Leigh - Smith Yachts is proud to present the charming 1951 Chris Craft 19' "Pronto" to the market. Following a recent rebuild, "Pronto" presents in flawless condition, being reconstructed with Tasmanian Huon Pine and authentic Fijian Mahogany and sporting a brand-new Chevrolet 350 V8 with less than 10 hours. "Pronto" has a special and complete documented history, with many acclaimed racing victories and a detailed timeline of its life.
This show-stopping gentleman's sport boat offers luxury and high performance in an elegant and prestigious package as a perfect day boat, speed boat or tender.

As you step onboard, you are greeted by the original and Chris-Craft authentic boarding steps laid atop the varnished Fijian Mahogany decks, before you nestle down into the smooth leather cockpits, featuring the original builders' plate and build coin, presented on delivery in 1951, recessed into the curved wooden dashboard amid the Chris-Craft gauges. As the carburetted Chevrolet 350 V8 roars into life, your pace is determined by the restored original throttle lever as you look across the curved bow, reaching speeds in excess of 40 knots, the true top speed remains for you to discover, as the current owner has never given full power.

The re-positioned fuel tank now lays forward of the helm for better weight distribution and handling, however, the original fuel filler caps are left in place at the stern but are permanently closed, with the new functional cap disguised inside the original bow locker vent. The vessel sits on a perfectly fitted trailer for easy stowage and transport.

Being newly rebuilt and scarcely used since, the 1951 Chris Craft 19' "Pronto" is the perfect elegant sports boat, presenting in better than new condition exclusively at Leigh-Smith Yachts, available for immediate delivery.
