1965 18ft. Thompson by Chris Craft Sea-V18 runabout.
Very rare.

Chris Craft was looking to buy a company that produced lapstrake boats in the 15-20 foot lengths to compliment their Sea Skiff line of boats. In 1962 they bought the Cortland, New York Thompson plant and rebadged the boat “Thompson by Chris Craft”. This boat was purchased from the original owner in Marysville, WA in 2002 and stayed in the area till 2021. In 2005 the hull was stripped, sanded and painted. New marine grade hull decking was also fabricated during this time. This work was done by a local professional boat builder. All parts, seats, windshield, emblems, flooring, etc. are all in good condition. The boat was never reassembled and put in the water, and has always been garaged since the work was finished. In 2021, the boat was sold and relocated to Southern California, where additional work was done including varnish.  

The motor is a 1968 85hp Evinrude Starflite Electric Shift outboard motor. The engine was completely gone over in 2021. Everything that was either broken, or needed to be replaced, was done. This included a new engine harness (custom made because no longer available) all electrical components including NOS Voltage regulator, Rectifier, Amplifier, Choke solenoid, Coil and Yoke, Alternator stator and numerous other pieces. The lower unit has a new complete Water pump assembly, and all the bearings and seals in the lower unit are all new. The carburetor has been rebuilt and the fuel pump is a NOS. All new fuel lines. The engine has been cosmetically restored with new paint and restored Evinrude badges.

The wire harness from the motor to the dash is new, (custom made also), along with all new components in the dash, including ignition switch, choke switch, AMP meter, wiring and dash plate. All new battery cables and battery are also included. The fuel tank has been completely cleaned and restored, along with all new fuel lines. The Electric Shift control has been gone through, and the shift selector switch has been replaced with a new NOS one, along with a new throttle cable.

If interested, the motor is on a stand and can be run, shifted and confirm that everything functions as it is supposed to. There is a video available of it running. Also, there is a parts list available of all the parts and pieces that have been installed in this restoration. Over $4,100.00 in new parts.

17’ Cruiser Inc.

Back in 2010 I got this boat through a cousin. He had a neighbor that was tearing down his barn. The boat was in it and he had no interest in it. He figured he would just burn the boat with everything else. I looked at it, had no idea what it was but felt it should be saved. I have eight boats including a dragster and a rare Aristocraft.  

Anyway I bought it along with a 70 horse Direct drive Merc he had for sale that was on another boat. I re-moved all the paint, checked for rot and didn’t find any. She was in amazing condition after being in a barn for who the hell knows how long.

I refastened every screw, sanded everything including the interior. I replaced the dashboard, tore the blue vinyl off the deck and replaced the wood. Varnished everything. I have the old seats (not sure I would use them) and the mounts for a cover.

The boat has never been in the water. The engine starts and I have put a hose in her to see what happens. She doesn’t leak. The trailer is a bunk trailer, a Tracker Trailstar.

1963 Thompson Sea Mate

No engine. The boat and trailer are in reasonably good condition. I have been running it every year for the last ten years through the summer of 2019.  

She is water tight and solid. In the last five years it has gotten a new deck, new seats with custom upholstery, skeg replaced and new windshield framing. The boat needs one frame replaced which could be scarfed in. She needs varnish and paint.

I think it is a great boat for a small lake or pond. We moved to Bristol Rhode Island and I feel it is just to light given the prevailing winds here on Narragansett Bay. Obviously we would like it to go to a home where the folks are familiar with Thompsons and give her the attention she needs.

Lots of happy memories here and she turns heads on the launch ramp.

1959 Thompson Thomboy.

She was built in 1959 and sold for the first time in 1960.

The boat has always been trailered for day use, only on fresh water lakes and never put in the water for any extended period. When a divorce came into the picture in 1964, one of my best friends bought it and we spent much of the next seven years enjoying it.

In 1974, two years after he was transferred to Pittsburgh he called me and said the water was too polluted for his taste, so I bought her. I’ve had the boat ever since.

She is sitting on the original Tee Nee trailer. The engine, a Mercury Mark 78, runs fine and was gone through in 2016. At that time the impeller was replaced among other maintenance items and is in excellent shape.

The bottom has been painted however she could use a coat of varnish on the brightwork. It has been a reliable and fun boat all these years with many more to offer. I want her to go to a good home. She only needs a little TLC.

Very rare Thompson Victory Day Cruiser.

Built in 1965 this model was built in a very limited quantity.

She comes in at 24’ and is totally original including the Gator trailer as well as the top and aft cover with the Thompson emblem. She has always been kept indoors.

From 1965 to 2000 she was on Lake Minnetonka Mn. In 2000 I purchased it and restored it, and have used it every summer at my cabin on Leech Lake, MN since.

The Victory Day Cruiser was the largest Thompson built, at least in their era of wood production for that period. In 2002 I brought her to the Thompson rally in Marinette Wisconsin where Pete Thompson told me they built a couple more, one with twin engines for the Michigan Army Core of Engineers. She is powered by a 240 CI inline six cylinder GM engine with a Mercruiser I drive. Both engine and outdrive have been totally rebuilt. The 165 HP power plant pushes it right along. The pictures with this ad include a shot of John and Virginia Good, the original owners who special ordered it from the Thompson factory in Peshtigo, Wisconsin.

The boat includes too many options and extras to list including Mooring lines, life jackets, anchor etc.
