Hello,
I''m in the middle of a refit of a ''65 Chris Craft Capri 30 designed by S&S and I''m interested in hearing any and all details or experiences that others have had with this particular boat. Thanks

Snookums,

I don’t own a Chris Craft 30’, but I did a lot of research on the boat as there was one a few hours away for sale at a great price, and I was very intrigued by it.

Awesome boats, from everything I could find on them!

S&S design, centerboard, and probably overbuilt as well, considering the maker and the vintage.

Would love to hear your thoughts on the boat.

Where did you find it?

Thanks, Bob…

Hi Bob,
I found my boat in Oklahoma on lake of the Cherokee. I''ve stripped the bottom to the glass and found only one blister after almost 40 years. It is an excellent boat and very well built. I''ve done a considerable amount of work to her. Things like aluminum toe rails, all new portholes, five coats of epoxy & two coats of antifouling paint, new winches, new radios (VHS & SSB), new life raft, rebuilt plumbing, wind generator, new battery charger, battery isolators, new voltage regulator & alternator, new bilge pumps, Thru-hulls, manual windlass (has electric windlass), additional ground tackle, rebuilt the Dwyer dinghy and many other items. Do you have a boat? Let me know.
Thanks,
George

George,

Currently I have a Hobie16’, but used to own a 35’ custom steel sailboat, based on a Charles Whitholtz design.
I liked the boat because it was overbuilt to a ridiculous degree, but it sailed like a fat pig!
I like the CC 30’ for the; centerboard; the designer(s) and builder.
It would seem like a perfect cruising boat as they are affordable, well built and seem to have adequate room.
What are your future sailing plans with the boat?
Would love to see some pics if possible.

Bob…

planet9eleven is on a distinguished road
I know this is a really old post but I just purchased a chris craft capri 30 and am about to start restoring the interior. The Hull is in excellent condition as well as the decks and cockpit. The interior has been mostly removed. I would love to here from other owners and possibly any pictures or information would be appreciated. My email is cory at planet9eleven dot com

Thanks so much

Edmond Oklahoma

New Cruiser is on a distinguished road
I too just purchased a 1964 CC Capri 30. Great hull, rebuilt Gray Marine 4 cylinder, soft deck and cabin under construction. We will probably redesign the current cabin back to more of the original design. Needs lots of work, but my wife and I like the look and style of this model. I have heard a lot of pretty good things about the Capri 30. Do you know much about the Gray Marine engine? Looks very basic "old school" technology.
