1957 CORRECT CRAFT, 15FT SPECIAL SKI BOAT, FULLY RESTORED, SHOW WINNER
WITH MATCHING TRAILER, MUSEUM QUALITY, MINT CONDITION
You are looking at what I consider a once in a life time opportunity to purchase a vintage world class ski boat that has been restored to perfection. When I first looked at this boat I was at a loss for words. The finish inside, under neath, and on the outside including the engine and engine compartment make you feel like you just traveled back 50 years in time because of how new it looks. It has the original 70hp Graymarine engine that runs great. All of the hardware prop, rudder, instrument panel, steering wheel, hinges and cushions look like new. This boat has won more than one show of its class and has been autographed by Ralph Meloon heir to the great Walter C. Meloon founder of Correct Craft in 1925. His modus was to build world class towboats “To the Glory of God” and if this is how they looked back then at the dealerships that sold them I would have owned one (I’m to young). We purchased this boat from the gentleman that restored it and it has never been in salt water. He kept the trophies for memories and we have stored it in the garage ever since we purchased it. As you can see in the pictures every detail has been perfectly restored including the trailer. The original Graymarine maintenance hand book comes with it. It has a Florida title and registration and a parts catalogue for old wood boats included.
