Niceville, FL

The Chris Craft 426 is a large, roomy vessel that's perfect for cruising or as a live-aboard. For those who like "home-like accommodations" the double stateroom arrangement is ideal with walk-around queen beds in each and en-suite heads. Separating the staterooms is a very comfortable main salon/galley area with a full size fridge and dinette. Outside living is outstanding with the covered aft deck and spacious bridge deck. The 426 has a great reputation as a safe and stable platform with her modified V hull and twin engines. "Ruffin' It" is in great shape and ready for her new owners.

The split-cabin arrangement allows owners and guests complete privacy. This classic Chris Craft sleeps up toseven in two separate staterooms. Her interior is very clean with carpets and upholstery in great condition.

The main salon is spacious with a large L-shaped, ultra-leather convertible settee and lots of cabinets. Those who like lots of natural air and light will appreciate the large windshield and the opening side windows with screens. When privacy or shade is desired just close the mini blinds and snap on the windshield cover.

The dinette is located forward and down from the salon on the port side. The dinette table will seat 5-6 people in a U-shaped configuration and is quite comfortable. There is plenty of storage behind teak cabinets. The galley is on the same level as the dinette and is located directly to starboard. The galley has all the necessary equipment to cook any type of meal desired. There is a microwave oven, a three burner cook top & oven, large, stand-up refrigerator/freezer, a double sink and a large amount of storage and counter space.

Guest Stateroom & Head

The forward stateroom has a centerline island double berth with storage drawers below, a good sized hanging locker, two opening ports and an overhead hatch. This stateroom also has a vanity with molded in sink plus a private combination head/shower room.

Master Stateroom & Head

This is a very large private master stateroom with a large centerline queen-size island bed, large well-lit vanity, and two large hanging lockers. Windows on three sides provide natural air and light to this area if desired. This stateroom has its own private head compartment with full-size bathtub, shower, Vacu-flush toilet, and a solid countertop vanity with molded-in sink.


The bridge area has ample seating with separate helm and companion chairs. The helm controls are located in the forward portion of the bridge for good visibility. The bridge deck is easily accessed by steps and can accommodate owners and guests for cocktails and the view.

Aft Deck

The aft deck is a great entertainment area. There is also direct access to the swim platform on the transom.
