For Sale - 1959 Crestliner Jetstreak 14ft with 1963 Sea King 40hp on a Tee Nee Trailer

1959 Crestliner Jetstreak 14ft with 1963 Sea King 40hp on a Tee Nee Trailer located in Charleston, SC.
Asking $4,750. The boat and motor was restored by John Monahan's company on 2009. The trailer was restored the same year by Del Emmerik.

The boat has been used some since then so it's not showroom perfect, but it is really nice and never fails to turn heads and start conversations.
Just let me know if you have any questions. I can provide additional pictures or video as needed.
