"Checkmate" is a Riva / Chris Craft lookalike powered by a Riva/Crusader 210hp V8 gasoline marine engine with a Borg Warner velvet drive and a 1:1 hydraulic gearbox.
Speeds of up to 55 knots have been achieved on this beautiful, fast runabout. She has a deep vee hull with flattened aft sections, varnished mahogany topsides, engine covers and margin boards. Teak on marine ply decks. Dash and all visible mahogany is varnished.
Cockpit instrumentation includes tachometer, oil pressure, temp, ammeter and 12V socket. A detachable teak "music box" is fitted which houses a CD / radio and speaker set. A wood rimmed Momo wheel and a super smooth single lever chrome Morse control is fitted.
Comes on a custom built trailer, this is a modern classic which is priced for a quick sale and will prove a sound investment if looked after.
