Fifty plus years later it is among the most highly coveted of the famed Chris-Crafts, and thanks to the model masters at Dumas, you can own one in miniature. In keeping with the Dumas tradition of Chris-Craft kits, this model features a doubled planked PVC and mahogany veneer hull, preformed plastic seats, chrome fittings, and complete set of running hardware. Color decals and flag and burgee helps set off the model.
