1983 Chris Craft 381 Aft Cabin ......
Sold - Call us to list or search for similar boats

Carver 355 Aft cabin waiting impatiently at the dock  One of the most famous and classic boats that Chris Craft has ever designed.  And with probably the best layout ever seen in an aft cabin boat.  Two full private staterooms, each with a private head and each with a centerline island bed.    The master stateroom even has a real bathtub!

And with the entire bridge area all on one level, the skipper can pilot the boat and still be with their family Click here for larger view of 381 salonand friends. And you will not believe the ease of moving around the the side decks and even the foredeck.  Wide, safe walkways make docking and anchoring a breeze.  Even getting on or off the boat at the dock has never been so easy on an aft cabin boat, with the low wide walkways and tall rails which go completely around the boat.  You no longer need to worry whenever someone needs to go forward.

The spacious interior of the boat strikes you immediately as you go below.  The huge open salon with large opening windows lining each side give such an air of light and openness. There is a generous built in L-shaped along the starboard and aft walls of the salon .....  and a small breakfast bar faces the galley in the port forward corner of the salon.  There is an access door along the port side where you can even enter or exit the salon from the dock without going up and out over the aft deck.

All of the cushions on the settee have been recently recovered.  And there are two new matching stools at the bar for additional seating.

The salon floor is carpeted, while the galley has a nice wood parquet for beauty and ease of maintenance.  There is a built in microwave, a three burner stove with a power vent installed over the cooking surface, a Norcold refrigerator with freezer, hot and cold pressure water and a S.S. sink in the bar countertop.

When you go forward to the guest stateroom, you find a centerline double berth, with lots of storage built in along starboard side and under the berth.  There is a private head with shower along the port side.  It is a wonderful guest stateroom, making this a great boat for cruising with two couples.

And the aft master stateroom features a large queen sized centerline island bed, a full head with a real bathtub with a shower!   There are generous windows on 3 sides of this stateroom, lots of lights and mirrors making this a very light and airy room.  There is an amazing amount of storage built in along both sides of the stateroom for everything you could possibly need.

The Bridge ...... and the aft deck
The bridge is well designed with room for the the skipper and guests to sit together on the combined bridge and aft deck.  It is equipped with a full bimini and full enclosure, with roll up windows with screens for the exact protection that desire in any conditions. There is a huge built in wrap around settee along the starboard and aft rails.  There is a ton of storage under the settee.

The helm itself is forward and to starboard with a full set of electronics and an adjustable helm seat.  A small built in bench and room for deck chairs are along the port side.   A great place to entertain.

And the foredeck features a large built in bench across the front that easily seats 4 or more adults.  And with the wide side decks it is easy to access even underway.
