1989/2021 Chris-Craft 502 Custom
Unique…Rare. Words often used in the motoryacht world. REEL RARE is truly the epitome of those descriptors. This one-of-a-kind custom Sport fisher started life as a 1989 Chris-Craft 502 Commander. Never heard of it? Maybe that's because only two ever came to market. Built for a pair of company executives, CC took a legendary blue-water hull, the Uniflight 48, added a few feet... then created a purpose-built high performance (40kt), long-range (1000 mi) cruiser equal or exceeding anything in the market at her size.
REEL RARE was rediscovered in 2016 and immediately, the new owner took on a 5 year “cost-is-no-object” hull up redesign/refit. Everything…hull, superstructure, flybridge/hardtop, rear deck was rebuilt, redesigned to modern performance and styling. The final touch is an amazing hull mirror finish in Anniversary White. After a $1.2+ m investment, REEL RARE appears on the 2022 stage as one of the most beautiful 50 footers ever. The description and pictures are designed to impress but you have to see this boat in person. A special boat for a special client!

There is not enough space to full describe what has been done on REEL RARE since 2016 so you will just have a look see for yourself... or at least give us a call. But the short answer is the current owner spared no expense to improve the performance, structure (from hull to flybridge, bow to stern), and most importantly, for maximum "ON WATER-APPEAL", updated the styling to reflect modern tastes. This boat looks, feels, and performs nothing like the original factory offering.
