1987 Chris-Craft 500 Constellation
Boat Type: Motor Yacht Address: Ixtapa, MX Price: $95,000

Overview

Here is a comfortable get-away in a resort location for under US$100,000 Marina Ixtapa has beautiful ammenities and is nearby an International Airport (ZIH) with Direct Flights daily to Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Toronto and Montreal.
From: The Powerboat Guide -The Chris 500 MY has a fairly complex history. She has her roots
in the 1977 introduction of the Pacemaker 46 MY, a classic David
Martin design with handsome lines and for the late 1970's a
very luxurious interior. Following Pacemaker's bankruptcy in 1980,
Uniflite acquired the tooling and resumed producing the 46 in 1981
as the Uniflite 46 Motor Yacht. By late 1983 Uniflite designers had
stretched the mold 4 feet to create the Uniflite
50 Motor Yacht. It was a short production run because Uniflite
closed the following year. Chris Craft then acquired the molds and
in 1985 the 500 Constellation MY was introduced essentially
the same boat with no major changes. For those who admire the
traditional styling of a flush-deck yacht, the 500 has much to offer.
A lot of living space is available in her three-stateroom floorplan,
including a fully enclosed and paneled aft deck that serves as a
second salon. Unlike many flush-deck yachts, the flybridge is large
enough to accommodate a small crowd. A good running boat with
a comfortable ride, the 500 MY has a cruising speed of 16
knots with standard 550hp GM 6V92 diesels.
