Hello and Welcome!
Edit note: This thread is being left as it is, but you can see here I
mistakenly thought Horst had a Cutlass similar to the one we saw in Croatia
a few months ago, but he did indeed, have a fiberglass Capri. Read on, it
gets very interesting........regards, Paul, forum moderator
We only recently became aware of the 20 Cutlass one day when we received photos from Croatia. Then Herb Pocklington, who was in charge of Chris Craft European operations sent us a brochure photo, and he said that particular boat was produced in small quantities because it did not sell well, but served well as a "bridge product" or a stepping stone to another similar model.
Not many were built, and therefore not many remain. Your boat serial number suggests it is #25, but I don't know how many others were built. With 230 horsepower it would be a lot of fun. In addition, the look, style, and function of this model would make it of interest virtually anywhere it would appear, either at a boat show or out front of a high end yacht club.
We don't have much on this model but we will share what we have. We do have a lot of info about the motor and drivetrain. Looking forward to seeing your photos,
