exhaust. She's pretty quiet for 550 horses.
Interior amenities make for comfortable cruising. Kick back, put your feet up, and enjoy the remote control stereo system, the digital Dolby 5.1, surround sound"boat theater." The salon's Flexsteel settee has a comfortable incliner, and hinged door storage underneath.
Encore's galley has a new refrigerator, microwave, electric stove with oven, a large pantry, exhaust fan, and hot and cold running water. The dinette makes into a comfortable double bed with its new foam and upholstery. She has just had new galley and head flooring installed too (5/06)! New photos of the galley remodel will be coming soon.
Guests will sleep comfortably in the forepeak stateroom v-berth,with its own electric head. The bed is big enough to accommodate two adults.
On the bridge, you'll find new blue Sunbrella canvas, GPS, and room for seating for 6. The teak chairs and table pictured are negotiable in the purchase of Encore. On deck you'll find an electric windlass, with 300 feet of anchor chain, lines and fenders. There is a nice seat for sitting or sunbathing with a canvas cover.
