Django is a 36-foot Double Stateroom Enclosed Cruiser designed and built in 1946 by the Chris-Craft Corporation in Algonac, Michigan.

Advertised as a “big, beamy boat... extra sturdy... and seaworthy”, she was delivered to E.H. Geil Chris-Craft Sales in Spokane, Washington on August 29, 1946 destined for Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Originally powered by two-115 R.D. Chrysler Crown engines, she currently cruises comfortably at 8-9 knots powered by twin Marine Power four-cylinder 181 gas engines.

Chris-Craft re-entered pleasure craft production after WWII starting with the 1946 model year. Django was 14th in the hull number series of C-36-001 to C-36-124. An additional 38 boats of this model were made within a different series totaling 162 hulls built.

Recent years of restoration and improvements have brought her to where she is today. The large enclosed stateroom makes cruising a pleasure and enjoyable year-round in the Pacific Northwest where she currently resides.
