1 [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] <p>Mike Levell&nbsp;was born on the shores of Lake St. Clair in southeast Michigan. He now splits his time between Michigan and south Florida. Back in 1983, he decided to buy a 52′ wooden motor yacht to restore and cruise the Great Lakes. The restoration happened and he was hooked on boating. Shortly thereafter, he was offered a mate position on a busy corporate yacht cruising between south Florida and the Great Lakes. This naturally led him to get his master’s license. He has since maintained and captained many motor yachts all over the Great Lakes, the East Coast, and Florida (including about 25 trips between south Florida and the Great Lakes). In 1991, a happy repeat client of AYS introduced Mike to the company and he has been with us ever since. Mike prides himself on having some of the cleanest yachts available among his listings. He prefers to preview the yachts that he shows to his buyers to make sure that they are as good as the photos and spec sheets portray. He is not afraid to travel for his clients. The majority of his clients come back to him every time they are ready for a different boat.</p> 81001 Mike Levell [empty string] 60000566 [empty string] 586.530.3318 St. Clair Shores USA https://media.iyba.pro/biopic/ad5a3ebaedcda90f5fcbf2b4e23d010a.png mike@ayssales.com https://www.facebook.com/YachtBrokerage [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] https://www.instagram.com/atlanticyachtandship/ https://www.linkedin.com/company/atlantic-yacht-&-ship 60000566 [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] MI [empty string] https://twitter.com/Yacht_Brokerage https://atlanticyachtandship.com https://www.youtube.com/user/atlanticyachtandship 48080

1 <p>Only 118 Futura’s were made between 1956 and 1958 and only one with a black hull, "Black Beauty”. Her current owner was told that she was ordered for the son of a Detroit Chris Craft Dealer. However, after an article came out in the Brass Bell publication featuring "Black Beauty", the son of Whitey Rommelare, the first owner, contacted the current owners to let them know that Black Beauty was actually ordered by his father for his personal craft. When the current owners purchased her in 1986 she was in very good condition except that her canvas cabin top was worn. After hiring master craftsmen to remove and replace the top canvas with a west system coating and gleaming white paint, the rest of the boat did not look quite as good in comparison. This was the start of a 16 year refit / rebuild to turn this rare Futura into what she is today. Over the 16 year odyssey two of the best in the business master marine craftsmen completely rebuilt her, improving on many aspects and making her much better than she was as new. A purist may snub his nose at her because of some of the improvements but the owner and his team set out to make a masterpiece. Her original Hercules engines were replaced with factory remanufactured Crusaders custom painted black with lots of polished stainless steel accessories including polished stainless exhaust tubes (all the way to the transom). The aluminum J moldings were re-created out of stainless, as was the bow Samson post. All chrome was rechromed. The toe rails were recreated out of mahogany. A slightly raised teak deck was fabricated at the aft of the side decks for easier access and to divert water off the side of the boat instead of into the cockpit. All new tanks and wiring were installed. The dash was custom&nbsp;created. The hull side seams were routed, strips of mahogany were epoxied in, and new seams were cut. Every inch of this boat was touched. Every bottom plank removed and refastened. All decks were removed and refastened or replaced. The most amazing thing about this vessel is that after her rebuild she then traveled (in the water) to many distant locations throughout the Great Lakes for many years and when you inspect her she looks as good as she did the day her 16 year rebuild was completed. “Black Beauty” owners are looking for the proper guardian to look after her going forward.<br></p> 0 Introduction
2 <p>Black Beauty underwent a complete restoration and re-powering that was completed in 2002. Great attention to detail was used for all aspects of the restoration process. All wiring , plumbing, and mechanical systems were newly installed to make this vessel in like-new condition. The finish of the painted and varnished surfaces also received great attention to detail, resulting in an impressive, like-new condition. Black Beauty is highly regarded in the antique and classic boating community and consistently places highly in all the shows that she attends.&nbsp;<br></p> 1 2002 Restoration
3 <p>The cabin space consists of a cozy V-berth forward, a practical galley on the starboard side, a dinette to port, and an enclosed head to starboard. The helm is located on the cockpit deck port side with double passenger seats at either side. A large open deck continues aft of the helm. The entire aft deck/cockpit area is protected by a hand railing on the gunnels and across the transom.<br></p> 2 Accommodations

"Black Beauty"

33' Chris-Craft 33 Futura 1957


Seattle Yachts is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Atlantic Yacht & Ship, Inc.. It is offered as a convenience by this broker/dealer to its clients and is not intended to convey direct representation of a particular vessel

Only 118 Futura’s were made between 1956 and 1958 and only one with a black hull, "Black Beauty”. Her current owner was told that she was ordered for the son of a Detroit Chris Craft Dealer. However, after an article came out in the Brass Bell publication featuring "Black Beauty", the son of Whitey Rommelare, the first owner, contacted the current owners to let them know that Black Beauty was actually ordered by his father for his personal craft. When the current owners purchased her in 1986 she was in very good condition except that her canvas cabin top was worn. After hiring master craftsmen to remove and replace the top canvas with a west system coating and gleaming white paint, the rest of the boat did not look quite as good in comparison. This was the start of a 16 year refit / rebuild to turn this rare Futura into what she is today. Over the 16 year odyssey two of the best in the business master marine craftsmen completely rebuilt her, improving on many aspects and making her much better than she was as new. A purist may snub his nose at her because of some of the improvements but the owner and his team set out to make a masterpiece. Her original Hercules engines were replaced with factory remanufactured Crusaders custom painted black with lots of polished stainless steel accessories including polished stainless exhaust tubes (all the way to the transom). The aluminum J moldings were re-created out of stainless, as was the bow Samson post. All chrome was rechromed. The toe rails were recreated out of mahogany. A slightly raised teak deck was fabricated at the aft of the side decks for easier access and to divert water off the side of the boat instead of into the cockpit. All new tanks and wiring were installed. The dash was custom created. The hull side seams were routed, strips of mahogany were epoxied in, and new seams were cut. Every inch of this boat was touched. Every bottom plank removed and refastened. All decks were removed and refastened or replaced. The most amazing thing about this vessel is that after her rebuild she then traveled (in the water) to many distant locations throughout the Great Lakes for many years and when you inspect her she looks as good as she did the day her 16 year rebuild was completed. “Black Beauty” owners are looking for the proper guardian to look after her going forward.

Black Beauty underwent a complete restoration and re-powering that was completed in 2002. Great attention to detail was used for all aspects of the restoration process. All wiring , plumbing, and mechanical systems were newly installed to make this vessel in like-new condition. The finish of the painted and varnished surfaces also received great attention to detail, resulting in an impressive, like-new condition. Black Beauty is highly regarded in the antique and classic boating community and consistently places highly in all the shows that she attends. 

The cabin space consists of a cozy V-berth forward, a practical galley on the starboard side, a dinette to port, and an enclosed head to starboard. The helm is located on the cockpit deck port side with double passenger seats at either side. A large open deck continues aft of the helm. The entire aft deck/cockpit area is protected by a hand railing on the gunnels and across the transom.
