Well here is my new to me 25' Chris Craft Tournament Fisherman. It is 25'x 9'9". Power comes from twin 181FL 140hp inboards. She needs some new interior in the cuddy and needs the motors installed. But it has a pretty cool layout.

Nice,place to lock up your gear and plenty of real estate in the stern to battle fish from with the engines located forward. Do you have the drive train or is it a do it your selfer ? Unless you plan on spending the night on it I would not invest too much on the new interior.

It comes with the motors and transmissions and is 99% there. Has a sink, built in cooler, tons of storage. It has a toilet and v-birth in the cuddy, and bench seats in front of each of the consoles that turn into a queen size bed. We have 5 kids, and the fiance likes to sun bathe so I'll have to at least do the cuddy and seat cushions. Probably just get some lounge chairs in the back when out pleasure boating.

She was used as a drug runner back in the 80's, then a DEA agent bought it at an auction and brought it from Florida to Port Townsend, WA. It then made its way here to North Idaho. Pretty rare boat anyway but haven't seen anything close to this layout up this way.

Think I'll have to rename her though. "REEFER MADNESS" isn't going to work for me. Was thinking either "SMUGGLERS BLUES", OR "OFF THE HOOK".

Finally got the boat home. Gotta clean her up a bit and fix the hole in the deck. Engines are finished, need to reseal the paragons. Then the real cosmetic work begins.

I fixed your pic Nick, not sure why it didn't show up in your post. Man, that's a lot of boat! Looking forward to seeing more pics as you get her seaworthy..... ;)

I found your post on the 25 Chris Craft. Did you finish it?. I also have 2 of them, a 77 for sale with the windshield and 74 with no windshield, v6's. Love the boat and the style. Pics for you attached.
