I am restoring a 1957 Sports-Kraft "Habana Express" and looking for original or restoration pics of the boat for a guideline for my restoration. Any and all help is appreciated.

Not much out there besides some ads at The Classic Boathouse and this one in an old forum post:

I found some pics of a Habana Express that was available in Oklahoma years ago. Also some pics from a couple Sports-Kraft ads, 1957/58. I hope they are of some help.

Two other examples of your model have turned up as to my knowledge and both were advertised as 1959's. Photos can be found at the Classic Boat House ( theclassicboathouse.com/galleryaluminum.html ), and below I attached a few more of the blue and white boat from the original ebay listing.

We have the model information from 1959 to 1960 for Sports Kraft from a 1962 Red Book price guide:

Hi thanks for the info. I could not find a vin# on the boat anywhere for even a clue of the year. I was thinking early 60s so 59 fits good. I plan to restore the boat next winter and pull it behind my 61 corvair van that I am currently restoring. This site is a very good resource Thanks........Dan

Gentlemen,
My father-in-law gave my wife his boat a couple of years ago. I'm just now getting a chance to do research on it and after pouring over the internet for hours, I came across this blog. I know that it's a long shot because y'all posted 6 1/2 years ago but I figured I'd try since I thought our boat might be the last of its kind. My email is my username; please feel free to reach out so we can share information.
