Another one ...


Another 63 footer, not quite as nice as the one before ...

"Up for auction is a vintage Sterling 63' Chris Craft Constellation receiver ready wooden cabin cruiser.

The boat is all there, floats and goes. Just add your receiver, 6 cell NiMh/NiCd, and ballast.

It had a LED lighting system installed (pictured) that will need to be re-hung from the ceiling of the main cabin.

The boat will run as is, but would not suffer from a restore or refresh.

Included is a bag of parts that have come off over the years."

The case that Scout is in, is well worth the 300 starting bid.

Harco 40 !!!


WOW !

This is a rare one, hope some one here gets it and posts the build !!

"Sterling Harco 40 ' Deluxe Cabin Cruiser ,Vintage , in the box!"

"You are bidding on a very old ( I would guess from the late 40's or earliy 1950's boxed Sterling model boat kit . I can not say if all the parts are here but its wood so anything missing can be remade easily. I do see that all the lead hardware is not there , just has the box they came in and I do think you can find these on the internet."

REMEMBER WHEN--- Sterling Models was still in business and toward the end of their existents, everyone was bad mouthing the company about how lousy their kits were. They would remark that they would never buy another one?

Boy how times have changed, now anyone with a stash of kits is like having a IRA. Just as the classic boats of the golden age of boating are now sought after buy collectors and the focal point of numerous boat shows around the country, so are the model boat kits of the classics from the old manufacturers being searched out and copied.

Kind’ a makes my heart sing to see the rebirth of interest in the classics.
